2 Introduction With the deployment of application-aware firewalls, UTMs, and DPI engines, the network is becoming more intelligent at the application level With this awareness the network has the ability to implement intelligent security and traffic management policies that are tied to specific application and user characteristics However, with hundreds of thousands of applications and devices on the network and new security threats being discovered on them every day, test teams are struggling to quickly and effectively test their systems - Key requirements for an application aware security testing tool o Unified The test team needs a unified solution that models both the various types of security threats (such as Distributed Denial of Service, protocol fuzzing, anti-virus, DLP, url filtering and published vulnerability detection), and also real world applications o Exhaustive The resulting tests need to be exhaustive and cover the entire attack surface The solution needs to cover thousands of tests that can be run in an automated fashion and yet allow debug and analysis when issues are found o Simplicity Since test teams are pressed for time, they need a solution that does not require an expert user The ability to make the workflow of the test tool integrate with development and issue resolution is very important This is critical to make the issues found actionable and to get them to resolution rapidly Application Identification and Performance Application Identification & Control (white-listing and black-listing) Requirements This test will verify if the target is able to successfully identify applications when they flow through it sequentially o one by one The target has application signatures that are used by the system to examine the traffic pattern flowing through it and to match the observed pattern with the signature The application list must reflect what is seen on customer networks (Business apps like Oracle, Communication apps like and IM, Consumer apps like PP and Gaming etc) Recreate the list of applications that appear on customer networks Run the apps through the target one by one using standard ports and verify if they are detected Run the apps over non-standard ports and see if they were detected Run the apps over SSL/TLS and see if they were detected Run apps that are in the whitelist and verify if they get through successfully Run apps that are blacklisted and see if they are blocked On Standard Ports App List Detection (Yes/No), Whitelist (Pass/), Blacklist (Pass/) Copyright 0, Mu Dynamics, Inc
