Red teams refer to the “ethical hackers” who assist test an enterprise’s defenses by identifying vulnerabilities and launching attacks in a controlled environment. Red teams are opposed by defenders called blue teams, and both parties work together to provide a comprehensive picture of organizational security readiness.

In the context of information security, red team security testing is best conceived as “ethical hacking.” An independent security team (the red team) poses as an attacker in order to gauge vulnerabilities and risk within a controlled environment.
Red team tests are designed to expose vulnerabilities associated not only with security infrastructure (networks, routers, switches, etc.) but also with people and even physical locations.
Amidst a red team test, skilled security operatives typically launch a variety of attacks leveraging the weaknesses within any of these elements. Standard techniques deployed include social engineering, phishing attempts, penetration tests, and tools such as packet sniffers and protocol analyzers.
Before the attacks commence, a red team commences by learning as much as it can about the intended target. Information is collected by identifying the network infrastructure, operating systems in use, vulnerable ports and other factors. Once this reconnaissance is complete, the red team has enough information to develop a network map and a broader idea of the attack paths and techniques that are likely to succeed.
