[OWASP-TESTING] Pen Test Check List

Here's a couple ideas for an Access Control (aka Authorization) section:

1) Account Separation - Ensure that one user cannot access another user's
2) Privilege Escalation - Ensure that users cannot manipulate the system to
perform functions or access resources beyond their role.
3) Least Privilege - Ensure that roles are limited to the resources and
functions they need.

Where would we put the instructions for how to test these things?

I made a start...I will continue after dinner and hopefully have a list for
review later tonight.

I think its inline with Glyns list etc

I think we need to scope this as

Internet Pen Test Only
Check List Format (ie simple)

I think we can get a first draft out easily. We should then align the layout
with the OASIS Thesaurus of issues that should be complete after the next
OASIS meeting on March 23rd.
