Penetration testers should check whether the WAF reliably cloaks system information in order to make attacks on the infrastructure less likely in the first place Web Application Firewalls (WAFs). If penetration testers are not only looking for a security snap shot, but want to help their customers in creating sustainable security, they should always include the WAF’s administration into their assessment.
