Training abstract

This course is the culmination of years of experience gained via practical penetration testing of mobile applications as well as countless hours spent in research. We have structured this course around the OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide (MSTG) and relevant items of the OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS), so this course covers and goes beyond the OWASP Mobile Top Ten. This course provides participants with actionable skills that can be applied immediately from day 1.

Please note our courses are 100% hands-on, we do not lecture students with boring bullet points and theories, instead we give you practical challenges and help you solve them, teaching you how to troubleshoot common issues and get the most out of this training. As we try to keep both new and advanced students happy, the course is very comprehensive and we have not met any student able to complete all challenges during the class, therefore training continues after the course through our frequently updated
training portal, for which you keep lifetime access, as well as unlimited email support. Each day starts with a brief introduction to the mobile platform for that day and then continues with a look at static analysis, moves on to dynamic checks finishing off with a nice CTF session to test the skills gained.

Day 1: Focused specifically on Android: We start with understanding applications and then deep dive into static and dynamic analysis of the applications at hand. This day is packed with hands-on exercises and CTF-style challenges

Day 2: Focused on iOS: We start with understanding iOS Architecture and various security precautions in place. We then focus on static and dynamic analysis of the applications at hand. The day is filled with hands-on exercises ending with a CTF for more practical fun.

Course Objectives

This course will take any student and make sure that:

Attendees will be provided with

Topics Included

  1. Review of Common Flaws in Source Code and at Runtime
  2. Modification of App Behavior Through Code/Configuration Changes
  3. Interception of Network Communication aka MitM
  4. Jailbreak/Root Detection Bypasses and App Review from a Privileged Standpoint
  5. Instrumentation (Review and Modification of App Behavior)
  6. CTF Challenges for Attendants to Test Their Skills

Why should you take this course?

This is more than a physical attendance course: You get the physical course but also lifetime access to a training portal with step-by-step video recordings, slides and lab exercises, including all future updates for free.

Students can take the course at their own pace and training portal access ensures topics can be reviewed on an ad-hoc basis as required by the student online after the course.

This training has been built from real issues seen in real applications, not fabricated vulnerabilities that you will never see in practice.

The goal is to start from the basics and ensure that each student comes out of the training with a significantly higher level of proficiency in the artistry of mobile pentesting.

Students will be taught ways to identify the attack surface of mobile apps, exploit interesting vulnerabilities and means to fix them. Ranging from fun defeating root/jailbreak detection, pinning, modifying app behaviour at runtime to inspecting what apps are doing in real time. The training also covers effective identification and exploitation of common vulnerability patterns, modification of Android and iOS apps at rest and at runtime, and more.

As the course has been written and carefully created by professional mobile app penetration testers, after many years of experience, many practical tips will be shared to leverage automation and make penetration testing more efficient as soon as the student
goes back to their office.

Student / Prerequisites for attendees

This course has no prerequisites as it is designed to accommodate students with different skills:

This said, the more you learn about the following ahead of the course, the more you will get out of the course:

Who should attend

Any mobile developer, penetration tester or person interested in mobile security will benefit from attending this training regardless of the initial skill level:

The course is for beginners, intermediate and advanced level students. While beginners are introduced to the nuances of mobile app security from scratch, intermediate and advanced level learners get to perfect both their knowledge and skills on the subject.
Extra mile challenges are available in every module to help more advanced students polish their skills.

The course is crafted in a way that regardless of your skill level you will significantly improve your mobile security skills:

If you are new and cannot complete the labs during the class, that is OK, as you keep training portal access, you will learn a lot in the class but can continue from home with the training portal.

If you are more advanced in mobile security you can try to complete the labs in full and then take the CTF challenges we have for each day, you will likely also attempt to complete some exercises from home later 🙂

What to expect

A fully practical class that will seriously improve your mobile security knowledge and skills, regardless of the skill level you come in with.

Battle-tested tips and tricks that take your abilities to the next level and that you can apply as soon as you go back to your workplace, making security testing of mobile apps as efficient as possible.

Intensive hands-on exercises that challenge you to deep dive into the world of mobile security.

Lifetime access to training portal (including all future updates), unlimited email support, access to private groups to communicate with other students, mandated, police, IoT and otherwise interesting apps from various countries.

What not to expect

This is more than a physical attendance course: You get the physical course but also lifetime access to a training portal with step-by-step video recordings, slides and lab exercises, including all future updates for free.

The course does not cover: Android or iOS 0-day, exploits against the platforms themselves, ARM exploit writing, writing buffer or heap overflows.

Do not expect the teachers to be talking through slides most of the time: This class is practical not theoretical, the teachers don’t bore you with slides all the time, instead you do exercises all the time and the teachers help you solve the challenges you face as you complete them.
