Mobile Application Security Testing
Release Date: 06/30/2016
Mobile application security testing and vetting processes utilized through MAST involve both static and dynamic analyses to evaluate security vulnerabilities of mobile applications for platforms such as Android, iOS and Windows. These processes cover permissions, exposed communications, potentially dangerous functionality, application collusion, obfuscation, excessive power consumption and traditional software vulnerabilities. It also covers internal communications such as debug flag and activities and external communications such as GPS, NFC access as well as checking the links that are written in the source code. In addition to security testing and vetting, the initiative has also proposed processes and procedures for security incidence response.
The use of mobile applications has become unavoidable, almost a necessity, in today's world. More people are starting to question the security of mobile applications and it's about time that you take a look at what the Cloud Security Alliance has to say about mobile application security!
