API Security Testing

API Security testing can be considered as testing the server-side of an application inside out. Our fully automated scanners perform a complete analysis of web servers, database and its implementation for all components on the server that interact with your mobile app.

API Scan

How It Works

The start under API section will lead to a Pop which will Reveal all the API captured during the dynamic scan, user can select all the appropriate APIs and simply press the “Start API Scan” to initiate the testing. The scanning can take 20-50 min based on the number of endpoints selected to complete.

Appknox tests for 20+ test cases in this and some of the common test cases are Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities in HTTP Requests, Command Injection Vulnerabilities in HTTP Requests, Cross-Site Tracing Vulnerabilities, Detecting SQL injection and others.

Post API Scan we cover the complete Vulnerability Assessment of the application. As a next step, you should initiate Penetration Testing on the application to deep dive into detected vulnerabilities. This includes a security researcher working on it and may take 3-5 working days depending on how big your app is.
