RE: Blind penetration testing

You are entering risky territory, IMO.  You open yourself up to liability by
potentially scanning/hacking another companies resources.  I would put this
engagement into multiple phases.

Phase 1: Blind *identification* of companies resources (DIG, nslookup,
whois, d&b, etc.)

After Phase 1 is complete, you go back to the company with your findings.
They then check off the ip's, hosts, domains, locations, etc. that they
authorize you to assess along with an agreement that has been reviewed by
both sides.

Phase 2: Actual testing of authorized resources.

Im about to start work on a completely blind penetraton test for a client.
The only information i have been given is the company name. From this i can
get their corporate web site and from there do a DIG for more company info
and address ranges
after which i can start my reconnaissance.
Question, can anyone out there offer any tips based on this scenario?
