Abstract
In the recent day’s mobile applications usage is increasing by banking and financial institutes, health and hospital management systems such as mobile banking apps, e-commerce apps, news feeds, inpatient and outpatient information, social networking apps and game apps etc. All these mobile applications require support for security properties like authentication, authorization, data confidentiality, and sensitive information leakage etc. The mobile applications have seen rapidly growth in the last couple of years. These applications has provided suitable to banks, credit card data, personally identified information, travel applications etc., the enterprise mobile applications extend corporate networks beyond the perimeter devices and thus potentially expose these organizations to the new types of security threats. Security risks associated with these applications can often be identified and mitigated by subjecting them to security testing. Compared to desktop or web applications, mobile applications are hard to test for security. At the same time, these applications are not necessarily more secure then desktop or web applications. Keywords:Application Security, Mobile Security, Penetration testing, Information Security, Security Testing, VAPT.
