is penetration testing difficult?

Hi,

I want to know penetration testing details.

Some customers ask security auditing. How to do it and what to do for that?

Re: is penetration testing difficult?

A penetration test is a method of evaluating the security of a computer system or network by simulating an attack by a malicious cracker. Any security issues that are found will be presented to the system owner together with an assessment of their impact and often with a proposal for mitigation or a technical solution.

The Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM)is a peer-reviewed methodology for performing security tests
