Security testing guidelines for mobile apps

  1. 1. Security Testing Guidelines for mobile Apps Welcome to Presentation http://mobilelabsinc.com/
  2. 2. Mobile App Threat Landscape Location-independent (mobile) • “Always online” and traceable •Consumerization – devices are built for personal use • Focus on functionality and design rather than security • Raise of sensitive use cases for mobile apps
  3. 3. Mobile app development companies are making things more easy by designing mobile apps that are user- friendly and secure.
  4. 4. Situation Mobile Security Testing Mobile apps have some specific characteristics regarding penetration testing Custom guidelines have not been available msg systems decided to develop guidelines (MSTG) with Munich University of Applied Sciences
  5. 5. Challenges Identify differences to common penetration tests Flexible Preconditions App Security also depends on device security (jailbreak, different platforms, versions, interfaces, MDM, etc. Different attackers (internal, external, network or device access, blackbox / whitebox, etc.
  6. 6. Mobile Security Testing Guide Overview
  7. 7. Intelligence Gathering Try to catch as much as possible information about the app • Consists of 2 analysis
  8. 8. Differences to conventional Process Focus mainly on the architectural/technical part Not considering mobile specific requirements
  9. 9. Intelligence Gathering Environmental Analysis Architectural Analysis Focus on the company behind the app and their business case and the relating stakeholders • Analyze internal processes and structures App (network interfaces, used data, communication with other resources, session management, jailbreak/rooting detection, …) • Runtime environment (MDM, jailbreak/rooting, os version) • Backend services (application server, databases, firewall, …)
  10. 10. Summary Mobile Security Testing Guide … considers mobile characteristics, but is independent from technologies • … helps to improve transparency and repeatability for mobile penetration testing • … is a holistic approach with sufficient flexibility • … and ultimately helps to improve mobile app security.
