Is it allowed to run penetration testing against my Droplet?

I am a nube to setting up Ubuntu, and I want to be sure that I setup a well-protected host.

It is allowed by Digital Ocean to run something like Metasploit penetration testing against my Droplet to help me ensure that I’m doing a reasonable job of configuring my firewall, and that I actually have the protection I think I have?
