Présentation de l'éditeur

In Detail

Android is the most popular mobile smartphone operating system at present, with over a million applications. Every day hundreds of applications are published to the PlayStore, which users from all over the world download and use. Often, these applications have serious security weaknesses in them, which could lead an attacker to exploit the application and get access to sensitive information. This is where penetration testing comes into play to check for various vulnerabilities.

Learning Pentesting for Android is a practical and hands-on guide to take you from the very basic level of Android Security gradually to pentesting and auditing Android. It is a step-by-step guide, covering a variety of techniques and methodologies that you can learn and use in order to perform real life penetration testing on Android devices and applications.

The book starts with the basics of Android Security and the permission model, which we will bypass using a custom application, written by us. Thereafter we will move to the internals of Android applications from a security point of view, and will reverse and audit them to find the security weaknesses using manual analysis as well as using automated tools.

We will then move to a dynamic analysis of Android applications, where we will learn how to capture and analyze network traffic on Android devices and extract sensitive information and files from a packet capture from an Android device. We will then learn some different ways of doing Android forensics and use tools such as Lime and Volatility. After that, we will look into SQLite databases, and learn to find and exploit the injection vulnerabilities. Also, we will look into webkit-based vulnerabilities; root exploits, and how to exploit devices to get full access along with a reverse connect shell. Finally, we will learn how to write a penetration testing report for an Android application auditing project.


This is an easy-to-follow guide, full of hands-on and real-world examples of applications. Each of the vulnerabilities discussed in the book is accompanied with the practical approach to the vulnerability, and the underlying security issue.

Who this book is for

This book is intended for all those who are looking to get started in Android security or Android application penetration testing. You don’t need to be an Android developer to learn from this book, but it is highly recommended that developers have some experience in order to learn how to create secure applications for Android.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A book to understand how an Android application works and how to make it more secure 19 juin 2014
Par Fabio Radin - Publié sur Amazon.com
I really love this book! "Learning Pentesting for Android Devices" is a book for all curious guys that want to understand how things are working inside their Android device. The goal of the book is to explore which vulnerability and issues could be present in an Android application and how to prevent and to reveal them. This is just an interesting argument, but what is really more interesting is the way to reach this goal: becoming for a couple of hours an "hacker" and jump on the dark side of the development! Yes, because decompiling, reverse engineering, exploiting and attacking will be really more clear to you after reading this book!

The book starts with a couple of chapters about Android howtos: what is an Android app, how it is generated and which tools should be used to achieve the goal. After that, Aditya brings you on the reverse path: in chapter 3, starting from an app, he brings you to the source code! There is a very clear description about which tools could be used, how to use them and which limits you could experiencing during this adventure. In chapter 4, the classical network attacks are explored: network traffic analysis, proxy interception, man in the middle and so on.

More or less after an half of the book, Aditya starts with a very not so common description of Android vulnerability and attacks (from the device point of view!). This is really uncommon and very very interesting for understanding how the Android phone you have in pocket is made. A specific chapter is dedicated to SQLite, one of the most common SQL database deployed in several millions of devices and to the WebView, one of the most common Android widget.

In the end, even if this book is for every developer with a basic knowledge about Android programming, I must suggest it to everyone has intention to start and develop an Android app. Your app will be surely more secure in the end and there will be no risk about finding the source code of your app in internet!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 good introductory book for Android security and vulnerabilities 22 juin 2014
Par ramakrishna - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a great book for those who would like to explore and experiment about android application and platform security. Authors have designed the book very well beginning with basics of android security architecture and going deeper into the nuances of the platform security. The tools that are explained here really helps the testers for auditing and perform reverse engineering the android applications and also helps in understanding different kinds of android vulnerabilities and attacks.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 detailed advice 3 mai 2014

Android is the most popular phone operating system in the world, measured by unit volume. Probably also by total revenue. Apple gets more profit per handset, but sells fewer. Developers of Android applications should be aware of how to protect against intrusion. The first chapter is just a run through of the layout of the operating system. A version of linux optimised for mobile platforms.

It might help if you already have developed for a virtual machine environment. Since each application runtime instance runs within its own VM. But the point of divergence from laptop or desktop VMs is that here the VM framework is used for performance and not security. In large part, the rest of the book flows from this observation.

Eclipse is the development platform used. Good, because it is free and heavily tested and maintained. Turns out, it has an option, that makes an Android Virtual Machine Device Manager. This runs an Android virtual device. So you develop and test on a desktop with emulation. The text takes you through how all this can be done, with simple examples. Of these, take careful note of the Burp proxy. It can sniff [analyse] the network traffic. This is an important way to find vulnerabilities in an application. An entire chapter goes into other ways to do traffic analysis. Passive and active. The latter is a little harder maybe. But it lets you debug by stepping through the stages of a given network interaction between an app and its server.

Another very useful tool is for reverse engineering an existing Android app. If you have coded in java, you may be aware of programs to do likewise for java bytecode. Conceptually, it's the same idea for Android.

Good start for a Android security novice

I would consider myself new to Android apps security aspects. However I've found this book easy to follow. As the step by step approach to a penetration testing process is easy to follow.

At the end of the book, there's a sample of a pentest report, that's considered a helpful document.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent content and very well explained. 9 avril 2014
Par Shivang Desai - Publié sur Amazon.com
I got the book delivered to me a week back, and have gone through all the chapters as well. The book really serves the one purpose for which it has been written for - To give an introduction to the various security aspects in Android, such as finding vulnerabilities in Applications, auditing them, reverse engineering, forensics and so on.

The ARM Exploitation chapter was quite tough to understand, but after 2-3 reads, everything made perfect sense to me. I wish the book was a bit longer, but still it's fine as everything is to the point. Do not expect to find much theoretical topics in the book, as it is completely hands-on. Even some of the latest vulnerabilities such as the Webview exploitation and XAS was given in how-to manner in the book, which was easy to follow.

Overall a nice Android Security book, and must to be have by anyone interested into Android Security.
