Penetration testing can identify both known and unknown vulnerabilities and help avoid security breaches. In this course, you'll learn the importance of penetration testing, what system hardening is, and the requirements of penetration testing. You'll then examine the differences between penetration testing and vulnerability assessments, as well as the various types, stages, and methods of penetration testing. Next, you'll learn about white box, black box, and gray box penetration testing, and the differences in penetration testing methodologies. You'll see the available tools for performing penetration testing, as well as the types of outputs resulting from penetration testing. Lastly, you'll learn about penetration testing best practices and how to perform a penetration test.
