As a intern I was offered internship in assurance unit at TCS. I was employed in the
unit of TCS that is Test Center of Excellence (TCoE). I was assigned the responsibility
of security testing. I was assigned a mentor whose was a dedicated security tester.
Large organization possess a very good working environment hence forth being
working for security as a main field within testing was a great opportunity.
During the tenure I learnt about designing test plan, procedures, test cases, various
aspects of security in software applications. I did hands on on several automated
software testing tools such as Burpsuite, Zed attack proxy(ZAP), WebGoat, Webscrab
TCS has been working with Income tax department of India for all the software
requirements of organization hence an Income Tax Business Application (ITBA) for
android platform designed and developed by TCS was then ongoing project that came
into testing to the team. Hence I got a chance to work on testing of android application.
I designed test cases, checklist and test plan for android testing. Being familiar with
android applications and its pro and cons I implemented all my knowledge in designing
cases For which I was complemented by my lead as she was pretty much impressed by
my work. I received further instructions and worked upon the same into depth.
Up till now I have been able to gain a lot of knowledge in security testing working on
certain aspects such as injection, session management authentication, verification and
validation, cross site scripting, cross site request forgery and certain others.
I worked upon several automation testing tools and security aspects. Hands on the
tools have made me confident and provided me valuable experience that would count
to be as beneficial in future.
