As mobile phone usage continues to grow at an outstanding rate, this course shows you how you would go about testing the mobile platforms and installed applications, to ensure they have been developed in a secure manner. Hacking By Numbers Mobile will give you a complete and practical window into the methods used when attacking mobile platforms. This course is ideal for penetration testers who are new to the mobile area and need to understand how to analyze and audit applications on various mobile platforms using a variety of tools.

Some of the Topics Include

Why We Love This Course:

This is a new course in the Hacking By Numbers series and one we are incredibly excited about. This course is a mixture of talks and hands on mobile application hacking. You’ll tear apart top 10 mobile applications and look for flaws and also exploit them like attackers are currently doing.


It should not be your first hacking course, but can be taken back-to-back with Bootcamp or with Combat, depending on your existing level of experience. Although prior participation in an HBN course is not a prerequisite, significant exposure to hacking training, tools and techniques is highly recommended. Students should ideally have some development understanding and the ability to read code. Exposure to basic application development and coding would be preferred (not necessarily mobile development).

What We'll Provide

SensePost will provide fully configured laptops for use during training. Each student will also receive a course handbook and a USB drive with all the tools, scripts and materials used on the course

What Students Should Bring

None, laptops will be supplied containing all tools and images required to complete this course.


All of SensePost’s Hacking By Numbers trainers are working penetration testers or developers. What we perform for our clients often makes it into our HBN courses as modules. We love teaching and have been doing so for Blackhat for over a decade now. Our courses are hands on, fun to do and also show real-world scenarios that students will encounter.
