Vulnerability scan or vulnerability assessment is done to find out known vulnerabilities in a system. Vulnerability assessment tools such as Nessus, OpenVas are used for assessment. They help identify the vulnerability but do not distinguish between flaws that can be exploited to cause damage and those that cannot. Scanning is done continuously, especially after new equipment is loaded. Vulnerability assessment focuses on:

  • Identifying potential vulnerabilities
  • Classifying vulnerabilities into High, Moderate, and Low risk vulnerabilities
  • Identifying assets connected to the network

VAPT can be performed in the following phases:

  1. Test preparation Phase
  2. Test Phase - Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration testing
  3. Report Generation

Website VAPT or Website vulnerability assessment and penetration testing is a step by step procedure to determine the security of the website by finding the vulnerabilities if any and taking appropriate actions against them. The security can be assessed from the point of view of an end user, an admin and from anonymous user. Some of the vulnerabilities that can be found out using website VAPT are:
  • SQL Injection
  • SQL injection is a web attack technique where the attacker makes an application runs the code which is not intended to. It is considered as a user input vulnerability. Hackers use this method to steal information from organizations.

    SQL Map is a tool which can be used to detect this attack.
  • Cross site scripting
  • Cross-site Scripting also called XSS or CSS are attacks that occur when an attacker uses a web application to send malicious code, generally in the form of a browser side script, to a different end user. It leverages vulnerabilities in the code of a web application to allow an attacker to send malicious content from an end-user and collect some type of data from the victim. Flaws that allow these attacks to succeed are quite widespread and occur anywhere a web application uses input from a user in the output it generates without validating or encoding it.

Cookies are small text files or messages that a web server passes to the web browser when an internet site is accessed. It can be considered as an identity card. Cookies are created when you first visit a website. Upon each visit to the website again the browser passes the cookie back to the web server. This helps to track web site activity of individuals. A cookie consists of the following 7 components:
  1. Name of the cookie
  2. Value of the cookie
  3. Expiry of the cookie
  4. Path
  5. Domain
  6. Need for a secure connection to use the cookie
  7. Whether or not the cookie can be accessed through other means than HTTP (i.e., JavaScript)
A honeypot is an information system designed to attract potential hackers who attempt to penetrate an organization's network. Honeypots are designed to mimic systems that an intruder would like to break into but limit the intruder from having access to an entire network. Most honeypots are installed inside a firewall. A honeypot logs in access attempts and keystrokes of the hacker. Thus honeypot fools attackers by making them believe it is a legitimate system. They attack the system without knowing that they are being observed.
