An infrastructure penetration test provides your organization with a security analysis of the effectiveness of your internal and external security systems . As the basis for secure applications and communication, the system and network infrastructure must not be neglected. This guidelineapplies to companies of all sizes, especially for critical infrastructures (KRITIS). Advanced knowledge in the area of server operating systems, transport encryption and infrastructure configuration enables our pentesters to perform manual as well as automated scans, evaluate them and initiate appropriate countermeasures.
The pentest for infrastructures is planned, performed and evaluated by our specially trained security engineers according to recognized standards.
As a general rule, the longer our security engineers examine your infrastructure, the more meaningful the results are. If you have special requirements, we will be happy to make you an individual offer.
There are direct and indirect methods of search engine search and education. Direct methods refer to searching the indexes and the related content from the cache. Indirect methods refer to the collection of sensitive design and configuration information by searching in forums, newsgroups and website advertisements.
Firewall rules and policies control the data traffic between LAN and Internet. With the help of these rules the own network can be closed off restrictively against external influences - and this without affecting the generally required Internet traffic. At the same time, faulty rules can also create new weak points. It is therefore advisable to monitor and control the rules continuously.

Even if high-quality encryption is normally used today, a misconfiguration in the server can lead to a weak encryption - or in the worst case no encryption at all - being enforced, allowing an attacker to gain access to the supposedly secure communication channel.
This is usually due to an error (bug) in the operating system or software. Mostly needed is also program code that performs the escalation. Mostly a privilege escalation is used to get root rights. Such tools (possibly in connection with certain actions) are called exploits.
An attacker exploits features of the infrastructure to carry out attacks on network objects or to cause a change in the normal flow of information between network objects. Most often, this involves manipulating the routing of messages so that they are directed at an entity of the attacker instead of arriving at their actual destination.
We use graph theory to uncover the hidden and often unintended relationships within an Active Directory environment. In this way, highly complex attack paths can be identified that would otherwise be very difficult to detect.
The methods for evaluating security and the hardening measures in the environment of IoT (Internet of Things) devices are by no means exclusive mechanisms that can only be found in this area. They are rather the application of various measures at the software, operating system and network level to ensure information security.
We have developed a comprehensive reporting format that provides optimal insight into our work and its results. Pentests are conducted and evaluated according to the OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide.
Pentests carried out by us are an agile process and are carried out in close consultation with the customer.
The preparation of the pentest takes place in the context of a kick-off meeting with the technical and organizational responsible persons of your company. The framework conditions to be tested are specified, necessary user accounts and access routes are agreed, contact persons and escalation routes are defined and the pentest is discussed in detail together.
Our security engineers try to collect as much information as possible. Based on this information, analysis strategies are developed to identify possible attack vectors. These attack vectors are then examined for weak points in extensive tests.
Here we try to exploit the identified vulnerabilities in order to gain access to the target systems, using new or existing exploit writings by our pentester, depending on the respective service or technical environment. Potential vulnerabilities can turn out to be false positives. Only verified vulnerabilities are included in the final report and are classified according to their criticality in accordance with CVSS 3.0.
We have developed a comprehensive reporting format that provides optimal insight into our work and its results. It consists of a business risk analysis, management summary and a comprehensive test and vulnerability description. The criticality of the weaknesses and recommendations for action are described in detail.
Once the analysis is complete, you will be able to fix the identified vulnerabilities, and our analysis will provide you with detailed recommendations about the respective vulnerability. If required, our security engineers can provide extensive support for the elimination.
We are happy to re-examine the security weaknesses to ensure that the defense mechanisms have been implemented correctly. It is important to us that our recommendations are implemented, so this process activity is always free of charge.
In the final meeting, all critical points in the results report are discussed and all questions are clarified. Finally, we will be pleased to present you with a certificate as proof for your customers.
