The OWAPS Mobile Security Testing Guide (MSTG) is a comprehensive manual for mobile app security testing and reverse engineering for the iOS and Android platform, describing technical processes for verifying the controls listed in the MSTG’s co-project Mobile Application Verification Standard (MASVS). The MASVS defines a mobile app security model and lists generic security requirements for mobile apps while the MSTG serves as a baseline for manual security testing and as a template for automated security tests during or after development. Included with the MSTG, the Mobile Security Hacking Playground is a collection of iOS and Android mobile apps, that are intentionally built insecure. These apps are used as examples to demonstrate different vulnerabilities explained in the MSTG. Learn more about the MSTG and the MASVS.
