Supporting the Refactored OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS)

The OWASP foundation updated their Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS) which marked another great milestone of the group continuing to evolve these guidelines. We took a look at these amendments and were happy to see alignment between our principles, OWASP’s, and our solutions. Appsweep, specifically, is a great resource to compliment this concept from the refactored MASVS effort:

“Make controls more specific so that they can be linked to very concrete and actionable MSTG test cases.”

All 8 of the MASVS categories are addressed using the security testing tool, AppSweep. This article by our team details how to leverage AppSweep with MASVS, touching on the following topics:

  • OWASP & Guardsquare, alignment in philosophy
  • Built-In Support for OWASP MASVS Categories
  • Automating your OWASP Mobile App Testing
