Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Test your mobile apps for security weak points. Get a seal of approval about its validated security requirements. 

As Android/IOS devices has been a part of our day-to-day life, Data accessible on our Android/IOS devices includes all kind of data like financial, official, and personal data, If the developers are unaware of the security guidelines need to be followed during Android/IOS application creation, then the attackers can find loophole or any misconfigured API in the application and exploit the application.

Managing security risk is a growing challenge on these platforms, with new vulnerabilities found every day. Is your mobile app safe from attackers?

Crossbow Lab provide mobile app penetration testing services as a solution to solve these issues, by Exploring the application to assess the functionalities and vulnerabilities in the application with industry-leading researchers and security team. We have customized checklist and tools to test the application. 

Standards and Testing Methodology: CBL follows Mobile Application standards like OWASP top 10-2016, Sans25/CWE Top 25. The assessment was conducted in accordance with the recommendations outlined in the Open Web application Security Project (OWASP) and Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS). The testing methodology will be based on The Mobile Security Testing Guide (MSTG). It is a technical process for verifying the controls listed in the OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS).

Tools Used:

For Android: 

ADB, MobSF, Drozer, d2j-dex2jar, JD-GUI, Objection, Burp, sqlite3, Nessus  

For iOS: 

Objection, Frida, XCode, Burp pro, keychain dumper, clutch, cycript, passionfruit, sqlite3, 3utools, Nessus

How can CBL help?

Mobile App Security Services

Android & iOS apps

Test mobile apps on edged devices only. Ensure that there is no vulnerability related to storage of sensitive data and the the resilience of the application on Android and iOS devices. 

Mobile app

Test for mobile application API’s. This test will be aimed at the secure deployment and usage of the API’s. All the communications between the mobile apps and the services which are involved. 

Our Approach

Mobile Application Penetration Testing Flow

Steps Involved

1. Discovery

A. Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT)
B. Understanding the Platform and architecture

2. Assessment

A. Preparing test case according to application
B. Static Analysis
C. Dynamic Analysis

3. Exploitation

This step is a POC of exploiting the identified vulnerabilities. This will help identify the fixes which may have to be implemented for securing the application.

4. Reporting

All the findings will be reported along with the suggestions of the fix which needs to be implemented. Once the fixes are implemented the test will be done again before the issuance of a clean report.


  • Go live with the new mobile application without excess worry about security risks.
  • Meet tough industry security standards and comply with regulations.
Mobile penetration testing tests mobile applications/software/mobile operating systems for security vulnerabilities by using either manual or automated techniques to analyze the application.
