Our approach to IoT penetration testing is thorough, meticulous, and tailored to the unique needs of each client. We conduct our tests from the perspective of an external malicious black-hat hacker and can conduct either black box, grey box, or white box tests based on your requirements. Our process is as follows:
Scoping: Our testing experts will engage in discovery activities, such as understanding your IoT penetration test security needs and requirements, existing SLAs, potential vulnerability exposures, and defining the scope. We also analyze other aspects such as complexity, tailoring possibilities, and threat intelligence focus.
Reconnaissance: We conduct IoT security discovery activities, such as reviewing hardware flaws, firmware at risk, and other potential vulnerability exposures. We also engage in reverse engineering of elements extracted from the hardware equipment.
Exploitation: During this phase, we perform the attacks, trying to breach the IoT device. This tests your IoT product's resiliency to attack, the coverage of your security monitoring, and the efficacy of your detection capabilities.
Remediation Verification: Our IoT penetration testers perform a follow-up assessment to ensure that the remediation and mitigation steps from the exploitation phase have been accurately implemented. This also enables us to confirm that your security posture is aligned with industry best practices.
Cleanup, Document Analysis, and Reporting: We conduct a thorough cleanup after the testing process, analyze the results, and create detailed reports. These reports are then presented to stakeholders, allowing you to easily benchmark the security level of each process based on the results of the penetration tests. We can also assist with the implementation of countermeasures if requested by the customer.
