Security Tests are carried out in order to detect problems that may arise due to malicious use of software systems. The importance and priority of security tests are increasing day by day especially with digitalization, thus making it mandatory for many sectors.
Why Security Testing?
Security is seen as a comprehensive issue that needs to be evaluated separately for each system layer. Possible vulnerabilities at the Network, System, or Application level can pave the way for unwanted use of the system.
When application security is considered, Secure Coding, Static Application Security Testing, Dynamic Application Security Testing and Penetration Testing are the control steps that can be performed respectively. In this process, while tools are used extensively for static and dynamic tests, manual testing efforts are required for secure coding and penetration.

What is Vulnerability Assessment?
Vulnerability Assessment is a test approach to identify vulnerabilities in a system. The aim is to take the current general security situation of the system.
Tools are mostly used for assessment. However, testers are needed to carry out advanced controls and differentiate the findings discovered by the tools that can create a real security problem.
What is Penetration Testing?
After vulnerabilities and logic errors are detected in the system, penetration testing is carried out in order to prevent the exploitation of these vulnerabilities by malicious people and to make the systems safer.
Penetration tests can be carried out for three different targets such as Internal Network, External Network and Web Application Testing.
In addition, Penetration Tests have three groups according to the test design technique.
Black Box Tests are performed without any knowledge of the systems to be tested. Since it takes time to collect information and design tests, it is the longest test technique to perform. In addition, since there is no information about the internal structure, it is possible to cause harm to the system.
White Box Tests are carried out with comprehensive information about the internal structure of the system. Since the information collection time will decrease, it takes a very short time and controls can be performed in high detail. It is unlikely to cause harm.
Gray Box Tests are carried out with partial knowledge about the system structure. It offers a solution between black box and white box techniques in terms of detail and duration since there is partial knowledge about the system.
