Reverse Engineering Android Apps with Bytecodeviewer

Description hands on Session
Two important OWASP Top 10 Mobile risks are how resistant an application is against Reverse Engineering and Code Tampering. In this hands on session, we will go through the process of Reverse Engineering known Android apps (like Facebook, some banking apps,Twitter etc), or bring your own app and test it if you want!

Using hands-on techniques you will learn:

  • How to apply OWASP Mobile Top 10, Mobile Testing Guide(in progress) and Android Cheat Sheet pen testing
  • How hackers actually ‘decompile’ an APK and code tamper apps with Hooking methods using Xposed or changing Smali
  • Techniques to find useful information in highly obfuscated apps
  • How to bypass Certificate Pinning and Root detection
  • What can you do to make your apps harder against Reverse Engineering
  • How to root a phone. If you have not root'ed a phone, bring one (make sure is using Android Nougat 6.0 or earlier versions of Android)

Automating On-Deploy Security Testing* of web applications with ZAP and Jen

Description hands on Session

In this workshop we will go through installing and configuring Zap to work with Jenkins so that it automatically tests the deployed web application when we ask Jenkins to do so. Moreover we will write an example Zap plugin to better test specific parts of the example application.

We will go through:

  • Configuring Jenkins to work with ZAP (there’s a plugin, we’ll go through how it works)
  • Configuring the testing harness to work with ZAP
  • Writing zap plugins in order to test better

Requirements: <To be announced>

Attacking your web app 

There are some great OWASP projects that deal with both methodologies and tools for testing web sites. There may be even more to it! This workshop will provide the developer with a look at the offensive mindset an attacker has in attacking your web site

We will go through:

  • Using automated scanning tools against the app
  • Using ZAP we will look at a few things you can do as a proxy
  • Use sqlmap to enumerate and inject into databases
  • How to go after those non-technical app vulnerabilities
