Vuntie - physical penetration test




1. Planning and Reconnaissance: This initial phase involves a comprehensive understanding of your organization's physical environment. We gather detailed information about your facilities, including the layout, potential entry points, and existing security measures. This step is crucial for developing an effective testing strategy and identifying potential vulnerabilities.

2. Physical Intrusion Testing: In this phase, we simulate real-world intrusion attempts to evaluate your physical security infrastructure. We use a variety of techniques, including tailgating, lock picking, and testing of server rooms, wires, and cables. Our goal is to identify any loopholes that could be exploited by a real attacker. This hands-on approach allows us to understand the practical challenges and vulnerabilities that exist in your physical security controls.

3. Social Engineering: We perform social engineering tests to assess the awareness and behavior of your employees. This involves using deceptive tactics to extract sensitive information from your employees, such as shoulder surfing, where an attacker looks over an employee's shoulder to observe them typing their credentials. This step helps us understand the human factor vulnerabilities in your organization.

4. Access Control Testing: We test the effectiveness of your access control measures, including RFID tags, network jacks, and electromagnetic locks. This involves attempting to bypass these controls to gain unauthorized access to your facilities or network. This step helps us identify any weaknesses in your access control measures that could be exploited.

5. Reporting and Follow-up: After the testing phase, we provide a detailed report outlining our findings, including any vulnerabilities we identified and recommendations for improving your physical security. We also perform a follow-up assessment to ensure that the recommended remediation and mitigation steps have been accurately implemented. This step ensures that our recommendations are effectively implemented and that your physical security is improved.
vuntie approach to physical penetration testing


Our methodology for physical penetration testing is grounded in academic research and industry best practices, with a strong emphasis on ethical considerations and procedural rigor. Here's an overview of the theoretical underpinnings of our methodology:

1. Risk-Based Approach: We prioritize areas with the highest risk, focusing on vulnerabilities that could have the most significant impact on your organization. This involves a detailed risk assessment to understand the potential impact of different vulnerabilities.

2. Environment-Focused Method: This method measures the security of the environment where the asset is located. It is suitable for tests where the custodian (the person who controls the asset) is not subject to social engineering and is aware of the execution of the test. This method assesses how well the employees follow the security policies of the organization and how effective the existing physical security controls are.

3. Custodian-Focused Method: This method is a refinement of the Environment-Focused Method. The custodian is not aware of the test, making the methodology suitable for penetration tests where the goal is to check the overall security of an area, including the level of security awareness of the custodian. This method is used to find and exploit gaps in the existing policies rather than in their implementation.

4. Ethical Considerations: All our tests are conducted ethically, respecting the employees and the mutual trust between employees. We ensure that the tests do not cause productivity loss of employees and that all actions during the test are logged for transparency.

5. Continuous Improvement: We believe in the importance of regular testing and continuous improvement. Our methodology includes follow-up assessments to ensure that security improvements are implemented effectively. This involves regular retesting and adjustment of our strategies based on the changing security landscape
