Firewall Penetration Testing
Firewall penetration testing is the process of locating, investigating and penetrating a certain firewall in order to reach the internal trusted network of a certain system. Mostly considered to be a key part in external network penetration testing, firewall testing is one of the most important types of network tests that can be conducted as firewalls represent the first line of defense against outside intrusions.
PCS assesses the firewall from the internet. Instead of purely focusing on devices that are published through the firewall, the assessment focuses on the firewall itself. If the device is delivering IPSEC or SSL VPN services, these resources are assessed.
