RE: Blue Team ROE



I would be asking the client if they think a malicious attacker will
abide by policy? How critical is the data? Are there legal ramifications
to public exposure?

Sounds like a good way to hide security issues behind red tape until
it's too late to me...any pen-test with that many restrictions will not
be worth conducting due to accuracy issues - your company will probably
be used simply to cover the customer's ass in the event something does
happen down the track.... i.e. "the results did not indicate any
issues..." without mentioning the restrictions on pen-testing - it could
possibly open you up for nasty legal stuff too...

List,

I wanted to send out a general email asking the members of this list
their professional opinions on being limited during a Blue Team
pen-test. I have a govt customer that is trying deny us the ability to
remove password hashes/files from the system for cracking, write
procedures for every tool/exploit that could be possibly executed, not
allow the loading of any tools/exploits on target systems, things like
that..... Of course my reaction is that my company will not perform the
assessment with such restrictions, what are some thoughts from this list
on this subject?
