A bug tracking system or defect tracking system is a software application that keeps track of reported software bugs in software development projects. A penetration test, colloquially known as a pen test, is an authorized simulated attack on a computer system that looks for security weaknesses. The use of the above two paradigms is very famous in the software development industry. Many researches have managed to expose some problems like manual testing, report generation, etc which the developers might face if these are not used properly. There is a plethora of software’s that offer different kinds of solutions to the problems but somehow they lack one thing or the other. The objective here is to address these problems where the solution is using the bug tracking systems and penetration testing in an architectural manner. This would be done by using an already existing solution and then improvising upon it.
