Most organisations assume that attackers are outside their network and therefore only need to take care of their perimeter security. Unfortunately, this assumption is the source of many data leaks affecting organisations. An internal network penetration test can help you better understand how a single malware infected computer, stolen credentials or rogue employees can undermine your organisation’s security.
Krash Consulting’s Penetration Testing campaign includes both automation testing and manual testing with a standard ratio of 1:9 respectively to perform its services effectively.
Some of the techniques used are associated with vulnerability scanning to perform tests are automated, such as:
- Network scanning using various methods (e.g. SYN scans, UDP scans, ACK scans)
- Vulnerability scanning to identify various low-hanging vulnerabilities
- Specialised network scanning for specific protocols (such as SIP, IPMI and SNMP)
For a Penetration Test to be effective, we perform the a large number of manual tests allowing us to simulate real attackers which includes:
- Man-in-the-Middle attacks
- Exploitation of software that has not been hardened or securely configured
- Exploitation and demonstration of known vulnerabilities which are typically detected through network scanning but not verified
- Pass-the-hash (PtH) attacks, lateral movements, NTLM offline bruteforce, credential dumping etc.
- Default or weak credentials
- Lack of network access control and proper network segmentation
- Ways to bypass or abuse security solutions
- Obvious security issues within the target software (low hanging fruit)
Krash Consulting’s Network Penetration Test is a hand-crafted and thoroughly executed assault on your systems and applications. Our goal: to reveal any hidden threats and vulnerabilities so you can take action to address them.
Planning & execution by highly skilled cybersecurity experts
Krash Consulting penetration testers run a full series of hand-crafted simulated attacks against your systems and applications. We view your systems the way an intruder would – anything from a teen thrill-hacker to malicious assaults by highly skilled adversaries. Our personnel can quickly identify the most likely vectors for attacks.
A firmly established level of effort
Our methodology includes a clear understanding of which assets are within the evaluation boundary. This level of effort can be correlated to the importance of the systems, the system owner’s risk aversion, or the anticipated motivation of adversaries.
Thoroughly researching your employees
We also research your users through Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) sources such as social networking sites, online trade journals, and others. There we can gather clues about potential usernames, passwords, roles-based privileges, and other information that’s useful for “breaking and entering.” (Sounds scary, right? It is. But that’s what the bad guys do. And you want us thinking and acting like bad guys).
Strict rules of engagement
We establish a strong, concise document signed by both parties that establishes the ground rules for your engagement, including when and where we will be testing, which systems we’re attacking, start and stop rules, and other guidelines for our mutual protection and security.
Hand-crafted penetration attempts
Utilizing the results of the tools and the research, Krash Consulting analysts conduct hand-crafted penetration attempts to determine areas of weakness. Our security experts besides being skilled in penetration testing, they are proficient in area of exploitation and reverse engineering which makes them exclusive in their area leaving none for competition.
Thoroughly documented reports and suggestions
Documenting the results of all major penetration attempt vectors, Krash Consulting prepares and delivers a report detailing the types of tests that were attempted, the status of their success or failure, any discovered issues and the resultant risks (sorted by priority), and suggested remediation efforts. In order to address your comments and feedback, we may provide draft and final versions of the report.
Our methodology is also consistent with guidance from external organizations such as OWASP (Open Web Applications Security Project), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM).
