Web service penetration testing is assessing the functions and methods of an Application Programming Interface (API), determining how they could be abused, and how authorisation and authentication mechanisms could be bypassed.
We perform a series of in-depth authenticated, unauthenticated, automated and manual runtime analysis of the web service and explore the target API for vulnerabilities that cannot be found by automated means, such as business logic flaws. For the best results, we develop custom test cases tailored to the target API context to probe the web service and find the faults before the bad guys do.
All of our web service security testing is benchmarked against the industry-recognised Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Application Security Verification Standard.
Aurian consultants use the most advanced web application penetration testing tools and techniques to affirm the security of your applications.
By building off industry-recognised testing standards, such as those developed by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), we ensure that our assessments deliver the right balance of breadth and depth to allow you to feel confident about your application security.
Our Web Service Penetration Tests help identify weaknesses in your API development and deployment, and provide benefits including:
