Mobile Application Security Testing – Sum-Up & Landscape Overview

Release Date: 07/13/2020

With the explosion of smart mobile devices, mobile applications (apps) have surpassed websites as the avenue of choice when it comes to consuming services. However, with the proliferation of mobile apps, new security challenges have arisen which need to be addressed.

Users place a good deal of trust in mobile app stores’ abilities to review, test, flag, and block apps that exhibit undesirable behavior. Yet, even with the best expertise and resources touted by the most popular and established app stores, malware manages to slip through their defenses from time to time.

In this summary paper, the Mobile Application Security Testing (MAST) Working Group builds off of its 2016 MAST whitepaper and gives an overview of the current MAST landscape.

Key Takeaways:
  • Security practices of major mobile app stores
  • Popular guides and tools for app testing
  • Current MAST trends
  • The future of MAST
Who It’s For: App developers, especially anyone concerned with app security.
