Penetration Testing and Vulnerability AssessmentS

A Penetration Test (pentest for short) is the process of using approved, qualified personnel to conduct real-world attacks against a system so as to identify and correct security weaknesses before they are discovered and exploited by others with a somewhat less than honorable intent.  Pentests are also useful for testing an organization's responsiveness and defense capabilities (testing IDS/IPS, Intrusion Response Plan, etc.). Also referred to as Ethical Hacking.

A Vulnerability Assessment (VA) is the process of identifying vulnerabilities in computers and networks, as well as weaknesses in policies and practices relating to the operation of these systems. A vulnerability assessment is more general in nature, and has the aim of determining all security faults without necessarily exploiting them.
