Mobile Application Security Testing
Mobile application penetration testing is a type of security testing that focuses on evaluating the security of mobile applications, including both native and hybrid applications, running on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The purpose of mobile application penetration testing is to identify any vulnerabilities in the application or its associated infrastructure that could be exploited by an attacker, such as attacks that target the application’s underlying operating system or attacks that steal sensitive data from the device.
Web Application Security Testing is critical to protecting both your apps and your organization. Your web applications are likely to be the #1 attack vector for malicious individuals seeking to breach your security. Available to users 24/7, web apps are the easiest target for hackers seeking access to confidential back-end data.
Black box testing is a software testing method in which the tester does not have access to the internal structure or code of the system being tested. Instead, testing is done based on the inputs and outputs, as well as the expected results, without knowledge of the internal workings of the system.
Gray box testing is a software testing method that combines both black box and white box testing techniques. In gray box testing, the tester has a limited understanding of the internal workings of the system being tested, but does not have complete access to the source code or internal structure.
White box testing is a software testing method in which the tester has complete access to the internal structure and code of the system being tested. This method involves designing and executing tests based on an in-depth knowledge of the system's code and internal logic.
Scope of Work
The scope of work refers to the specific tasks, deliverables, and objectives that are agreed upon in a project or engagement. It outlines the extent and boundaries of the work that is to be performed and provides a clear understanding of what is included and excluded from the project.
Intelligence gathering is the process of collecting and analyzing information in order to make informed decisions. This can involve a wide range of activities, including researching public sources, monitoring social media and other online platforms, conducting surveys and interviews, and using technical tools to collect data from various sources.
Application mapping refers to the process of creating a visual representation of an application's architecture and components. This can include a diagram or model of the application's components, data flows, and dependencies, as well as a description of the application's functionality and behavior.
Exploitation refers to the act of taking advantage of a vulnerability or weakness in a system or application to gain unauthorized access, cause harm, or steal sensitive information.
The reporting of mobile application penetration testing is the final stage of the testing process and involves documenting the results of the test and presenting recommendations for addressing any vulnerabilities or weaknesses that were identified.
