Professionally Evil Perspective podcast: Mobile Security Testing – Tips and Tools

I have to say that I really enjoy doing the Professionally Evil Perspective (PEP) podcast with Kevin.  It started as a crazy idea that I had a few months ago, and it is just as fun as I had hoped it would be.  In this episode, we are joined by Nathan Sweaney, a Senior Security Consultant at Secure Ideas, as we discuss some tips and tools for Mobile Security Testing.


With the number of organizations that are supporting BYOD, and just the sheer number of people that are using mobile devices, it is critical that we really start looking at the security of these devices and their applications.  Join James, Kevin and Nathan as we discuss creating a lab environment to test mobile applications looking for potential security flaws.   We discuss using tools such as Wireshark, Burp, and of course the OWASP Mobisec project for this testing.  We also discuss the use of the Throwing Start LAN Tap Pro to help sniff the raw network traffic for inspection.
