Globally Open Web Application Security Project(OWASP) releases a list of top 10 security risks or vulnerabilities which are
Approach and Procedure of test:
Process includes 3 phases:
Invesics's Pen-test approach goes beyond OWASP Top-10
Our Security Experts perform the following steps:
In case of Android app, you are requried to provide APK file. In case of iOS app, you are required to provide IPA file. If it is a manual based testing, along with previously mentioned things, we will need dummy credentials of each users roles that has access of respective apps.
In Mobile VAPT, pen-testing is done from the app UI - consist of BlackBox and GreyBox testing. In Secure code review, we will need access of your app code - which will be reviewed from Security perspective
