Security Testing


Security Testing

Security testing checks software to reveal vulnerabilities in security mechanisms and determine whether data and resources are protected from threat actors. It’s a type of non-functional testing focused on whether the software or application is designed and configured correctly.

The test provides evidence on the safety and reliability of software systems and applications, such as not accepting unauthorized inputs. Different types of security testing include vulnerability scanning, security scanning, penetration testing, security audit, and risk assessment.
