What is Mobile Application Security Testing?

Mobile Application Security Testing/Assessment involves testing mobile apps through ways in which a malicious attacker would choose to exploit the existing security weaknesses of your app. The assessment can help you identify the production readiness of your mobile application.

ValueMentor is a CREST Penetration Testing Service Provider in the India for Mobile Application Security Testing/ Assessment. We help you evaluate the production readiness of mobile applications.

Today’s organizations use mobile applications extensively for a seamless business experience for their workplace and customers. It can be banking applications, healthcare platforms, m-commerce applications and other business applications. Identifying and mitigating the security risks of these mobile apps are paramount for protecting the workforce and customers.

Methodology For Mobile App Security Testing

Gather Mobile App Information

Our team gathers information about the application, use cases, business logic and other relevant information about the mobile application.

Threat Modelling

Create a threat profile of the application by listing all possible risks and associated threats. It enables testers to perform tailor-made test plans to simulate the attacks that may result in assessing real risks instead of the generic vulnerabilities.

Application Mapping

Identify the application details and map them to various aspects of the threat profile created. Some variables include (a) Key chains, brute-force attacks, parameter tampering (b) Malicious input, fuzzing (c) SQLite database password fields, configuration file encryption (d) Session IDs, time lockouts (e) Error and exception handling (f) Logs, access control to logs.

Client Side Attack Simulation

Key focus areas of client-side attack simulation are (a) Interaction with the platform (b) Local storage (c) use of encryption (d) binary & final analysis (e) insecure API calls and (f) files with adequate access controls.

Network Layer Attack Simulation

Network Layer Attack Simulation is an integral part of Mobile Security Services. It includes communication channel attacks, capturing network traffic and assessing transport layer protection.

Back-end / Server side attack simulation

Back-ends such as web services and API provides the application with its intended functionality. Our Mobile Security Testing team simulates attacks on web services & APIs consumed by the mobile application.

Reporting & Re-tests

We will provide reports that detail the risks identified in the mobile application. The Mobile Application Security Testing Report includes recommendations for remediation and risk rating.
Re-tests get performed to validate the closure of vulnerabilities.

Mobile Penetration Testing Benefits

Reduce Mobile Application breaches

Mobile applications are becoming a favourite choice for attackers as they are easily accessible. Mobile Application Security Testing reduces the risk of mobile app breaches by detecting the mobile application weaknesses early and remediating them before an attacker finds them.

Scale the business with secure mobile apps

Mobile application usage continues to increase and outpaces these web applications. Secure mobile applications have a better chance of gaining customer trust and loyalty. Mobile Application Penetration Testing provides extra support for the scalability of your business.

Meet Compliance Requirements

In today’s regulated environment, compliance with regulations and standards such as PCI DSS, OWASP, GDPR, HIPAA, NIST, RBI CSF, SAMA CSFNESA, and many other standards mandates Mobile App Security Testing as a critical requirement.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. What is Mobile App Security Assessment?2022-11-25T04:00:33+00:00

A mobile app security assessment points to a comprehensive series of tests performed on an application to discover potential loopholes or existing vulnerabilities. A team of qualified security experts conducts the test or even can go fully automated. The following assessment report includes caught vulnerabilities, severity levels, business impact, security levels, code location and compliance-related check details.

2. Why is mobile app security essential in mobile app development?2022-11-25T04:02:08+00:00

Considering the present threat landscape and the criticality of information shared over multiple applications, organizations should guarantee that their applications are safe from vulnerabilities, outside threats, and malicious attacks. If the security faults go undetected or untested in the early stages of app development, your application could be in close proximity to a data breach. The condition would build havoc in terms of monetary loss and business reputation.

3. What are the common security threats in mobile applications?2022-11-25T04:03:18+00:00

Commonly found mobile app security threats include: –

  • Weak server-side controls
  • Insecure data storage
  • Insufficient transport layer protection
  • Client-side injection
  • Security misconfiguration
  • Sensitive data exposure
  • Inadequate logging & monitoring
