Security testing is the process of disposing the presence of security weaknesses. It reveals security errors in an application, determines whether confidential data can be accessed and whether users can perform tasks which they aren’t authorised for.

Security Testing

Security testing is determining how software reacts in the presence of a malicious attack.


The six basic security concepts that need to be covered by security testing are:

  • Confidentiality
  • Integrity
  • Authentication
  • Availability
  • Authorisation
  • Non-repudiation
