    Exact difference between security and penetration

    Hi all,

    I know, what is security and penetration testing.. but quite confused what is exact difference between security and penetration ? and i feel both are quite similar.

    if anybody very clear on this, can you explain me with example as earliest.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Exact difference between security and penetration

    To give a short answer: Security is the umbrella goal, i.e. in order to produce secure software/network/environments you conduct security testing.
    Penetration testing is a subset of security testing, i.e. it's a category / method that will help you accomplish your goal, so are Secure Coding Practices, Threat Modeling, Fuzzing, Static Analysis, Dynamic Analysis, etc.
