Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Mobile applications offer improved experiences for organizations and their users. Both parties can be additionally protected by this assessment of your application’s security posture.

What Happens During a Mobile Application Penetration Test?

No matter if it’s iOS or Android, a mobile application penetration test analyzes the security perimeters of your mobile application and the related application program interfaces (APIs), providing insight into any source code vulnerabilities, as well as possible attack vectors.

More Thorough API Coverage

The API used by your mobile application may differ from the API used by your web application. Sometimes, testing of this secondary API may be an afterthought, resulting in unexpected vulnerabilities that could become the main vector to attack your supporting infrastructure. 

Schellman’s Mobile Application Penetration Testing Methodology

We use the OWASP Mobile Application Security Testing Guide (MASTG) to support mobile penetration testing. The MASTG provides a comprehensive and systematic approach to testing the security of mobile applications and covers various security aspects, including secure data storage, network communication, code execution, and user authentication, among others. It also includes recommended testing techniques and tools, as well as guidelines for reporting and documenting the results of security testing.
