Security plays a vital role in the design; development and practical use of the distributed computing environment, for greater availability and access to information in turn imply that distributed systems are more prone to attacks. The need for practical solutions for secure networked system management is becoming increasingly significant. Any cooperative network should be supplied with different security techniques and tools. This paper deals with subjecting a highly secured cooperative network to successive penetration tests.
