RE: Blind penetration testing

Two suggestions:

1) One thing I have found useful in identifying address blocks is (in the
US) ARIN.  If you do a whois at the ARIN site for the company name, it will
tell you what address space has been SWIP'd out to them.

2) Also, if they have an Autonomous System Number, and are running BGP --
that is another way to find out address space, who their providers are, etc.
Telnet into route-views.oregon-ix.net (no username/password needed), and do
a "show ip bgp | in <AS #>.

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?
