Penetration Testing Android Applications
Mobile application penetration testing is an up and coming security testing need that has recently obtained more attention with the introduction of the Android, iPhone and iPad platforms among others. The mobile application market is expected to reach a size of $9 billion by the end of 20111 with the growing consumer demand for smartphone applications, including banking and trading. A plethora of companies are rushing to capture a piece of the pie by developing new applications, or porting old applications to work with the smartphones. These applications often deal with Personally Identifiable Information (PII), credit card and other sensitive data.
