RE: Infrastructure Testing for Web Applications

Hello Paul,

When you say 'infrastructure testing', do you refer to testing only
platform-specific issues, such as problems in Microsoft IIS, Apache,
etc..? or are you referring to testing your web application for
application-layer issues (e.g. XSS, SQL Injection, etc.)?

As a starting point, you can check out the following whitepaper:

("Methodologies and Tools for Web Application Security Assessment")

Good luck with the assessment,

Good evening all,

We are looking at doing infrastructure testing for our company's web
applications, and was wondering what sort of methodologies / tools do
you all use to assist yourselves in this process?

Best regards,
Paul J.
