Android Kiosk Browser Lock down Security Testing Checklist

What is Kiosk Browser Lockdown?
In simple words, if you want to restrict the usability of the device that you are giving to your employee/customer's hand, you can use kiosk browser lockdown facility to make that device single purpose used.

Generally, all finance companies use that at their branches when the customer comes to their branch and any kind of help and representative approaches them with a tablet which has that bank/company's application running on it.

Network Security VAPT Checklist

Hi Guys, there are very few technical network security assessment checklist. So I thought to share my own on this. Have a look and enjoy. Lets talk about the scope first. If you are given a 1000 machines to perform VAPT, then here is your scope. Single machine can have 65535 ports open. Any single port can deploy any service software from the world. For example FTP can be run on smartftp, pureftpd etc.. Any single FTP software version (for example pureftpd 1.0.22) can have number of vulnerabilities available. So if you multiply all of these, then it is impossible for any auditor to go ahead and probe all ports manually and find services manually. Even if he/she is able to do it, it is impossible to check all vulnerabilities that are pertaining to a single port of a single machine. Hence we have to rely on scanners such as nexpose, nessus, openvas, coreimpact etc. Here are some quick tools and test cases that one can perform on commonly found ports in the network pentest.
