See your app through a hacker's eyes to find the real sources of vulnerability

The Mobile Application Hacker's Handbook is a comprehensive guide to securing all mobile applications by approaching the issue from a hacker's point of view. Heavily practical, this book provides expert guidance toward discovering and exploiting flaws in mobile applications on the iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone platforms. You will learn a proven methodology for approaching mobile application assessments, and the techniques used to prevent, disrupt, and remediate the various types of attacks. Coverage includes data storage, cryptography, transport layers, data leakage, injection attacks, runtime manipulation, security controls, and cross-platform apps, with vulnerabilities highlighted and detailed information on the methods hackers use to get around standard security.

Mobile applications are widely used in the consumer and enterprise markets to process and/or store sensitive data. There is currently little published on the topic of mobile security, but with over a million apps in the Apple App Store alone, the attack surface is significant. This book helps you secure mobile apps by demonstrating the ways in which hackers exploit weak points and flaws to gain access to data.

Understand the ways data can be stored, and how cryptography is defeatedSet up an environment for identifying insecurities and the data leakages that ariseDevelop extensions to bypass security controls and perform injection attacksLearn the different attacks that apply specifically to cross-platform apps

IT security breaches have made big headlines, with millions of consumers vulnerable as major corporations come under attack. Learning the tricks of the hacker's trade allows security professionals to lock the app up tight. For better mobile security and less vulnerable data, The Mobile Application Hacker's Handbook is a practical, comprehensive guide.

I am a penetration tester and I found this book is is an excellent guide for assessing mobile applications. The other platform-specific books are great if you want to become a true expert in a specific platform, but this book provides the right amount of information for evaluating an application in a reasonable time frame. Don't be confused by the page counts (which was my biggest concern), I found this book to contain more useful application vulnerability information than the platform-specific books. More importantly, it provides the information you'll want to know, such as how to find the vulnerabilities in the application and in the code, and how to remediate them. The other books are great if you want to find advanced exploits, such as memory corruption attacks, including kernel exploits, but for general mobile application assessment, this is what I'd recommend. I hope they keep this book updated regularly since a lot of the details will be out of date in several years.

Full disclosure: I have not read the Windows Mobile or Blackberry sections.

If you're looking for ways to assess mobile applications, this is the book for you. This book is to mobile application penetration testing as the Web Application Hacker's Handbook is to web app penetration testing. The iOS Hacker's Handbook and Android Hacker's Handbooks are more device and OS-centric, whereas this book will give you the methodology to get up to speed testing the applications running on each of these platforms. (There is a small section on Windows Phone hacking as well). It's a good resource to get you from zero knowledge to dangerous enough.

Awesome mobile security resource - in depth, insightful, and well written. This book will be your guide from basic to advanced mobile security and assessments. The book is divided into platforms so it is an easy reference when completing platform dependent testing. My frequent go to reference when conducting mobile application penetration testing.
  • Felolune
Great book. Highly recommend
  • Zadora
Good starting place for someone getting into mobile security
  • Browelali
I am a professional penetration tester who specializes in mobile applications. This book does a good job of covering the basics and if you are looking to get started in mobile pen testing this is a great place to start. It has sections dedicated to iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry applications.

Excelent book
Hacking is just a rude word for accessing any repository or channel of data or program code. It is mainly used when the accessing has been done for improper or illegitimate purposes or motives, but accessing is still all it is, so I suppose this book has been called a hacker’s handbook rather than a professional’s handbook just to have a more eye-catching title.

Why might a non-expert and non-professional be interested in such a production? Speaking for myself, it is to have some comprehension of an issue that affects me and all of us even if we have little or no influence over it – much as we might want to have some understanding of global warming or of nuclear proliferation. Allowing for the fact that the book is no kind of primer or introduction, I would say that it is really quite clearly written. You might have to look up some of the basic terms e.g.'jailbreaking’ or ‘sandbox’, but if so just go ahead and look them up – that’s what Wikipedia is for. What nobody could fail to be struck by is just how many ‘platforms’ there are on which our most important and confidential information can be hacked. This is not a totally new situation created by mobile technology, because even the basic old scenario of a desktop mini with internet connexions was and is still vulnerable to malware and general malfeasances such as theft of one’s address book, worms, trojans and the rest of it. Come the mobile revolution it is all far more complicated and diverse, but hacking now is what hacking was before, just a lot cleverer.

The authors don’t actually say whether there is a realistic option of just pulling down the shutters and sticking with the traditional set-up. Indeed why should they? Their book is a technical work of reference, not a philosophical enquiry into the pros and cons of getting into the swim of the new portable ocean. However the huge increase in functionality together with the sheer convenience of having so much information readily accessible in such user-friendly form surely makes the case without any need to spell it out. Short of some completely unforeseeable culture-shift the mobile world must be here to stay. The non-expert user still has some choice among the platforms, applications etc he or she wants to get involved with, and the book can actually help even such users by the situations it depicts and also with some occasional advice and caveats. But however we may feel about that, another sense is inescapable – the security industry is chasing the game.

The hackers are always bound to be a step or two ahead . Security techniques will be proactive to a certain extent, but in the most serious cases they will be reacting, and that is the situation I suppose we have to weigh up for ourselves – do we think this or that mobile platform feels safe enough to risk getting on to? Whatever we think, a technical handbook like this is a snapshot, because obviously the new technology is being developed all the time. However that is no reason, in my own opinion, for the hesitant amateur user to opt out of making a decent attempt to get at least a basic understanding. Experts are great, and we should feel some gratitude to the hardworking authors of this hefty work of reference. In the nature of the case things will go on changing, but we at least have the chance to get on to the moving bus where it is at today.
