Internet of Things (IoT) Security & Penetration Testing Services
Components of IoT system universe are a combination of non-traditional and traditional gamut of the penetration testing world. Hence, MVLCO’s methodology to thoroughly understand the business process and the underlying components deployed for automation becomes absolutely critical!
What is different in AppSec from Pen-Testing?
- AppSec methodology includes verification of technical as well as business process scenarios of the App
- AppSec has a unique process to intercept the functional requests (fired from front-end of the App) and reply exchanged between client and server. The said requests and replies are analysed & modified (if required) to be able to either cause disruption in the business process or get the information which otherwise should be available.
MVLCO advises AppSec should be conducted at least annually or after major version release of the App or major change in functionality of the App.
1 What is different in Pen-Testing IoT?
- IoT pen-testing is not just about pen-testing traditional components such as sever systems, networking equipment, Web or mobile Apps
- IoT pen-testing requires understanding of embedded operating systems, wireless communication protocols, chalking out the data-path to pin-point the possible point of compromise
- Last but not the least – understanding the interfacing of non-traditional devices with the traditional IT environment to exploit the most common entry points to the IoT Universe
2 Benefits of periodic IoT Pen-Testing?
- Comply with regulatory & contractual requirement
- Comply with information security standards requirement
- Key process in Know Your Cyber Security Risks
- Stay ahead of the perpetrators!
3 Why MVLCO for IoT?
- MVLCO Team correlates business use-cases to identify and exploit the vulnerabilities
- MVLCO Team has the expertise to understand the diverse universe of IoT systems
- Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) based testing methodology for IoT pen-testing
- Team uses combination of Tool and Manual scenarios with a hacker’s eye view
- Risk-based report with Proof of Concept (POC) screenshots (wherever possible)
MVLCO advises IoT should be conducted at least annually or after major modification to the components of IoT system or major change in functionality of the IoT system. Please verify your compliance requirement.
