Good day to all,

There is a sample document on the www.professionalsecuritytesters.org that
you can use to create your own.  It has good tips and include limitation of
liability.

You can get it at:
http://www.professionalsecuritytesters.com/Documents/getoutofjail/getoutofja
il.doc 

Do take care

Clement

Hi Michael,

I typically refer to the following document from the SANS Policy  
resources:

http://www.sans.org/resources/policies/Audit_Policy.doc

I modify this for internal permission slip purposes (i.e. the network  
security group has permission to do X, Y, Z on the network) and for  
external engagements as well.

I'd be very interested in hearing people's thoughts/comments.

Thank You,

Paul

I'd be very much interested in whether there is a consensus
document used by those performing vulnerability assessments
that specifically authorizes pen testing which is sufficiently
robust to protect the consultant from civil and criminal
action.

Would anyone care to share, comment, etc.?  Thanks in advance.
