Penalties for Late Submissions - Module Learning Outcomes and Assessment Guidelines

Late submission penalties and guidelines

·Late submission of any item of coursework for each day or part thereof (or for hard copy submission only, working day or part thereof) for up to five days after the published deadline, coursework relating to modules at Levels 0, 4, 5, 6 submitted late (including deferred coursework, but with the exception of referred coursework), will have the numeric grade reduced by 10 grade points until or unless the numeric grade reaches or is 40. Where the numeric grade awarded for the assessment is less than 40, no lateness penalty will be applied.

·Late submission of referred coursework will automatically be awarded a grade of zero (0).

·Coursework (including deferred coursework) submitted later than five days (five working days in the case of hard copy submission) after the published deadline will be awarded a grade of zero (0).

·Where genuine serious adverse circumstances apply, you may apply for an extension to the hand-in date, provided the extension is requested a reasonable period in advance of the deadline.

Please refer to your student handbook for details about the grading schemes used by the School when assessing your work. Guidance on assessment will also be given in the Module Guide.

His 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

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
Work in teams (as leader or member) adapting to changing requirements for effectively communicating the results of a penetration test

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.

Task 2 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 conduct a penetration test against a target system that will be provided to you. You are required to present your findings in a factual manner to convince decision makers of a large corporation on business strategies.  Do not provide a narrative of your intelligence gathering activities in the main report. You should include this in an appendix. You can use the VPN for undertaking this activity.

You are expected to unify your work into one cohesive portfolio report. The final portfolio report is an academic report and as such the following report structure is expected:
1.Task 1 (50%)
2.Task 2 (50%)
3.References: one fused reference list. Do not have a separate reference list for each task of the portfolio,

You are required to submit the final portfolio report via Canvas in a PDF format using your student ID as the file name. This is imperative as the naming template will be used for corroborating the work in your reports with the log files your PenTest activities will generate.

Please see the overall grade description on the last page of this document and the rubric published on Canvas.

·For undergraduate modules, a score above 40% represent a pass performance at honours level.
·For postgraduate modules, a score of 50% or above represents a pass mark.
·Modules may have several components of assessment and may require a pass in all elements. For further details, please consult the relevant Module Guide or ask the Module Leader.

Reasonably clear definitions of ‘the different phases of a PenTest but underdeveloped arguments regarding statutory and ethical considerations of the penetration tester, and no comparison between different methodologies. Very limited discussion that does not demonstrate critical thinking. Basic SOP and basic decision-making tree.Informative critical comparison of different methodologies using a table.

Appropriate discussion with supporting evidence on the statutory and ethical considerations of a penetration tester. Clear understanding of the different penetration testing phases. SOP is reasonable, offering advice regarding inputs and outputs in each activity and on the appropriate usage of tools. Complete decision-making tree but may contain some errors.
