This is the official GitHub Repository of the OWASP Mobile Application Security Testing Guide (MASTG). The MASTG is a comprehensive manual for mobile app security testing and reverse engineering. It describes technical processes for verifying the controls listed in the OWASP Mobile Application Verification Standard (MASVS).
The OWASP MASVS and MASTG are trusted by the following platform providers and standardization, governmental and educational institutions. Learn more.
MAS Advocates are industry adopters of the OWASP MASVS and MASTG who have invested a significant and consistent amount of resources to push the project forward by providing consistent high-impact contributions and continuously spreading the word. Learn more.
Please note that the MASTG focuses primarily on native apps. These are apps built with Java or Kotlin using the Android SDK for Android or built with Swift or Objective-C using the Apple SDKs for iOS. Apps using frameworks such as Nativescript, React-native, Xamarin, Cordova, etc. are not within the main focus of the MASTG. However, some essential controls, such as certificate pinning, have been explained already for some of these platforms. For now, you can take a look and contribute to the work-in-progress being made in the discussions "Hybrid application checklist experiments" and "Basic Guidelines for Hybrid Apps".
