Penetration Testing & Platforms

Penetration testing, also known as pen testing or ethical hacking, is a security assessment technique used to evaluate the security of computer systems, networks, and applications. It involves simulating real-world cyber attacks to identify and exploit security vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and misconfigurations that could be exploited by malicious attackers. Penetration testing platforms provide tools, frameworks, and environments for conducting penetration tests and security assessments, including Kali Linux, Metasploit, Burp Suite, and Nessus.
