The majority of mobile application testing companies have chosen security testing to be their main specialization because of the elevated level of cyber crime today. Security testing service means testing strategy being used for verification of the system’s security as well as for analysis of the risk associated with providing a holistic approach to application protection, hacker attacks, viruses, unsanctioned access to the confidential data and so on.

The main purpose of security testing services is to guarantee the network and the app data security.

Key Actions for Checking the Mobile App Security:

  • to make certain that data of the app users (logins, passwords, credit card numbers) are defended from the network attacks of the automated systems and cannot be detected by selection;
  • to examine if an app does not provide an access to the secret content or functionality without appropriate authentication;
  • to ascertain that the application security system requires strong password and does not allow an attacker to seize another users’ passwords;
  • to check if the session’s timeout is adequate for an app;
  • to find the dynamic dependencies and to make measures to protect these vulnerable areas from hackers;
  • to protect an app from the SQL-injection attacks;
  • to find cases of the unmanaged code and to eliminate its after-effects;
  • to make sure that the validity of certificate has not expired whether an app uses Certificate Pinnig or not;
  • to protect an app and a network from the DoS-attacks;
  • to analyze the data storage and validation requirements;
  • to provide the sessions management for information protection from the unauthorized users;
  • to examine all the cryptographic codes and to correct mistakes if necessary;
  • to make sure that the app’s business logic is secured and not exposed to outside attacks;
  • to analyze the system files interaction, to detect and correct the vulnerabilities;
  • to check the protocol handlers (e.g. isn’t the target page exposed to resetting by default by using the malicious iFrames);
  • to protect an app from the harmful attacks on clients;
  • to save a system from the tortious intrusions during the program’s operation;
  • to prevent possible malicious consequences of the file cashing;
  • to avert the insecure data storage in the cash memory of the device’s keyboard;
  • to preclude the possible harmful actions of cookies;
  • to assure regular control of the data safety;
  • to examine user files and to stave off their possible tortious influence;
  • to indemnify a system from the cases of the buffer overflow or from the violation of the memory info integrity;
  • to make analysis of different data flows and to secure system from potential tortious influence.
