    Abstract

    Physical penetration testing plays an important role in assuring a company that the security policies are properly enforced and that the security awareness of the employees is on the appropriate level. In physical penetration tests the tester physically enters restricted locations and directly interacts with the employees to convince them to break a policy or provide credentials. The physical access and the direct interaction with the employees complicate the execution of the tests and have ethical, legal and safety implications
