Top Mobile Security Testing Techniques
Whether we are testing a mobile-only application or the mobile interface to existing software, there are a number of testing challenges that are unique to the mobile platform. In this session we learn how to snoop on the conversation between the mobile and the server, how to impersonate the mobile application, and how to simulate the real-world network conditions that mobile devices experience. We show inexpensive, practical tools that let us do repeatable mobile simulations in a test environment. This session is best for people who have experience testing mobile applications, but want to incorporate security into their mobile testing activities.
