I am fresh out of the university straight into QA/Testing. We are going through Regression testing for a web portal these days.
I have been asked to find the security breaches in the login systems of the portal. Can anybody help me with this? Second task for me is to find the consistency of the template. How do i do that? Please help!!!!
Don't mean to offend you, but it shouldn't go against your ethics. Here, we have an entire group that does nothing but security testing. The goal of that group is to ensure no one else can hack into the system; this means they have specialized training in how to do it themselves.
Riffat, security testing is a very specialized and large field which involves much more than just basic authorization/authentication technique. My suggestion is that you post in the security testing forum and look for some good training in your region.
I understand. I am not offended, either. It would take more than questioning my views to offend me.
However, a stranger saying "I have been asked to find the security breaches in the login systems of the portal." and asking how to do it might be as ethical as some stranger in a trenchcoat saying "I have been asked to find the security breaches in the local elementary school." I would more likely tell them no than I would tell them yes.
I don't mind helping others, I just do not want to help them do something that might harm others. (Plus, I would not likely be able to help him hack in anyway.. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] )
if you are asking for security testing and for login page...then first create all possible test cases and think on that putting yourself in the shoes of outside intruder...tell us about what is your background are you technically sound and are you easy with SQL then try to get material on sql injection...that is the main thing which normally used to breach the security....there are more on that and people are suggeted you some...so you have to go through that all...rest all the best
