I'd be curious to find out what the typical scoping is for a pen test rules of engagement agreement.

Do folks go with a "anything goes" or "no holds barred" approach? What limits on ROE do people normally see in these types of agreements?

Take a look at ISECOM's OSSTMM 2.1 Rules of Engagement:


Someone here mentioned Denial of Service testing, speaking of which:

"6. Distributed Denial of Service testing over the Internet is forbidden." "7. Any form of flood testing where a person, network, system, or service, is overwhelmed from a larger and stronger source is forbidden."
