[FS-IPT] Infrastructure Penetration Testing



An Infrastructure Penetration Testing is a method of evaluating the security of a computer system or network by simulating an attack. It's an act performed with a specific goal which determines the success status of the test and can be any combination of attack methods depending on the goal and rules of engagement set. 

The process involves identifying the target systems, then reviewing the information available and undertaking any available means agreed upon to reach the set goal. A Penetration Testing is usually white box where all background and system information is provided or black box where only basic or no information is provided other than the company name. A Penetration Testing will advise if a system is vulnerable to attack, if the defenses were sufficient and which defenses (if any) were defeated in the penetration testing.

Effective Penetration Testings will couple this information with an accurate assessment of the potential impacts to the organization and outline a range of technical and procedural countermeasures to reduce risks.

Penetration Testings are valuable for several reasons:


  1. Determining the feasibility of a particular set of attack vectors
  2. Identifying higher-risk vulnerabilities that result from a combination of lower-risk vulnerabilities exploited in a particular sequence
  3. Identifying vulnerabilities that may be difficult or impossible to detect with automated network or application vulnerability scanning software
  4. Assessing the magnitude of potential business and operational impacts of successful attacks
  5. Testing the ability of network defenders to successfully detect and respond to the attacks
  6. Providing evidence to support increased investments in security personnel and technology


Penetration Testings are a component of a Full Security Audit. For example, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and Security and Auditing standard, requires both annual and ongoing penetration testing (after system changes).



The strength of a valuable and effective Infrastructure Penetration Testing (IPT) resides in Ethical Hacking and manual skills of the Tester, in their years-long experience and in their Analytic attitude, Coding and Exploiting skills - all of this are Fulgur Security's strengths.

An Infrastructure PT is not just an automated task and any security tools is useful but not the only thing rely upon on - in practice it's not the solution to the problem.

Our Infrastructure Penetration Testing is a more deep process that use our Ethical Hacking skills, tools and 0day exploits to evaluate Target in scope. This process is the only that can uncover vulnerabilities on Servers difficult or impossible to detect with automated application vulnerability scanning software only.

The biggest difference between us and other realities is that we offer our multi-annual and proven Ethical Hacking expertise and professionalism (maturated in hacking/academic/professional circles) to perform our own high-value Infrastructure Penetration Testing.



We use our own manual pentesting skills and a patient, well thought-out, and methodical approach. We also use our own PT private products developed after years of Penetration Testing activities and our own FS-PT Labs and the better PT Scanning tools/suites (both Open and Commercial).



We strictly follow both OSSTMM and ETHICAL HACKING methodologies & our own personal FULGUR SECURITY approach (born after many years of experience in hacking/intelligence/darknet world and so focused to understand deep any cyber security threats) to perform our PT.



As a result of our Infrastructure Penetration Testing we delivery a Professional Security Report with a deep description of any issues found and their business/risk impact - we also propose Security Remediation and a Remediation Plan for any vulnerabilities found.
