Necessary Of Pentesting In Mobile Application Blog Article

What Is Mobile Penetration Testing

Both business and public organizations today are using mobile apps in new and compelling ways, from banking applications to healthcare platforms. Managing security risk is a growing challenge on these platforms, with new vulnerabilities found every day. Is your mobile app safe from attackers? Rhino Security Labs offers top-tier mobile app penetration testing services, providing a holistic risk assessment to your mobile application. With industry-leading researchers and security engineers in both iPhone and Android, we provide deep dive testing into local, on-device security issues, back-end web services, and the API’s which connect them.

Application Penetration Testing In A Nutshell

Mobile application Penetration test is an Authorized and simulated hacking attempt against a mobile application which might be of Android or windows and ios.The purpose of this test is to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in an application and the way it interacts and transfer data to other devices. Mobile device security has been becoming an emerging field of research, and mobile device security focuses on Mobile Device Management (MDM), device-level security, storage security, transport layer security, and mobile device application security. A penetration test is a professional security method to emulate a threat, acting on the attack surface with one or more attack vectors that comprise an “attack scenario.”

Performing Penetration Testing

Mapping the application : At first take the victim's mobile and run the application using Emulators and proxies.This will provide information about application and its interaction with the backend.Then conduct tests if any content was available to unauthorized users.
• Later, attack the victim’s mobile application by attacking the code directly via network. Many applications take input from the backend and modify their behavior and therefore, affect the functionality of the application.
• Finally, examine the results to determine the functionality and potentiality of the application and the technology used.Then access the application to detect the vulnerabilities and exploit them.

What To Expect In Our Mobile Pentesting Service

Deep Support for both iOS and Android Platforms
With deep experience in both iOS and Android penetration testing, we understand the unique security challenges and vulnerabilities with each mobile architecture. This expertise allows us to customize assessments to specific concerns, such as reverse-engineering an iOS app or malware threats to an Android app.
Each mobile security assessment simulates multiple attack vectors and risks, including insecure storage, stolen device risk, mobile malware attacks, and both authenticated/unauthenticated app users. Apps residing on in-house mobile devices? We provide custom scenarios to map enterprise conditions as well.

Static, Dynamic, and Source Code Pentesting
Integrating both static and dynamic analysis, our security experts test each mobile app at-rest and during runtime to identify all vulnerabilities. This deep-dive methodology also targets local vulnerabilities as well, such as insecure storage of credentials, Android backups including sensitive app data, etc. While our iOS/Android experts can decompile or reverse-engineering the apps themselves, more vulnerabilities can be identified through a full source code review of the application. By reviewing the app source code during the penetration test, even deeply buried vulnerabilities can be identified and mitigated.

Conclusion

Mobile application penetration testing is an up and coming security testing need that has recently obtained more attention, with the introduction of the Android, iPhone, and iPad platforms among others. The mobile application market is expected to reach a size of $9 billion by the end of 20111 with the growing consumer demand for smartphone applications, including those for banking and trading. Hence, it is first and foremost important to secure applications these days to protect privacy of the user.
