7COM1068 PenTest Portfolio

This Assignment assesses the following module Learning Outcomes:
Successful students will typically have a knowledge and understanding of:
1.The ethical issues relating to penetration testing and how to incorporate them operationally.
2.A deep and systematic application of the tools, methods and procedures (theoretical and methodological) used within the cyber security arena in the context of a penetration test
3.How to apply advanced and current concepts/issues of computer systems risks, vulnerabilities, threats analysis, and software security in the context of a penetration test
Successful students will typically be able to:
4.Critically analyse and evaluate security techniques used to protect complex heterogeneous environments and apply their findings for offering advice regarding solutions to decision makers
5.Use initiative for autonomously conducting and managing a penetration test, within a complex and unpredictable environment, demonstrating a systematic approach of creatively applying knowledge in unfamiliar contexts for solving problems
6.Work in teams (as leader or member) adapting to changing requirements for effectively communicating the results of a penetration test
Assignment Brief:
This is an individual assessment comprised of two tasks. Task 1 and task 2 carry 50% respectively of the overall portfolio mark. Task 1 will assess your understanding of the statutory and ethical issues surrounding penetration testing and also assess your understanding of the process itself. Task 2 will assess your ability to conduct a full-scale penetration test. You are expected to demonstrate an insight into the implications of the problem introduced in each task by using clear and concise arguments. You will receive formative feedback as part of the module to demonstrate how to be concise in your written work.  Please ensure, in completing these tasks you deploy the techniques you have been taught. If you produce work that is not concise and to the point, then marks may be reduced. The reports should be well written (and word-processed), showing good skills in creativity and design. Sentences should be of an appropriate length and the writing style should be brief but informative. The deadline for the complete Portfolio is the 30.04.2020.
Task 1 – SOP for PenTesting
Task 1 is weighted at 50% of the overall portfolio mark. It is expected that this task of the portfolio will be the equivalent of 2000 words. You are expected to undertake research and critically compare the published penetration testing methodologies. You are expected to comment on the statutory and ethical considerations of a penetration tester. You are expected to design/develop a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), including a decision-making tree, to describe how you will undertake task 2. In particular: intelligence gathering (target profiling), vulnerability identification and analysis, and target exploitation (including post exploitation). An SOP is defined as a set of step-by-step instructions compiled by an organisation to help workers carry out routine operations.

The DRAFT deadline for Task 1 is on the 12.03.2020 by electronic submission via Canvas. Your draft submission will be submitted via a plagiarism detection tool called Turnitin. Turnitin provides you individual feedback by enabling you to see where your work matches similar texts, you will also receive an overall ‘similarity score’ (i.e., a percentage of how much your work matches existing texts). You should use the feedback Turnitin provides to avoid unintentional plagiarism. Additionally, your work may be used as an example for the general feedback session. This session will provide the class with common mistakes and how to avoid them. The final copy of Task 1 should be included in the final Portfolio. If you fail to provide references using the Harvard referencing style as per the University regulations, your work will be marked as superficial and is unlikely to obtain a passing grade.
