Here's a book:

Here's a PDF from Cisco:

Here's a brief article:

There are a number of ways to do penetration testing depending on your setup. One simple way is to put a port scanner on the "outside" of your Cisco box, turn up logging and fire away. There are companies that do penetration testing that will charge a lot of money.

But diligent attention to #1 and #2 in your list will / should take care of #3

Good luck,
Steve
