Cutting-edge penetration testing techniques for APIs and Mobile Apps
Our API and Mobile Application Penetration Testing service are designed to provide organizations with a comprehensive test of their API and mobile application security. We use a risk-based approach to analyze and test the application and API's architecture, implementation, and controls.

API Penetration Test
An API penetration test is a type of security assessment that focuses on testing the security of an application programming interface (API). The goal of an API penetration test is to identify vulnerabilities in an API and provide recommendations for how to fix those vulnerabilities.
During an API penetration test, Secure Ideas manually tests the API using a variety of techniques and tools. We send different types of requests to the API to see how it responds, examining the API's documentation to look for potential security vulnerabilities, and attempting to access the API using unauthorized credentials.
Mobile App Penetration Test
The goal of a mobile app pen test is to provide the app's developers or administrators with information about potential security vulnerabilities so that they can be fixed before the app is released or made available to users.
During a mobile app pen test, a tester would manually test the app using a variety of techniques and tools. This could include manually sending different types of requests to the app to see how it responds, examining the app's code to look for potential security vulnerabilities, and attempting to access the app using unauthorized credentials.
API and Mobile App penetration testing is scoped by an estimation of the overall effort. The following tables provide a starting point for what to expect, and the estimate can usually be refined with a short scoping call.
