Definition Edit

Remote access testing

[assess]]es remote access methods for vulnerabilities, and covers technologies such as terminal servers, VPNs, secure shell (SSH) tunnels, remote desktop applications, and dial-up modems. This testing is intended to discover alternative methods of entry into the network that circumvent perimeter defenses.[1]

Overview Edit

Remote access testing is often conducted as part of penetration testing, but can also be performed separately to better focus on remote access implementations.[2]
