Security testing involves assessment of a system to detect presence of vulnerability and security weaknesses. Specialized testing tools are used to assess any network/ infrastructure, web application, mobile application etc. Network or infrastructure security testing involves assessment of servers, network devices, network services such as Domain Name Service (DNS) etc. The web application security testing involves assessment of applications that can be accessed by users from web browsers. Mobile application security testing involves assessment of applications that can be accessed by users from mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones. Apart from these, security testing is applicable for less known commercial or custom software applications. The security testing is classified into seven basic types which includes vulnerability scanning, penetration testing, security auditing, security scanning, posture assessment, ethical hacking and risk assessment. Vulnerability scanning is used to scan systems for known vulnerability. Penetration testing involves system analysis to check vulnerability of hacking attempt.
