Security Testing

Security testing is a process intended to reveal flaws in the security mechanisms of an information system that protect data and maintain functionality as intended.

Security testing is an integral part of software testing, which is used to discover the weaknesses, risks, or threats in the software application and also help us to stop the nasty attack from the outsiders and make sure the security of our software applications.

The primary objective of security testing is to find all the potential ambiguities and vulnerabilities of the application so that the software does not stop working. If we perform security testing, then it helps us to identify all the possible security threats and also help the programmer to fix those errors.

Availability

In this, the data must be retained by an official person, and they also guarantee that the data and statement services will be ready to use whenever we need it.

Integrity

The integrity systems regularly use some of the similar fundamental approaches as confidentiality structures. Still, they generally include the data for the communication to create the source of an algorithmic check rather than encrypting all of the communication. And also verify that correct data is conveyed from one application to another.

Authorization

It is the process of defining that a client is permitted to perform an action and also receive the services. The example of authorization is Access control.

Confidentiality

It is a security process that protracts the leak of the data from the outsider's because it is the only way where we can make sure the security of our data.

Authentication

The authentication process comprises confirming the individuality of a person, tracing the source of a product that is necessary to allow access to the private information or the system.
