External  - from a remote device
Internal - from a device inside your network perimeter
These are both usually passive where they find out possible exploits and vulnerabilities, but don't actually exploit them

Pen tests can either know nothing, something or everything about your network (Blackbox, greybox, whitebox)


The goals are to see what vulnerabilities exist so that you can mitigate against them
