As mobile phone usage continues to grow at an outstanding rate, this course shows you how you’d 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 analyse and audit applications on various mobile platforms using a variety of tools and platforms.
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)
Students should bring a laptop capable of running Kali Linux (4gb free Ram, 20GB disk space free) and any jailbroken mobile devices they'd like to use on the course. All other content will be provided
