Mobile Application Pentest

Mobile Application Penetration Testing is a specialized process designed to identify and address security vulnerabilities in mobile applications. This type of testing involves simulating cyber-attacks against mobile apps (both Android and iOS platforms) to uncover security weaknesses that could potentially be exploited by attackers.

Why Companies Need Mobile Application Penetration Testing:

Securing User Data Mobile apps often handle sensitive user data, and testing is crucial to protect this data from unauthorized access and breaches.

Ensuring Compliance Mobile apps must comply with various regulations and standards, such as GDPR, for data privacy and security.

Preventing Financial Loss Security breaches in mobile apps can result in significant financial losses due to fraud or data theft.

Maintaining Market Reputation A secure mobile app is essential for maintaining customer trust and a positive brand image in the competitive app market.

Protecting Intellectual Property Mobile applications often contain proprietary algorithms and code, which need to be protected from theft or reverse engineering.

Methodologies Used by Cerebral Security for Mobile Application Penetration Testing:

  • OWASP API Top 10

OWASP MASVS (Mobile Application Security Verification Standard)

The OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS) serves as a baseline for mobile application security. It defines a comprehensive set of security requirements for mobile apps, ensuring that they are adequately protected against common threats and vulnerabilities specific to mobile platforms.

OWASP ASVS (Application Security Verification Standard)

OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) provides a framework for security measures in mobile application development. ASVS focuses on a broad range of security requirements, offering a level-based approach for application security verification.


The OWASP API Top 10 is a critical component in testing mobile application APIs. It outlines the top ten most common and critical security risks in API design and implementation, providing guidelines for safeguarding against these vulnerabilities in mobile app APIs.
