What is Black-Box Testing?

Black-box testing is a type of penetration testing where the pentester has no information regarding any of the security systems in place. It is the most realistic simulation of a cyberattack where testers employ similar hacking techniques but with your permission to find and report vulnerabilities within security.

Benefits of Black Box Testing

  1. Simulates Actual Attack: Black-box testers employ the same methods a hacker would without any prior information about the target. 
  2. Better Security Visibility: Better visibility is provided to an asset’s security posture,  effectivity, and weaknesses since it mimics a real-life cyberattack. 
  3. Detect Vulnerabilities: Black-box testing aids in the timely detection and identification of vulnerabilities which is mitigated quickly to improve the security posture.
  4. Aids Compliance: Black-box testing helps achieve and maintain compliance with regulatory standards such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOC2, ISO 27001, and GDPR.

Black Box Testing Techniques

  1. Software Pentesting: Software pentesting is done to spot any internal or external vulnerabilities like insecure spots or gaps in the application.
  2. Source Code Testing: Source codes are scanned and tested to find any vulnerabilities through faulty injections and code scanning. 
  3. Vulnerability Scans: Vulnerability scans are carried out on asset security for vulnerability detection and identification for quick remediation and mitigation. 
  4. Fuzz Testing: Here, random data called fuzzers are injected into an application to detect errors that are specific to it.
