The popularity of iOS devices is rapidly increasing. Every release of new versions of devices by Apple gives a strong impulse to the market. iOS devices are used by common users as well as managers, top executives, traders, and other individuals who handle large volumes of confidential information and use these devices to transfer assets including digital ones. That is why iOS devices are actively targeted by cybercriminals who use a variety of techniques to compromise users’ security. Thus, the importance of regular iOS application penetration testing performed by professional security vendors should not be underestimated. 


Compared to Android penetration testing, iOS pentesting is less complicated. iOS is a closed-source operating system, and, thus, iOS apps and their updates can be sourced only from a single official source. There are also fewer supported devices when compared to Android.


Hacken’s iOS penetration testing is designed to analyze the security of the iOS version installed on the device under test along with the applications installed on this device. iOS application penetration testing provides for identifying weaknesses the exploitation of which by malicious parties can result in the compromise of the device and any information it holds or any networks to which this device can access. Hacken employs the latest iPhone pentesting tools to deliver high-quality services to clients.


The value of iOS penetration testing


iOS security testing performed by reputable security vendors will allow companies to estimate the security of their applications against common and less widespread security threats. iOS pentesting allows companies to detect such vulnerabilities as insecure communication, injections, insecure direct object references, and other flaws enabling the compromise of the device by malicious actors. iOS application security testing also identifies the weaknesses in data storage through which hackers can steal sensitive information belonging to a user such as bank account details or location information. 


Pentest of iOS apps also allows companies to verify whether controls such as SSL/TLS are properly implemented and, thus, whether they can ensure the integrity and confidentiality of data. During iOS application penetration testing our experts will help you identify the functionalities of your mobile applications that may potentially enable access to users’ sensitive information by other applications or malware. iOS penetration testing also allows you to see whether the authentication and authorization mechanisms of your mobile applications are developed enough to prevent malicious actors from carrying out unauthorized actions in the application. Generally, iOS penetration testing is the most effective method for you to test the security of your iOS applications before hackers try to compromise them.

The iOS pentesting methodology applied by Hacken is focused on 3 pillars including authentication session management testing, input and output manipulation testing, and information leakage tests.


Authentication Session Management

Authentication session management testing performed within the scope of iOS pentesting provides for verifying whether the authentication procedures that are in place in the application correspond to best practices for the type of this application. During this phase of iOS pentesting, our experts check whether the application is compliant with such industry standards as Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Gramm Leach Bliley Act, and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.


Input and Output Manipulation

Input and output manipulation testing performed within the scope of iOS pentesting provides for checking whether adequate data validation techniques are in place to protect the application against the injections of data into communications aimed at forcing the application to carry out incorrect and unexpected operations initiated by malicious actors. Cybercriminals inject meta-characters into a command string and thereby cause the inadvertent interpretation and execution as a part of the command. Our specialists responsible for iOS application penetration testing will also identify potential vulnerabilities in entry points and detect dangerous library/API calls.


Information Leakage

The information leakage testing stage of the iOS application security testing is aimed at preventing unintentional disclosure of information to end-users. When performing the information leakage testing within the scope of iOS app security testing, our experts will identify weaknesses the exploitation of which by malicious actors may facilitate further brute force attacks on the application. 


  • Does the scope of iOS penetration testing go beyond an iOS device?

    Yes, the scope of iOS penetration testing includes the testing of the security of all applications installed on the device under test. Also, the security specialists identify whether there are any flaws that may cause any damage to the information stored on the device or the networks to which it has access.
  • What types of vulnerabilities can be detected during iOS pentesting?

    Hacken iOS penetration testing specialists detect such vulnerabilities as insecure communication, insecure direct object references, injections, data storage weaknesses, and other flaws by exploiting which hackers can steal users’ data.
  • What are the security risks associated with iOS devices?

    Functionality issues in your iOS devices may allow other applications or even malware to access users’ sensitive information. Also, malicious actors can perform unauthorized actions in the application in case the authorization and authentication mechanisms are not developed enough.
  • What are the competitive advantages of Hacken in iOS pentesting?
