A penetration test, commonly known as a pen test or ethical hacking, is an authorized simulated cyberattack on a computer system, performed to evaluate the security of the system. Different types of penetration tests include network services, applications, client side, wireless, social engineering, and physical. A penetration test may be performed externally or internally to simulate different attack angles. The main objective of penetration testing is to identify IT security weaknesses. Information about security weaknesses that are discovered or exploited are then provided to the organization's IT and network system managers, enabling them to implement remediation efforts.
