Mobile security is a particular branch of Software Security and refers to efforts of securing data on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets and the adjacent mobile applications that are used on the mentioned mobile devices. Typically, mobile security is something that enterprises work on to control sensitive information that could be jeopardized because of its use on various mobile devices. As the use of mobile devices has proliferated, securing them has increasingly become an important issue in mobile technology.

Moreover, Mobile Security also involves testing for security issues of Mobile Application developed for internal or public use.

Why you need a Penetration Test or a Vulnerability Assessment on a Mobile Application?

One of the big reasons that mobile security is such a major concern for businesses relates to the emerging use of mobile devices, including personal employee devices, in corporate systems. A trend called bring your own device (BYOD) is allowing businesses and their employees to profit from device-sharing strategies. The downside is the security gap, which is what mobile security seeks to address with a series of predetermined tests based on international testing methodologies to help your company reduce the overall mobile risks.

You must have in mind that any mobile application can be used to obtain sensitive and confidential data, to leverage access in the network or to elevate privileges in the same way as an attacker that targets a web application or a software application for Desktop operating systems.

How do these mobile vulnerabilities affect your customers and business?

Applications with vulnerabilities and malicious code have access to your data and device sensors. Your device isn’t rooted but all your email and pictures are stolen, your location is tracked, and your phone bill is much higher than usual.

On the other hand, your mobile application is on the same device that is compromised. By testing your mobile application you can find any vulnerabilities that expose your company’s confidential information or compromise your clients mobile phone and take the necessary actions to mitigate the risks that emerge.

What are the benefits?

In order to be up to date with the latest mobile technologies we can offer you mobile security testing and trainings based on our unique testing methodology so your company does not suffer from emerging mobile threats that can damage your businesses reputation or even worse put your customers at risk.

Choose the Approach that Match Your Needs

The Bit Sentinel Vulnerability Assessments & Penetration Tests are scaled in order to meet the needs of your business. While security is fundamentally based on people and processes, there are a number of technical solutions to consider when testing security of software applications. At a high level, these solutions include:

Black Box Testing

The Black Box Security Testing assumes no prior knowledge of the mobile application to be tested. This unique approach enables our engineers to test your system from the perspective of an external attacker with zero knowledge of your systems applications or infrastructure.The advantages of this type of testing include:

  • The test is unbiased because the designer and the tester are independent of each other.
  • The tester does not need knowledge of any specific programming languages.
  • The test is done from the point of view of the user, not the designer.
  • Test cases can be designed as soon as the specifications are complete.

Our Black Box testing regime is therefore exceptionally able to identify weaknesses in any of your services that are accessible online or within a network, including standard web services and in-house application services that are linked to your mobile application.

White Box Testing

Also known as glass box, structural, clear box and open box testing. This is a testing technique whereby explicit knowledge of the internal workings of the mobile application being tested are used to select the test data. The White Box Testing starts from a point of complete knowledge of the infrastructure to be tested, often including network diagrams, source code, and IP addressing information. Our experienced engineers then use their knowledge of the various elements of the infrastructure to identify the known weak points before conducting a comprehensive audit to identify all other vulnerabilities.The test is accurate only if the tester knows what the program is supposed to do. He or she can then see if the program diverges from its intended goal. White box testing does not account for errors caused by omission, and all visible code must also be readable.For a complete software examination, both white box and black box tests are required.

Grey Box Testing

The Grey Box Testing is a blend of Black Box testing and White Box testing techniques. This multifaceted test results in a comprehensive and highly focused test that cuts down on testing time-frame and budget. Moreover, this approach helps our engineers to learn how your application works and test at both ends whether a suspicious vector of an attack is plausible or not, minimizing False-Positive results.

Our Methodology

Our unique testing methodology covers Mobile Applications thoroughly, we just don’t rely on common methodology. We simulate best possible real time scenario that hackers use to hack your mobile applications and perform a series of unique tests to discover vulnerabilities that could dwell either client or server side.
  • Pre-engagement Interactions
  • Intelligence & Information Gathering
  • Threat Modeling (Authentication, Identity, Configuration, Session Management)
  • Vulnerability Analysis (Authorization, Business Logic, Data Validation, Security Management, Errors Handling, Cryptography, Client Side, Input Validation)
  • Exploitation
  • Post Exploitation, Pivoting & Privilege Escalation
  • Reporting & Mitigation
