Penetration Testing

Hello Friends,

We have taken up a project "Network Security Audit" as our college project.

Well we have basic knowledge about Computer Network and TCP/IP.

I want to know a few things about pentration testing.

1) How a company performs "Network Security Audit"?

2) what are the procedures or steps of performing such security audit?

3) what are the tools required for performing audit?

4) what are the skill sets required to perform such audit?

5) Are there any books available in market to help us??

6) which things do u obviously look for while performing security audits
