Mobile App Penetration Testing in Canada

Understand mobile risks with Mobile App Penetration Testing

Mobile App Pen Testing

During a Mobile App Attack & Penetration Test , Secmentis experts attack your mobile applications from a blackbox perspective, focusing on evaluating the security of your mobile applications.

The goal is to identify vulnerabilities in your mobile applications (e.g. Android and iOS mobile apps) and advise you on how to fix them, before malicious individuals exploit them.

Mobile App Penetration Testing in Canada

Secmentis Mobile App Penetration Test services are available in Canada, in major cities like Toronto (Ontario), Montreal (Quebec), Calgary (Alberta), Ottawa (Ontario), Edmonton (Alberta), Missssauga (Ontario), Vancouver (British Columbia), and Halifax (Nova Scotia), and can be provided remotely. Generally, we provide Mobile App Penetration Tests worldwide in the Americas, Asia & Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa regions.

Approach & Methodology

Our Mobile App Penetration Tests are conducted from a blackbox perspective and cover the OWASP Top 10 Mobile Risks vulnerabilities. We methodically follow these steps:

  • Intelligence Gathering to gather intelligence about your mobile applications, observe application behavior, identify framework information, enumerate resources (e.g. common libraries, controllers, log files, etc.), and identify sensitive inputs, services, files and data.
  • Analysis & Review to discover potential flaws in your Android and iOS mobile applications (client-side and/or server-side — their web API), and map these to their associated vulnerabilities.
  • Access to extract sensitive data (such as SSL certificates, keychain resources, sensitive secrets, etc.) from, and present flaws (e.g. relating to authentication, session handling, data storage, etc.) in, your Android and iOS mobile applications, and thus demonstrate the impact of a real attack.

Note: Our penetration tests begin only after you have given us explicit and signed authorization.


Secmentis will provide you with a report which includes the following deliverables at the end of our testing:

  • Executive Summary , highlighting critical mobile app vulnerabilities and business risks, and our recommendations
  • Technical Report with our findings and suggested recommendations for remediation and mitigation of the identified vulnerabilities
  • Presentation of the critical vulnerabilities and business risks (optional)

Which vulnerabilities does our Mobile App Penetration Test cover?

Our Mobile App Penetration Tests cover the OWASP Top 10 Mobile Risks vulnerabilities. The OWASP Mobile Top 10 methodology covers the industry-agreed most critical mobile application security flaws. These vulnerabilities are dangerous because they allow attackers to completely take over your mobile app, steal data, or prevent your mobile app from working.

Improper Platform Usage

We identify misuse of mobile platform features or failure to use platform security controls. We discover misuse of platform permissions, misuse of the keychain, or misuse of some other security control that is part of the mobile operating system.

Insecure Data Storage

We identify insecure storage of credentials on the mobile file system, inside application databases, or inside the keychain. In addition, we discover unintended data leakage originating from cached data e.g. URLs, logging, buffer caching, etc.

Insecure Communication

We identify misuse of SSL handshaking, incorrect SSL versions, weak SSL negotiation, clear-text communication, etc.

Insecure Authentication

We expose failures in the identification of users and devices, the maintenance of user and device identity within the mobile application, and weaknesses in session management.

Insufficient Cryptography

We attempt to identify flaws in the use or absence of cryptography within the mobile applications.

Insecure Authorization

We uncover failures in authorization, where it is necessary, by the mobile application, such as, granting anonymous access to resources, where authenticated and authorized access is required and intended.

Client Code Quality

We review the source code of mobile applications to identity code-level implementation problems and untrusted inputs, which could enable vulnerabilities such as, buffer overflows, format string vulnerabilities, etc.

Code Tampering

We discover whether misuse and tampering of device resident and installed mobile applications is possible, and the ways in which this could be achieved, e.g. memory patching, local resource and memory modification, method hooking, etc.

Reverse Engineering

We analyze the mobile application binary files to gather information that would be visible to a malicious attacker (e.g. cryptographic information, etc.), which could be used to exploit the mobile application.

Extraneous Functionality

We discover extraneous functionality within the mobile application that should not appear in the public release version of the application. This may include hidden backdoor functionality left by the developers, unintended sensitive data exposure, disabling 2-factor authentication (2FA) during testing, etc.

Don't let the bad guys hack your mobile apps first.
