The correct answer is C.

OBJ-1.2: Written authorization documents help control the amount of liability incurred by the penetration tester. You must ensure you have the correct authorization in place before beginning your engagement. You ALWAYS need written authorization from your client. If the client uses a third-party service provider, then you may need to also get proper authorization from them in writing too. During your engagement planning, you should contact the third-party service provider to determine if written consent is required. In the case of Amazon, there are a handful of services that do not require prior authorization before conducting a penetration test on behalf of your client. DoS and DDoS attacks and simulations do require written authorization from both your client and Amazon. If you do not have this, you could be held liable for any negative consequences to Amazon and its client’s servers or even be charged with criminal computer hacking.
