A penetration test is a simulated cyberattack on a computer system, performed to evaluate the security. The test is primarily performed to identify security vulnerabilities of the system.
The process typically identifies the target systems, then reviews available information and undertakes various means to exploit vulnerabilities. A penetration test target may be a white box or black box, depending on if information about the systems is provided beforehand. Penetration tests can help determining whether a system is vulnerable to an attack, and which defenses the test defeated.
