0x7DF Mobile Application Bootcamp - Journeyman Level

SensePost | August 1-2 & 3-4


This journeyman course presents you with a hands on introduction into testing mobile applications. The course aims to be as platform agnostic as possible and will provide you with the skills to get started with mobile application security testing. The methodology taught during this course allows students to apply their skills across a wide range of platforms, and provides the knowledge needed to apply security best practices to mobile application development.

Course Topics include:

1. Building Your Own Penetration Testing Platform
Having access to the right tools and platforms is key when testing mobile applications. Here we help students create the ultimate mobile testing platform and delve into hardware and emulators usage, common tools that work and intercepting the stream between mobile device and the Internet.

2. Mobile Application Analysis
Your lab is ready and you want to test the latest mobile phone application for vulnerabilities, but what next? This module starts with how you'd perform information gathering, looking at storage on the device, iOS/Android security and how you can test for weaknesses.

3. Testing Fundamentals
Being methodical when testing any application is key. We discuss authentication, authorisation, session management and storage and how they could all yield potential vulnerabilities.

The class is a mixture of lectures, hands-on and a final CULEX where you get to tear apart real-world mobile applications.
