How it Works

viaLab allows you to install apps on a provisioned Android or iOS device (or emulator), then test the security of those mobile apps through a variety of vulnerability assessments.

At the beginning of an assessment, you can input key information to search for including usernames, passwords, and keywords. viaLab also supports regular expressions, as seen below (note – all images cropped for spacing):

reg-ex-vialab

After each test, viaLab will search any data recovered for the keywords, usernames, and passwords you provide. In the images below, viaLab has found a password and an auth token during the network capture step.

After all tests are complete, viaLab will provide you with a report detailing any findings.
