Mitnick is a good resource for review if you don't have personal experience
with it.

...Google his work on Sprint phones and Nortel switches and the Las Vegas
phone system (he was never caught, but did testify about it).

Subject: Penetration Testing - Human Factor

As a thorough sceptic Id like to conclude in most cases of a 
TRUE hacking incident social engineering has been a factor of 
success for the malicious user attacking a system.
    For quite a while now I have been compiling methodology 
on the assessment of the weak human security link which can 
be exploited through social engineering. Has anyone got any 
thoughts they would like to share or guidelines to the audit 
of the human factor when security is concerned?

Any information is much apreciated.


Many Thanks,
Mario A. Spinthiras
