What is API Security Testing?

API security testing is the primary assessment used to identify and address vulnerabilities in Web services that could be exploited by hackers for malicious purposes, using the same tools and techniques. Our API penetration testing services simulate a real cyberattacking targeting your Web services and offer an accurate representation of your API security by presenting several real-world opportunities for hackers to circumvent your security measures and launch additional attacks.

OWASP Top 10 API Vulnerabilities

Our API security tests combine both automatic and in-depth manual testing techniques. We use the OWASP’s API security standard as a baseline for our testing methodology in order to identify vulnerabilities unique to each API.

METHODOLOGY

Our API Security Testing Methodology

Our approach is based on manual techniques and goes beyond a typical scan, allowing you to identify complex vulnerabilities present in modern APIs. Here is a breakdown of our approach divided in three distinct types of tests:
Source Code Review

Security Assessment

Our experts validate that your API meets various security requirements. For instance, authorization parameters and data access conditions are assessed to determine how the API handles permissions.

Penetration Testing

We attempt to breach your API by circumventing user privileges and bypassing authentication functions to identify technical vulnerabilities that allow hackers to further infiltrate your systems.

Fuzzing

Using various attack methods commonly deployed by hackers, we manipulate API requests and parameters to identify vulnerabilities that can be exploited to compromise your security.

EXPLOITS

Improve Your API Security

In order to maximize the identified vulnerabilities, our extensive attack surface covers various types of exploits commonly used by hackers to breach your API:

Parameter tampering

Fuzz testing

Endpoint authorisation

XSS Attack

Command injection

Endpoint authentication

CSRF attack

Man-in-the-middle attack

Frequently Asked Questions

Penetration testing is essential to any business, but it remains a complex subject and choosing the right provider can be challenging. The following FAQ answers the most frequently asked questions to help you make an informed decision. Couldn’t find your answer? Ask an expert for free.

Penetration tests can be performed to meet various objectives. Meeting regulatory requirements (PCI, SOC2, etc.) and securing systems from cyberattacks following recent changes are among the most common use cases of pentesting.

The cost of a penetration test varies significantly according to a number of factors. For this reason, there is no established price range for this type of assessment. Each project is tailored to your objectives and your environment. To find out how much your penetration test would cost, reach out to our specialists to get a free quote.

Manual penetration tests and fully automated scanners are the most common techniques to identify and fix cybersecurity vulnerabilities within your technologies. While many similarities exist between the two, they are often misinterpreted as the same thing, although they yield very different results.

Every professional in the industry agrees that cyber risks cannot be sufficiently mitigated by relying on automated scans alone. It can be a great starting point for those who lack the resources to undergo frequent manual tests, but should not be your only resort to test your cybersecurity.

Upon completion of the test, your company receives a report detailing all of the findings. This document is broken down in several sections that are relevant for various stakeholders. A professional penetration testing report should always present the following items:

  • An executive summary that outlines the findings in a clear and concise language. This section should be easily understood by your non-technical staff and acts as a key component of your risk management strategy.
  • Vulnerability listing prioritized by risk level. 
  • Technical details of the identified vulnerabilities including their potential impact if exploited and supporting evidence (screenshots, HTTP requests, etc.).
  • Actionable recommendations to fix each identified vulnerability.
  • External references to facilitate the implementation of the recommended corrective measures.

Various steps are taken by our specialists to prevent the potential impact of our tests on the stability of your technological environment and the continuity of your business operations.

Unless specifically instructed to, our specialists refrain from performing any disruptive types of attacks that can, for example, cause denial of service. Thereby, most of our clients are unable to perceive any impact of our tests due to the rigorous measures we deploy to conduct our projects as seamlessly as possible.
