  1. Penetration testing is a simulated cyberattack against a computer or network that checks for exploitable vulnerabilities. Pen tests can involve attempting to breach application systems, APIs, servers, inputs, and code injection attacks to reveal vulnerabilities. In a well-written, highly-detailed research paper, discuss the following:
    • What is penetration testing
    • Testing Stages
    • Testing Methods
    • Testing, web applications and firewalls

    Your paper should meet the following requirements:

    • Be approximately 4-6 pages in length, not including the required cover page and reference page. (Remember, APA is double spaced)
    • Follow APA 7 guidelines. Your paper should include an introduction, a body with fully developed content, and a conclusion.
    • Support your answers with the readings from the course and at least two scholarly journal articles to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook. The UC Library is a great place to find resources.
    • For every website that you include as a Reference, you must have at least TWO sources found from the University Library or Google Scholar.
    • Be clear and well-written, concise, and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. You are being graded in part on the quality of your writing.
