ios pentesting and security training


The iOS Pentesting and Security Training is a specialised course within the Security Assessment domain that focuses on pentesting iOS mobile applications. This course is designed for students and professionals who wish to pursue a career in mobile penetration testing.

The training provides an in-depth coverage of iOS app penetration testing, with a highly practical and instructor-led approach. It starts from the basics, ensuring that even candidates with little or no knowledge of iOS can follow along. The course begins with an introduction to the specifics of the iOS platform, covering iOS architecture, security standards, decryption of iOS applications, reversing code quality, scanning for targeted issues, exploiting common vulnerabilities in iOS devices and apps, forensics of iOS devices, network monitoring on iDevices, and automated tools to complete tasks.

The course primarily focuses on real-world vulnerabilities in iOS applications, daemons, services, and Apple’s iMessage. To facilitate practical learning, we have selected a number of previously disclosed real-world vulnerabilities for each topic. This ensures that candidates learn from real examples and not just mock-up bugs.

The iOS Pentesting and Security Training is designed to be a complete guide to understanding and practicing iOS mobile app hacking efficiently in real-time. It is an online certification course by Certcube Labs, with study materials and references provided to enhance learning and understanding. By the end of this course, participants will have gained the knowledge and skills required to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in iOS mobile applications.
