Business Terms and Jargon Explained

What is Penetration Testing

The portion of security testing in which the testers attempt to circumvent the security features of a system. The testers sometimes use system design and implementation documentation, which may include listings of system source code, manuals, and circuit diagrams.

They can also work under the same constraints applied to ordinary users. This practice is sometimes called 'ethical hacking'.
