Chris, I do want to make it clear that my response really wasn't directed at you specifically. I respect you a great deal, and that was just kind of a random trigger for getting on my soap box. I see a lot of people talking about being covert and stealthy simple because that's how they see an ideal attack, not because it's actually practical or beneficial to either party in the context of a professional service.
Dynamik, it's all good. I think we were actually complementing each others comments now. I'm saying don't go running through like a grain thresher through a field, you're saying don't take 3 months to do the test.
I just have confidence issues. Probably because I keep interviewing for Security based jobs, and end up not getting hired. But that's been par for the course of my carrier over the last 4 years. Interview, interview, interview. Have things said (You're our top choice, the job is yours, we don't want you for this job, but we have another we want you to do, etc), but end up getting called by HR / Head Hunter and told they went with someone else (or they drag their feet for 3 months).
