Red团队's physical penetration testing methodology is comprised of several phases. Each penetration test is conducted consistently using globally accepted and industry-standard frameworks. 至少, the Red团队's physical penetration tests underlying framework is based on the NIST Special Publication 800 Series guidance and OSSTMM.
Red团队's expert pentesters will carefully examine both your physical surroundings and internal environment to identify potential security vulnerabilities. We'll also spot any potential weaknesses that may exist in your established security controls so you can employ additional countermeasures.
The steps of a penetration test performed by Red团队安全 on your physical location are pretty straightforward. We take a meticulous approach to ensure nothing is overlooked. Every security detail is accounted for - you can be certain attackers will be exploring everything from your locks to peeping in your windows. They're not above dumpster diving for information that can help them achieve their malicious goals. We get into an attacker's mindset as we cover all angles throughout our penetration testing phases using the following steps in our methodology.
As with other types of penetration testing, the first phase in a physical penetration test is to focus on gathering as much information as possible about the target locations. This Is one of the most critical steps in our pen testing processes because it helps us to examine your organization from the perspective of a "bad guy" and enables us to see everything an attacker would be by utilizing public tools, 比如谷歌Earth, 社交媒体, 和工作委员会. 使用这种方法, it is usually possible to learn a great deal about the target's (in this case, your facility's) surroundings and environment.
Once we've gathered knowledge and intel about your facility, we turn our eye to a step we call Open Source Intelligence (OSINT). Open Source Intelligence gathering can be quite telling about a target, 它的人民, and specifics about the physical environment. To accomplish this step, we utilize a different set of public tools, including social networks 和工作委员会, 举两个例子.
The depth of this phase will vary based on the specific engagement. 在某些情况下, the client will provide much of the information needed to create the Red团队 Operations Plan (i.e., 供应商使用, photographs of the locations, 平面布置图, 前台程序, 着装规范, 徽章照片, security systems in place).
The Active Reconnaissance phase of physical penetration testing involves gathering information that can be found offline. Depending on the engagement, Red团队 may engage in 社会工程 activities to obtain information not publicly found or learn details that are impossible to find online.
This phase will also involve Covert Observation, 访问每个位置, and taking photos that help to document where we can bypass existing barriers or gain access to unsecured ones. We will also observe 着装规范, identify where the staff takes breaks, any doors that may be left open, physical security controls like security cameras and equipment, security guard behavior, and 前台程序. Access badges may also be cloned. This information will be used to establish the plan of attack.
Intelligence gathered through the previous steps is combined into a Red 团队 Operations Plan (RTOP). The RTOP includes creating a Pretext (the story being used if 社会工程 techniques are being leveraged), 目标和目标, estimated timings for execution, key information learned about the locations, and the equipment that may be needed. Once the plan is approved, equipment will be prepared, and the "get out of jail" letter will be printed in preparation for execution.
This is where the team executes the attack that was outlined in the Red团队 Operations Plan (RTOP). This may include leveraging a copied access card, tailgating into a location, bypassing door locks and security alarms, leveraging 社会工程 practices or other agreed-upon methods to accomplish the goal in each location. Different actions may be taken at the same location at different times of the day. Once Red团队安全 gains access to a location, the agreed-upon post-exploitation activities are executed, and 证据 is gathered.
By combining the results of the information gathering, OSINT, attack planning/pretexting, and execution into a comprehensive report that includes a summary of the steps taken, 证据, 观察, 和建议, a plan can be developed from this report to reduce any risks going forward.
In order to perform a comprehensive real-world assessment, Red团队安全's penetration testers utilize commercial tools, internally developed tools, and the same tools that bad actors use on each physical penetration test. 再一次, our intent is to assess security by simulating a real-world attack, and we leverage the many tools at our disposal to effectively carry out that task.
When planning your cybersecurity and security testing strategies, while securing your tech is vital, it's important to think beyond computer systems, 恶意软件攻击, 防火墙, 无线网络, web applications, mobile applications, and other digital security weaknesses. Ensuring that your physical security is the best it can be is an essential part of increasing security awareness and improving your security posture.
Red团队安全's expert staff is highly skilled at performing physical pen tests. Our robust processes will ensure your facility's physical security is intact. Red团队安全's security professionals will work diligently to identify any potential vulnerabilities within your organization's walls to make certain everyone working or associated with your organization isn't inadvertently falling for classic 社会工程 ruses or giving out sensitive information or unpublished data or materials.
