I think this gives a good visual representation of the use of many
tools. I don't necessarily think introducing new students to all the
tools is the best way to formalize them into the art of penetration
testing.

Are you stressing of equal importance to the new pentester the value of
asking the right questions so they can use the right tools? Or is the
goal to have things as repeatable as possible or other...?

Outside of philosophy, I had just a few notes to add while I can:

Port 80/http services
        - add httprint.
Terminal Services/3389
        - add TSGrinder 
        http://www.blackhat.com/presentations/bh-u...s-03-mullen.pdf
        tsgrinder-2.03
SSH
        - add scanssh 
        - also add review of hostkey files, for each user on the machine
to see what other         machines the end user connects to.

Also, I didn't see anything for microsoft sql servers in your list, nor
did I see the the viewing of web applications or anything for mysql.

I would also add in a section for every web application server along
with default usernames and configurations to check out for each
application server.

I saw allot of items for automated sql scanners, but did not see any
proxy tools , or documentation to guide the pentester into the strange
waters of web application testing.

You could also add once gain some level of access to a computer to do
x,y,z (checking permissions etc).

Hi Toggmeister,,

I've done something a bit similar, it has some things that yours 
doesn't have but I think yours is more complete. I will send it to 
you, and if you want to post it or take some ideas from it, be my 
guest

Hi,

   I've been pen testing for a few months now and find that with all
the tools out there and which tool to use on what I lose track.  We also
have new joiners to our organisation and to help with that I've STARTED
to put together a help guide to a basic pen test, including what
requirements are need for the test, tools to use on what, syntax, links
to their sites etc..  I'm basically after:


Constructive Feedback

Helpful tips and pointers:

   Tools and Syntax for other ports not listed

   (I've done about 25 services so far)

   Other Suggestions


Its available here:


http://www.vulnerabilityassessment.co.uk/Penetration%20Test.html


Its very busy, but I'm trying to be as verbose as possible to 
provide as much info as possible. Basically a one-stop shop for a 
newbie


I've used freemind (thanks for the pointer nebs) 
http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

to generate this and I'm hoping may prove useful and a good reminder
when I forget.


Hope this helps. TIA
