Web Application

penetration testing

Web application penetration test is an approach to evaluate security by simulating an attack on a web application. We employ a combination of automated and manual techniques to identify vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited by malicious attackers. The goal is to provide clients with insights into their security status and recommend ways to improve their web security.

Specializing in preserving the security of web applications, our penetration testing services are founded on recognized methodologies such as OWASP and ASVS. Our primary focus on manual testing allows us to uncover vulnerabilities often overlooked by automated scanners, facilitating a more secure and reliable web application environment.

Key focus areas include:



Our team employs both active and passive reconnaissance techniques. We locate alternative application instances, like development or test versions, and enumerate hidden directories and files. Furthermore, we try generating exceptions and errors within the application to uncover potential issues or vulnerabilities. Additionally, we employ various investigative techniques, including search engine-based exploration and analysis of available files, to identify potential security risks. This systematic approach equips you with an exhaustive insight into the digital environment, allowing you to secure the web application environment against potential security threats.


Vulnerability Assessment

Our vulnerability assessment is broad and exhaustive, examining a multitude of potential security flaws that could affect web applications. Our assessment also includes the client site vulnerabilities such as XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) - self, reflected and stored. We analyze a spectrum of injection vulnerabilities, including SQL, LDAP, XPATH, SSI injections, as well as XXE (XML External Entity). We assess the application layer with a focus on resource accessibility, evaluating vulnerabilities like Denial of Service, Race Conditions, and lack of Rate Limiting. Furthermore, our evaluation spans across business logic issues, and we actively seek out known vulnerabilities such as Path Traversal, Open Redirection, Cross-Site Request Forgery, Server-Side Request Forgery, and Server-Side Template Injection. In addition, we closely examine the strength of authentication and authorization layers, looking for possible vulnerabilities like unauthorized resource access, or bypassing of login screens, including brute force attempts. We also evaluate the risk of unauthorized access at the system level that could expose application sources, databases, and confidential information. We also review for outdated software dependencies, like libraries and systems, and then try to find any known, serious vulnerabilities within them. This detailed process ensures a thorough security assessment for your web applications, helping to protect them against a wide range of potential threats.


HTTP Server Evaluation

We identify vulnerabilities and security issues in your HTTP server. We analyse SSL/TLS configurations, enumerate management panels, assess default applications, and evaluate default vhost/vhosts configurations. Additionally, we examine unusual HTTP methods such as TRACE, DEBUG, PUT, DELETE to ensure comprehensive protection.


API Penetration Testing

As part of our methodical and detailed cybersecurity strategy, we conduct thorough API penetration testing. This specialized service aims to uncover potential weak spots in your API's structure and functionality. Key focus areas include rate limiting, data leakage points, broken object-level authorization (Insecure Direct Object Reference/Broken Object Level Authorization), and issues with asset management. To establish a comprehensive security profile, we scrutinize API endpoints and payloads, validate the robustness of API authentication methods, and ensure secure data processing practices. As an additional safeguard, we verify the secure management of API keys and tokens and assess error handling procedures to prevent inadvertent disclosure of sensitive data.
