Penetration testing : Objectives
In a cyber security context, unlike an audit, whose objective is to validate compliance with a policy or standard, the penetration test measures the risk associated with an information system.

There are three approaches to initial knowledge:
The black box penetration test: These are the conditions closest to an external attack by an unknown person. No information is provided.
Grey box penetration test: Limited information is provided before the test begins, such as information about the operation of the target or user accounts.
White box penetration test: Sometimes referred to as the crystal box, here as much information as possible is provided before the test begins. Thus the functioning of the target is made visible, hence the term white box.
The attacker can either be internal or external. External penetration testing is the most common service, where the consultant operates via an internet connection to simulate anonymous malicious user attacks. Internal penetration testing is the opposite configuration. An attack is simulated from one of the company’s internal networks to measure the risk of internal compromise.
