Web Application Penetration Testing

The primary objective behind a Web Application Penetration Testing (WAPT) is to identify exploitable web application vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and technical flaws in applications before attackers can discover and exploit them. Web application penetration testing reveals real-world opportunities attackers could use to compromise applications to gain access to sensitive data.

Besides the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM) and the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), Krash Consulting’s penetration testing leverages the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), a framework for assessing the security of web-based applications. Our web application penetration tests simulate real-world attacks to provide a realistic assessment of vulnerabilities and threats to the customer’s application environment.

The assessment analysis presents logical groupings of one or more security issues with common causes and resolutions as a finding, which allows us to quantify and prioritize the business risk to an organization. Consequently, each finding is categorized according to its relative risk level and also contains a rating. Each outcome also contains hyperlinked references to resources and provides detailed remediation information.

External Applications represent an organization’s connectivity to the Internet and its partners, clients, and suppliers. Applications are critical assets that drive revenue, customer awareness, and sales activity, which makes them attractive targets for threat actors, and the source for a majority of reported security breaches.

Internal Applications are accessible through an organization’s internal network that house sensitive information such as intellectual property, client data, employee information, and sales data.

Our elite team exceeds the OWASP Top 10 to test the state of your application and provide actionable recommendations to enhance its security.


Krash Consulting carries out a simulated attack to identify the security flaws present in your environment, address and fix application flaws, and understand the level of security risk to your organization. Our web application security testing prioritizes vulnerabilities according to risk and impact and then delivers clear and concise recommendations to mitigate application flaws as quickly as possible.

Our web application penetration testing methodology is as follows:

Reconnaissance – Searching the Internet for the customer’s public-facing presence and information using OSINT

Network Surveying and Services Identification – Sketching a picture of what the customer’s perimeter looks like to the outside world

Manual Environmental Testing – Analyzing gathered data to build and execute an attack plan

Password Cracking – Attempting to crack any password hashes or brute force any authenticated mechanisms

Manual Application Testing / OWASP Testing Methodology including Access Control / Authorization, Authentication, Session Management, Configuration Management / Web Application Architecture Review, Error Handling, Data Protection, Input Validation

Root Cause Analysis and DREAD Reporting – Identifying the root causes of the issues to be classified and compiled into a final deliverable
