    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a web application?
    A web application is an application program that is hosted on a remote server and delivered over the Internet through a browser.
    What is the difference between a web application security penetration test and a web application security assessment?
    A web application security assessment is conducted to identify security weaknesses, vulnerabilities or misconfigurations in the program. A web application security penetration test is both the identification of these vulnerabilities and the specific attempt to exploit them to quantify their potential impact on the application and/or asset it may process. Best practice dictates conducting routine assessments, remediating any vulnerabilities found in the assessments and then conducting penetration testing (i.e. lock down the house before trying to break in to verify the security controls).
    Is conducting web application security penetration testing mandatory?
    Any compliance frameworks require conducting security penetration testing of business web applications if they process, store or transmit cardholder data (Payment Card Industry, Data Security Standards PCI DSS) or personal and/or sensitive data (Data Protection Act). Conducting web application security penetration testing is recognised as best practice by open standards such as IS0 27001.
    What tool is used to conduct a web application security penetration test?
    Good testers use a combination of commercial and open-source tools when testing a web application. Tool selection also may depend on the application build and hosting environment. Tools are usually selected after threat modelling to ensure they apply to the application build. You should discuss tools used with your testing provider.
    What are the best open-source web app penetration testing tools?
    There are many good open-source application security penetration testing tools. Risk Crew recommends:
    1. Zed Attack Proxy
    2. Wfuzz
    3. Wapiti
    4. SQLMap
    5. W3af
