When to Conduct Penetration Testing

  • Before deploying a new network or application.
  • After any major changes to the contract's code or functionality.
  • When seeking to attract investors or users who require a high level of security and trust.

Benefits of Conducting Penetration Testing

  • Identifies potential vulnerabilities and security risks in the contract's code.
  • Ensures the contract functions as intended and meets the project's goals and requirements.
  • Increases user and investor confidence in the project's security and reliability.

Smart Contract Audit Process

  • Scoping and Quote Estimation

    Analysis of project requirements and definition of the penetration testing scope, followed by a price estimate for the testing.

  • Initial Testing Report

    The Penetration testing process begins with an initial report highlighting any identified vulnerabilities and providing recommendations for addressing them.

  • Re-Testing Phase

    After the client has addressed the issues identified in the initial report, the network or application is tested again in a re-testing phase to ensure that all identified issues have been addressed.

  • Final Report

    After the re-testing, a final report is provided to the client, including the issues with their respective fixes. A Penetration testing badge verifying the security of the network or application is provided to the client.

Pentesting Types

Web Apps + API

It's crucial to protect your web apps and APIs from breaches that could expose valuable data and harm your brand. By identifying potential risks in real-time while your systems are active, you can prevent unauthorized access and maintain a strong reputation in the digital landscape.

Mobile Apps

Discover security vulnerabilities in iOS and Android applications and corresponding back-end components. Eliminate the threats of code tampering and insecure data storage, communication, and authentication. Used to detect vulnerabilities during runtime tests and release phases.

External & Internal Network

Identify security vulnerabilities in external networks and systems. This includes test cases for encrypted transport protocols, SSL certificate scoping issues, and use of administrative services. Internal penetration testing finds weaknesses in traditional on-premises environments.

Frequently asked questions

Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, is a proactive cybersecurity measure aimed at identifying internal and external vulnerabilities of a software application or system. It involves simulating real-world attacks in a controlled environment to identify weaknesses and provide actionable findings for developers to fix.
Penetration testing is important because it helps organizations identify and mitigate security risks before they can be exploited by attackers. It provides an accurate and comprehensive assessment of risks and identifies complex, multivector vulnerabilities of systems based on exploitation risk in a simulated environment.
There are several types of penetration testing services available, including web application and API testing, mobile application testing, external and internal network testing. Each type of testing is designed to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in different areas of a system or application.
Penetration testing involves simulating real-world attacks in a controlled environment to identify weaknesses and provide actionable findings for developers to fix. The process typically involves four steps: getting a quote, receiving a penetration testing report, performing remediation, and receiving certification.
The cost of penetration testing varies depending on the size and complexity of the system or application being tested.
Penetration testing should be performed regularly to ensure that systems and applications are secure. The frequency of testing depends on a variety of factors, such as the size and complexity of the system or application, the level of risk involved, and the regulatory requirements.
After penetration testing is completed, the organization will receive a report that specifies the detected vulnerabilities with recommendations for fixing them. Once the fixes have been introduced, the provider will perform a remediation check, and the organization will receive certification. The audit will also be attached to the project's page on various platforms.
