With the huge proliferation of mobile applications comes the need for robust security testing to validate that mobile applications are defending systems and data to the same level as the standard web application.

The aim of the exercise is to validate that the mobile application is coded securely, preventing attackers from subverting authentication controls, escalating privileges, introducing malicious code or manipulating the application’s functionality to achieve their goals. Any failure to mask and/or store sensitive information correctly could lead to leakage and its use by applications other than the intended.
