External Penetration Testing - EPT
External penetration testing follows the same basic outline as the internal penetration testing. The main difference is that the external testing is conducted remotely using E3 systems hosted at our data center. Utilizing the Penetration Execution Standard (PTES). E3 will follow the framework described above against all the internet facing systems we are authorized to test.
External testing includes the same basic stages as the internal penetration testing does:
Passive and Active information gathering
Vulnerability identification and ranking
Threat modeling and exploitation attempts
Denial of service attacks
Brute force attacks
