The Penetration Test (PENTEST) is defined as finding ways to access resources in excess to prior knowledge of authentication tokens or documented clearance
The PENTEST process vary from the basic vulnerability assessment for one fundamental detail: each failure detected on the target is actually exploited at its maximum in order to understand the impact in its entirety.
A PENTESTER is an attacker with a legal permission to do so bearing the responsibility to report all findings to the Customer.
This is a very similar situation to those medieval sieges, where the barbarians stood outside the walls and unearthed a breach to enter and loot the castle. PENTEST allows you to check the breaches before the siege.
