Summary In this chapter, we discussed the need for a methodology when it comes to penetration testing and how it is essential when it comes to building skills as a professional penetration tester. Following this, we reviewed two sample methodologies. We reviewed the penetration testing framework and described the components within the standards, to include the process to follow based on the ports that are discovered during your assessments. The next methodology we discussed was the PTES, and although there is no technical guidance as part of the standard, there is a reference for the technical information that is available.

The standard lists countermeasures within this section and explains the importance of when you are testing, assessing the measures in place, and enumerating them before attempting the exploit. This does make sense when you are testing; it is recommended. The standard also includes the act of evasion, and this is not something that is often part of penetration testing, but it is important to assess the control, so if it is an Intrusion Prevention System or another type then we can identify the threshold.
