Information gathering with GPG/PGP keytrusts

Thursday, 1 January 2009, 1:38 PM EST

Often times during some of the initial phases of a pen test, I find myself needing some avenues for delivering client side attacks - with permission and within scope of course! Now, finding appropriate attacks can be a challenge, but to me a larger challenge is the social aspect. How can I convince someone to actually execute my attack? Having a little more information about the "victim" is helpful.
