Source code review

Perform automated and manual secure code reviews for identifying security weaknesses in the application code.

API and Web Services

Assess the security of Web Services and security of APIs accessed by the mobile application

Grey Box Test

Simulate insider threats with minimum knowledge of the mobile app's environment. Includes escalating privileges, installing custom-crafted malware, or exfiltrating faux critical data.

White Box Test

identify potential points of weakness by using admin rights and access to server configuration files, database encryption principles, source code or architecture documentation.

Black Box Test​

simulate outsider threats having strictly limited knowledge of your mobile app and no information on the security policies,

Updates & CVEs

Check the application for missing security updates, patches and fixes

Platform Use

Architecture needs security review, we ensure that. Reviewing IDE's whether you are using IOS, Android or mobile app is native or web

Authorization

Device is a one shot game, make it as secure as it gets. Assessment of authorization controls.

Cryptography

Find threats even before they plan to execute it to the systems. Encryption strength and enumeration

Reverse Engineering and Decompiling

360 Degree security assessment by professional hackers. Check for misconfigurations or missing core security defences such as root detection, SSL pinning and code obfuscation, hardcoded credentials or keys.

In addition to looking for vulnerabilities in the app itself, our testing also looks for issues in the back-end services that are used by the application. By focusing both on the app and its back-end services, we ensure that all aspects of the application are covered during testing. Our methodology uses Reverse Engineering, Binary and file-level analysis to find hard-to-discover vulnerabilities, going far deeper than a typical penetration test.

These security testing activities may include but are not limited to:

Summary Report

Steps Involved in Wattlecorp Mobile Pen Testing

Threat Modelling

Threat profile of the application lists all possible vulnerabilities risks and associated threats. This enables testers perform tailor made test plans to simulate how hackers could attack which identifies exposing in real risks instead of the generic vulnerabilities gathered from automated scans which and thus helps to avoid false positivies

Application Mapping

Identify the application details and map them to various aspects of threat profile created. Some parameters 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 Risks

Key focus areas of client side attack simulation are
Interaction with platform
Local storage
Use of encryption
Binary & final analysis
Insecure API calls
Files with adequate access controls.
UI/UX issues
Business Logic Risks

Network Side Risks

Network layer attack simulation checks for communication channel attacks, capturing network traffic and assessing transport layer protection as data is transmitted from the application to servers.

Server Side Risks

Back-ends such as web services and API provides the application its intended functionality. Our testing team simulates attack of web services & APIs consumed by the mobile application.

Database Risks

Back-ends such as microservices and data storage, cache and memmory use and encryption use in storing data, especially authentication data and personally identifiable data and oter sensitive information

Explore our mobile application penetration testing strategy

Our Mobile Application Penetration Testing Service relies on in-depth advanced security testing methodology, analyses the inner workings of your applications and identify critical issues, exposure points, and business logic flaws. We identify application security vulnerabilities by combining automated and manual testing and removing false positives, assessing every aspect of the security of your mobile application with source-code-assisted application penetration testing that uncovers a wider range of vulnerabilities and exposures. Projects start with Assessments of the application. in the next stage, the team scans for vulnerability with automated tools and manually validates the results. Finally, the team manually identifies and exploits implementation errors and business logic. 

Mobile App Pen Test-Service  Deliverables

Why Choose Wattlecorp Mobile Application Testing Program 

Budgeting for Security Testing. 

Vulnerability scanning and penetration testing are not the same. while vulnerability scan only identifies vulnerabilities, a penetration tester digs deeper to identify, then attempt to exploit those vulnerabilities to gain access to secure systems or stored sensitive data.

The average cost of a penetration test can cost anywhere from $6,000 for a small, non-complex app to more than $100,00 for a large, complex one. Which is why wattlecorp provides a range of services that are suitable for everyone from startups to enterprises without compromising on quality.
