This week, we’ll examine the threat modeling approach as required for a correct execution of a penetration test. The PTES standard focuses on two key elements of traditional threat modeling – assets and attacker. Each one is respectively broken down into business assets and business processes and the threat communities and their capabilities.
For the PTES assignment this week, create a sample threat modeling profile for a pen test that you would like to conduct for a hypothetical or real world client.
At a minimum, include the following:
- Business Asset Analysis
- Business Process Analysis
- Threat Agents/Community Analysis
- Threat Capability Analysis
