The penetration testing should focus on the segmentation controls both from outside the entity’s network and from inside the network but outside of the CDE to confirm that they are not able to get through the segmentation controls to access the CDE. For example network testing and/or scanning for open ports to verify no connectivity between in-scope and out-of-scope networks.
