Examines the application binary and performs a file-level vulnerability scan to identify flaws.

Source code review

Perform automated and manual secure code reviews to identify application code vulnerabilities.

API and Web Services

Assess the security of Web Services and APIs that the mobile application can access.

Grey Box Test

Simulate insider threats with minimal knowledge of the environment of the mobile application. Includes elevating privileges, installing custom malware, and exfiltrating fabricated critical data.

White Box Test

Using admin privileges and access to server configuration files, database encryption principles, or architecture documentation, the White Box Test identifies potential points of vulnerability.

Black Box Test​

simulate external threats with minimal knowledge of your mobile application and no knowledge of its security policies.

Updates & CVEs

Check the application for security updates, patches, and fixes that are missing.

Platform Use

We ensure that Platform Use Architecture requires a security review. Reviewing IDEs regardless of whether you are using iOS, Android, or a native or web-based mobile app

Authorization

Device is a one-shot deal; therefore, it should be as secure as possible. Evaluation of authorization control measures

Cryptography

Find threats before they intend to execute them on the system. Encryption security and decryption

Reverse Engineering and Decompiling

Comprehensive security evaluation by professional hackers. Check for misconfigurations or the absence of essential security measures such as root detection, SSL pinning, and code obfuscation, as well as hardcoded credentials or keys.

In addition to looking for vulnerabilities in the application itself, our testing also examines the application’s back-end services. By testing both the application and its back-end services, we ensure that every aspect of the application is covered. Our methodology employs Reverse Engineering, Binary, and file-level analysis to identify difficult-to-find vulnerabilities, going far beyond a standard penetration test.

Summary Report

Wattlecorp Mobile Pen Testing Procedures

Threat Modelling

The application's threat profile details all potential vulnerabilities, risks, and associated threats. This enables testers to execute customized test plans to simulate how hackers might attack, thereby identifying real risks rather than the generic vulnerabilities uncovered by automated scans, thereby preventing false positives.

Application Mapping

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

Client Side Risks

Principal focuses of client side attack simulation include:
Interaction with local platform storage
Employing encryption
Binary and ultimate analysis
Unprotected API calls
Files with sufficient access controls
UI/UX problems
Enterprise Logic Threats

Network Side Risks

Simulation of network layer attacks verifies communication channel attacks by capturing network traffic and evaluating transport layer protection as data is transmitted between the application and servers.

Server Side Risks

Back-ends such as web services and API provide the intended functionality of the application. Our testing team simulates attacks against the mobile application's web services and APIs.

Database Risks

Back-ends such as microservices and data storage, cache and memory use, and encryption in storing data, particularly authentication data, personally identifiable data, and other sensitive information.

Explore our strategy for mobile application penetration testing

Our Mobile Application Penetration Testing Service analyzes the inner workings of your applications and identifies critical issues, exposure points, and business logic flaws using advanced security testing methodology. We identify application security vulnerabilities by combining automated and manual testing and removing false positives, assessing every aspect of your mobile application’s security with source-code-assisted application penetration testing that reveals a broader range of vulnerabilities and exposures. Applications are evaluated before projects commence. Next, the team uses automated tools to scan for vulnerabilities and manually verifies the results. The team then identifies and exploits implementation errors and business logic manually.

Mobile App Penetration Testing Service Outputs

Extensive Report

Pen Test report describing the specific vulnerabilities identified on the platform, how they were identified, the methods and tools used to identify them, and, where applicable, visual evidence. The report must include a security vulnerability risk rating for risk reduction references, as well as recommended remediation actions and their implementation procedures.

Individual Workshop

Static PDF Reports are insufficient because vulnerabilities are not immediately fixed. This is why we provide a one-on-one workshop and a security debrief between the security team and developers to ensure that they comprehend critical and high-level vulnerabilities, as well as guidance on remediation and countermeasures, as well as support for future learning methods to avoid them. We can provide this debrief in person if necessary.

Retesting

We provide a complimentary retest to confirm that corrective measures were effective and correctly implemented. And all applicable patches have been able to fix all known vulnerabilities without introducing any new problems.

Secure Badge

After the customer has implemented the recommended remediation measures, we offer a free retesting service and, upon successful completion, a summary report confirming that the remediation measures have been implemented. And, if deemed satisfactory, we will provide you with a service that notifies you of new vulnerabilities for up to a year.

1:1 Consultation On-Demand

Following the submission of the detailed report, we provide advice and assistance for up to one year and answer any questions regarding the implementation of the recommended corrective actions. This service is accessible via developer-preferred channels such as phone, email, Zoom, Meet, Slack, Jira, and Teams, among others.
