What is Mobile Application Penetration Testing?
The Mobile Applications we use daily have significantly advanced in recent years. This advancement and reliance upon such services has exposed users to a variety of new security risks. Protecting these applications from new threats is a constant challenge, especially for developers who may not be security aware and typically working toward a performance deadline.
Xiarch have a wealth of knowledge in the area of mobile application security testing, and the professional Mobile Application Security Testing Service can be used to identify vulnerabilities that exist on your Mobile applications.
How Can Our Mobile Application Penetration Testing Help?
Xiarch can help mitigate the risks associated with Mobile Applications by identifying vulnerabilities that exist within the app in both IOS & Android Operating Systems.
Xiarch Mobile Application Testing service looks at mobile applications at a storage level by reverse engineering the application package and viewing the database and configuration files. We use specialised technology to simulate a malicious application stored on the phone alongside your application to check for vulnerabilities that require a malicious application to exploit.
We also examine the API backend using our full API methodology which covers all of the OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities, common misconfigurations and in depth business logic testing.
Our Mobile Application Security service would be delivered as part of the Xiarch Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) and full access to the SecurePortal and other complementary tools would be provided.
What are the Risks?
- Mobile Applications are becoming increasingly complex, as they do so their threat landscapes are becoming larger with more personally identifiable and business critical data being stored.
- Insecure applications may result in sensitive data being exposed to other applications on the device, the ability to trigger application components to perform malicious actions amongst other attack vectors. Mobile Applications typically make use of on API to send and retrieve data from the server, this is also a focal point of assessment with our full API methodology being covered.
- The application will be reversed engineered to check for misconfigurations or missing core security defences such as root detection, SSL pinning and code obfuscation.
- The source code of the application will be analysed to look for misconfigurations, hardcoded credentials or keys. There is no need to supply us with the source code, this will be available via reverse engineering the application.
- The application-level will be analysed for weaknesses such as weak passwords policies, insecure change password functionality and extraction of data from the application.
- Services, Broadcast receivers and activities will be tested in an attempt to trigger these outside of the normal business logic of the application. This often finds authentication bypasses and the ability to interact with the application and its data in a malicious way.
Our Assessment Methdology
A holistic approach to perform penetration test that not only discovers security vulnerabilities, but also finding business logic vulnerabilities along with security checklists based on industry standards, including OWASP Top Ten, PCI Compliance etc.
Before an application assessment can take place, Xiarch defines a clear scope of the client. Open communication between Xiarch and the client organization is encouraged at this stage to establish a comfortable foundation from which to assess.
Xiarch engineers collect as much information as they can on the target, employing a myriad of OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) tools and techniques. The assembled information will assist us with understanding the working states of the association, which permits us to evaluate the risk precisely as the engagement progresses.
At this stage, we consolidate computerized contents and instruments, among different strategies in further developed data gathering. Xiarch experts closely inspect any conceivable assault vectors. The accumulated data from this stage will be on the basis for exploitation in the upcoming stage.
Attack and Penetration
In this step, we initiate both manual & automated security scan to find all possible attack vectors & vulnerabilities. After this, we run exploits on the application to evaluate its security. We use different methods and open-source scripts and in-house tools to gain a high degree of penetration. All these are done cautiously to secure your application and its information
This is the final stage of the whole assessment process. In this stage, the Xiarch analysts aggregate all obtained information and provide the client with a thorough, comprehensive detailing of our findings. The entire report will contain a high-level analysis of all the risks along with the final report will highlight all the weaknesses and strengths present in the application.
Discussion & Remediation
Once the process is completed our team will discuss the report and find the appropriate solutions for the bugs located. After that, a comprehensive discussion will be carried out to fix these vulnerabilities . We will ensure that the changes were implemented properly and all the vulnerabilities have been fixed. The team will provide detailed closure or remediation report which reflects the more secure state of the application.
