Mobile Application Penetration Testing
The Smartphones and tablets are largely used by the consumers and the enterprises at every level,along with the exponential growth of smart phone usage parallel to that threats are also increased. It has become crucial for the consumers and the companies to keep the information protected in such devices, let it be personal or for business use.
In mobile applications there are several sensitive data found such as payment card details and other personal data, etc. the breach of such data might incur users huge loss and damage, if a hacker attacks or if the mobile phone is lost/stolen. When it comes to corporates, it is quite essential for the them to always ensure the effectiveness of existing security measures. This would give an idea of the risk which is prevailing if any hackers attack the system. The best method is to do end-to-end penetration test.
If a penetration test is done, in such case the mobile application tries to circumvent the security system and gets unauthorized access. There are several steps included in the process. The reverse-engineering security controls, dynamic analysis and application logic, scrutinizing the application traffic and checking locally stored data, checking of the server-side components are few steps to be mentioned.
The work of the security engineers is to look at the application from the view point of the hacker and thus plan and attack in such a manner.
