Active Directory Penetration Test

Securing the Heart of Your Network

Atvik Security’s Active Directory Penetration Testing service provides a comprehensive assessment of your AD environment, identifying vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that could be exploited by malicious actors. By proactively identifying and addressing these weaknesses, you can significantly enhance the security of your network and protect your critical assets.

Why Active Directory Penetration Testing is Crucial

Active Directory (AD) is the backbone of most enterprise networks, managing user authentication, access control, and resource management. However, its central role also makes it a prime target for cybercriminals:

  • Compromising AD can grant attackers extensive control over your network, enabling them to move laterally, escalate privileges, and access sensitive data
  • Misconfigurations and vulnerabilities in AD can be exploited to bypass security controls and gain unauthorized access
  • Attackers often use AD as a stepping stone to launch further attacks, such as ransomware or data exfiltration

Our Active Directory Penetration Testing service helps you identify and mitigate these risks, ensuring the integrity and security of your AD environment.

Our Comprehensive Testing Methodology

Our team of certified AD security experts employs a comprehensive methodology to assess the security of your Active Directory environment:

  1. Reconnaissance and Information Gathering
    • Enumerate AD objects, such as users, groups, computers, and trusts, to identify potential attack surfaces
    • Gather information about AD configurations, group policies, and security controls
  2. Vulnerability Assessment and Scanning
    • Identify known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in AD components, such as domain controllers and member servers
    • Assess the security of AD-integrated services, such as DNS, DHCP, and PKI
  3. Privilege Escalation and Lateral Movement
    • Attempt to escalate privileges by exploiting identified vulnerabilities or misconfigurations
    • Simulate lateral movement techniques, such as pass-the-hash, pass-the-ticket, and GPO abuse, to assess the potential impact of a breach
  4. Domain Dominance and Persistence
    • If domain administrator privileges are obtained, assess the extent of control over the AD environment
    • Evaluate the effectiveness of security controls in detecting and preventing persistent access
  5. Reporting and Remediation Guidance
    • Provide a detailed report of our findings, including identified vulnerabilities, their severity, and potential impact
    • Offer prioritized recommendations for remediation and guidance on implementing AD security best practices

Throughout the testing process, we adhere to industry standards and best practices, such as the MITRE ATT&CK framework for AD, ensuring a thorough and systematic assessment of your AD security posture.
