A Dynamic Application Security
Testing (DAST)

A Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) analysis is specifically designed to detect conditions indicative of a security vulnerability in an application while in its running state. One of the most common and classic methods of hacking used by hackers is the Man in the Middle Attack (MiTM).

Dynamic Application Security Testing ( DAST )

How It Works

The Appknox DAST is a fully automated simulation of real-time interactions between users (your team) and our physical Android and iOS devices accessed by you via our cloud-based infrastructure. Our system analyzes, detects and catches loopholes that are threatening in nature and helps businesses plug and secure them from the runtime and network attacks like MiTM.

Dynamic Application Security Testing

Press Start, and proceed and select a compatible device from the dropdown list on the popup window, based on your selection the app will be installed in the real physical device & you will have control over it digitally.

Once the app gets installed & reflects on the phone model on the left of the dashboard, All user has to do in interact with the App user all its features & functionalities. More you crawl more feasible it gets for the scanner to cover all the dynamic level test cases and find issues.

API Scan

Enable API Capture

If this function is enabled, the scanner will detect & capture all the API calls made & API End Points used during the dynamic scan session. The list of captured APIs will appear under the API scan section & will be used for API testing.

DAST has a limitation of testing only client-side of vulnerabilities but as your app interacts with the server there is a high possibility of open issues in between requests and responses to the server. We can test that using our next phase of Vulnerability Assessment called API security Testing.
