About the Book
The Mobile Security Testing Guide (MSTG) is a proof-of-concept for an unusual security book. It is the result of an open, crowd-sourced effort, made of the contributions of dozens of authors and reviewers from all over the world.
With the MSTG, we aim to create best practices for mobile security, along with a comprehensive set of security test cases to verify them. The best practices and test cases are packaged into beginner friendly, complete and practical guide to mobile app security testing and reverse engineering.
With this first release we publish content from our GitHub repository that is useful for Android and iOS security testers. Note however that the content in the Github repository will be updated with new content regularly and the e-book is not updated automatically. Feel free to download it for $0 or contribute any amount you like. All funds raised through sales of this book go directly into the project budget and will be used to fund production of future releases, including:
- Editing and proofreading by professional editors for new content of the Mobile Security Testing Guide and Mobile AppSec Verification Standard
- Graphic design and layout
- Purchase an ISBN
