Web Application Penetration Test Formats

We understand that our clients need applications tested to meet a variety of different goals, so we are flexible in how we get the job done. We can take a few different approaches to penetration testing your web applications. Here are the most common ones:
Gray_Box_Test
web_app_pentest

Gray Box Test

This is the most common form of an application penetration test and is also what most organizations need if they are meeting an industry standard for annual testing. To complete your gray box test, we'll need access to the application and a couple of test user accounts for each main role.

white_box_test

Collaborative Test

Sometimes this is called a white-box or crystal-box test,  or a slight variation is called a hackathon test. This test format is the best option for teams who also want to use the penetration test as a learning experience. Our consultants will conduct the test with your developers or your internal application security team. This will include in-depth sessions to explain and show our test procedures. It will often include collaborative sessions of reviewing source code to trace specific application behavior and look for vulnerabilities.

SDLC Test

This is penetration testing designed to run in line with your software development lifecycle (SDLC). You want SDLC testing when you are trying to extend the capacity of your internal testing team in order to establish application penetration testing routines as part of your regular release process. SDLC testing is typically conducted like a gray box test, except with scope limited by the release. We'll even open issues in your bug tracking system (e.g. Jira) for you.

Our prepaid testing credits are a great option for managing your SDLC-based testing needs.

Authenticated DAST Scan

This is not a penetration test because it is mostly automated, but it is a type of web application assessment. Authenticated DAST (or Dynamic Application Security Testing) scans are a common requirement for compliance reasons in certain industries. Our Web Scout product will meet your needs if you have this types of requirement.

Scoping

We estimate the effort to test a web application by its complexity.  We also look for opportunities to lower the effort, such as combining the testing of multiple applications, reduced effort from frequent tests of the same application (e.g. SDLC testing).

Gray Box Test

A gray box web application penetration test is a time-boxed test that is sized according to the complexity of the application. The following chart will give you some guidance on what to expect for this type of test:

Size Scope Price-range
Small Small, single purpose application. Up to five pages of dynamic content. $4,800 - $7,200
Average Average application, multiple roles, up to 50 pages of dynamic content. $12,000 - $19,200
Large Complex multi-functional or flagship applications with multiple roles $31,200 +
Other

Scoping and rates for test formats other than Gray Box will depend a lot on your specific requirements. The chart below will provide you with some guidance, but we recommend scheduling a scoping call with one of our consultants.

Type Scope Price
Collaborative Days of consulting effort Typically the high-end of Gray Box price range
SDLC Test Days of consulting effort Varies by application, and release complexity & frequency
