Application Programming Interface [API] VAPT

Increase security and reliability of your Applications & Systems by conducting a comprehensive vulnerability assessment and penetration testing.

What makes an API vulnerable?

There is no silver bullet that will make your API invulnerable to all attacks. Instead, you need to take a comprehensive approach that takes into account the specific risks that your API faces. There are many factors that can make an API vulnerable, but some of the most common include:

  • Broken Object Level Authorisation (BOLA)
  • Broken User Authentication
  • Improper Asset Management
  • Excessive Data Exposure
  • Lack of Resources & Rate Limiting
  • Broken Function Level Authorisation
  • Mass Assignment
  • Security Misconfiguration
  • Insufficient Logging & Monitoring
  • Insecure API Key Generation
  • Accidental Key Exposure
  • Server-Side Vulnerability
  • Incorrect Caching Headers
  • Insecure Internal Endpoints

Why Securing APIs are Important?

Frequently Asked Questions

If Solutions and Organisations are left un-protected or under-protected, it allows for hackers to easily access sensitive information without being observed and re-use the stolen data for wrong-doing or purposes for which the User has not given permission to.
A serious attack could result into a denial of delivery of Service, ransom demands or complete loss of Data. This will result into loss of Credibility, damage claims by Clients, loss of future Business

Technical Security and General Security.
Technical Security pertains to protection of the Platform/Product/Solution/Servers from attacks.
General Security pertains to implementing Organisation wide processes to prevent attacks from being successful

Vulnerability Assessment is a technical review of the Code for any bugs & loopholes that may allow unauthorized access or entry to the System.
While writing code developers may not be aware of the security loopholes in the written code.
Vulnerability Assessment is designed to identify such loopholes so that it can be fixed permanently, this ensures that hackers are unable to access the code for malicious purposes.

Approximately 1.25 months excluding remediation activity.

Multiple tools are used during VAPT. Burp Suite & OWASP ZAP are the most commonly used, but depending on need & necessity, we use a host of tools & systems available in the Kali Linux OS. 
For Mobile Apps we frequently use Santoku OS. 
For APIs we primarily use Postman.

We do not remediate but do provide explanation on how to remediate the Vulnerabilities. Fixing them is your responsibility.
