Fringe Company creates and hosts several web applications for schools and its students. In order to verify the security of data stored in these systems, such as personal information, grades, conversation reports etc., Fringe requested a penetration test to be executed on one of the online platforms.
While executing the penetration test I tested not only the application itself, but also verified the security measures taken by the hosting company to prevent data-loss, such as up to date operating systems,correct configuration of Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems etc.
I have extensively used tools available within Kali Linux in order to execute the penetration test.
Based on the penetration test report, Fringe company was able to improve the security of their application as well as their hosting platform.
