Assignment title: SOP for PenTesting
This assignment has two tasks. Task 1 is an individual task that will assess your understanding of the statutory and ethical issues surrounding penetration testing Task 2 is a group task that will assess your understanding of the pentest process itself. Please ensure that in completing these tasks you deploy the techniques you have been taught. If you produce work that is not concise and to the point, then marks may be reduced.
Task 1 (Individual work)
Task 1 is an individual exercise. It is expected that task 1 will be in the region of 1500 words. You are expected to comment on the statutory and ethical considerations of a penetration tester working in the UK. You are expected to undertake research and critically compare the published penetration testing methodologies (such as OWASP, PTES, OSSTMM…) in order to deduce their applicability for the second assignment. In order to undertake the comparison, you will have to justify your comparison criteria. The target of the second assignment will be one Linux-based webserver. Your research findings will be used in Task 2.
If you fail to provide references using the Harvard referencing style as per the University regulations, your work will be marked as superficial and it is unlikely to obtain a passing grade.
Task 2 (Group work)
Task 2 is a group exercise. As a group, you will have to decide on how you will manage this task, what roles you will each have and how you will manage change during the lifecycle of this assignment. You are expected to work together and design/develop a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), including a decision-making tree, to describe how you will undertake the second assignment. Each group member will then include the SOP and the decision tree to his/her report. In particular: intelligence gathering (target profiling), vulnerability identification and analysis, and target exploitation (including post exploitation). An SOP is defined as a set of step-by-step instructions compiled by an organization to help workers carry out routine operations.
I am looking for a design and for a structure (SOP). not for a lot of text.
|Task 1: Legal and ethical consideration of a penetration tester in the UK|
|Task 1: Comparison Criteria|
|Task 1: PenTest Methodology Comparison|
|Task 2: Group management|
|Task 2: SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) for Task 2|
|Task 2: Decision Making Tree for Task 2|
You are required to submit a docx report. You are expected to demonstrate an insight into the implications of the problem introduced in each task by using clear and concise arguments.
