At runtime, threat actors can employ a variety of techniques to analyze and modify the app. Today, it is easier than ever before for a malicious user to deploy various techniques like jailbreaking, rooting, hooking, and more in order to steal decryption keys, intercept communication to servers and more.
Threat actors tamper with mobile apps for a variety of ends, such as to unlock hidden or premium functions, repackage apps to steal confidential data or learn more about the application at runtime to support reverse engineering attempts. Gaining protection against dynamic analysis is essential. Combined with protection against static analysis, protection against runtime attacks helps to prevent these outcomes, preserve your app’s integrity and your brand’s reputation.
Guardsquare’s polymorphic approach ensures that every app’s build comes with a unique combination of check locations and exact checks, as every RASP integrity can be validated with a diverse palette of specific checks. And as an app developer you have full control over which parts of your app not to touch, or to touch more aggressively. For additional protection, code hardening is automatically applied to all inject locations.
Too often delayed to the end of the development lifecycle, security needs to be considered right from the start. As your app development progresses, testing, feedback and monitoring helps you to ensure the highest possible level of security.
As more people live their lives on mobile devices, it’s crucial for mobile app developers to be familiar with and protect against the most common security risks. That’s why we’ve broken down the OWASP Top 10 Mobile Security Risks for mobile app developers and how to defend against them.Learn More
Mobile applications are a rapidly growing attack surface. The tools and techniques being used to compromise these environments are constantly evolving.
High-quality, layered mobile app security solutions are extremely effective in fortifying the security posture of Android and iOS applications and SDKs against particularly difficult-to-address risks outlined in the OWASP Mobile Top 10 and help development teams meet best practices described by the MASVS.
This report provides an overview of how a combination of code hardening and runtime application self-protection (RASP) can improve mobile application security by mapping to the OWASP Mobile Top 10.
