Types of Web Application Penetration Testing
The two main types of web app penetration testing are internal and external.Internal pen testing
This testing focuses on identifying potential vulnerabilities within the organization's firewall on web apps hosted on the intranet. Ethical hacking is executed using invalid credentials to access the system and determine the possible damage and route of a possible attack.External pen testing
This type of penetration testing focuses on external attacks on the web applications hosted on the internet. Ethical hackers (pen testers) simulate external attacks using the IP address of the target system, the front and back-end servers, and other web apps hosted on the internet using blind testing, double-blind and targeted testing.
