Risk Based Security Testing

In today’s fast-moving technology marketplace governed by shorter times to market, first mover advantages and cut throat competition, it is very important that we move hand in hand with our customers to make sure their services and products remain secure from the moment they hit go-live. To achieve this, we have integrated security testing into the regular development lifecycle.

Risk-based security testing focuses on validating application conformance to security requirements and application specific security policy. It also identifies potential misuse and abuse of the application functionality. This testing comprises the following steps and uses a combination of manual and tool-based techniques. This activity usually runs parallel to integration testing.

Penetration Testing

A Penetration Test evaluates the security of a network, system or application by simulating attacks by a malicious user or hacker. The process involves attacking the target with or without prior knowledge of the underlying technologies to identify potential vulnerabilities. These may result from poor or improper system configuration, application weaknesses, known and unknown hardware or software flaws, or operational weaknesses in process or technical countermeasures.

This analysis is carried out both for insider (disgruntled employee or contractor) and external attacker and involves active exploitation of security vulnerabilities. All identified security issues are then presented to the management, application and systems teams along with recommendations for their remediation.

Security Test Offering:

  • Automated Mobile Application Security Tests – mobiVIGIL
    • We provide automated security testing of mobile applications for different mobile platforms using a cloud based solution known as mobiVIGIL.
    • The mobile applications can be uploaded or locations of mobile applications to be tested can be provided to mobiVIGIL.
    • A total of 16 categories of automated security tests are performed for various embedded malwares (including embedded spywares, trojans, viruses) and malicious intents in mobile applications (including data privacy issue, data leakage, privilege sms and mms, resource exhaustion, location and tracking, unsolicited network connections, etc.).
    • Reports and results are provided in an automated manner with mechanisms to integrate mobiVIGIL application testing interfaces with MDM and various mobile App Test Factories
  • Dynamic Profile and Behavior Security Tests
    • Mobile applications are dynamically analyzed and tested in lab with various security tools.
    • These tests verify security issues including hidden data transfer, unsafe data storage, insecure data transmission, resource exhaustion, insecure file system and database changes, privilege access violations, etc.

Mobile Application Security Testing – mobiVIGIL

Current Business Problems:

The use of smart phones and mobile applications has significantly increased in the last few years. With the advent of 3G and 4G networks smart phones are increasingly used for financial, business and social transactions, for accessing the Internet and for media consumption. However, the security threats associated with smart phones and for the applications installed in them are quite high. Safety of end user downloading and installing mobile applications, which are distributed through mobile application stores, is a security issue. The mobile application stores need to ensure safe and secure mobile application experience to their customers. Security testing of mobile applications thus becomes an important requirement along with reduced test cycle time.
