API Penetration Testing
Modern web applications typically use frameworks with API backends and are essentially front ends for users that send requests to a backend GraphQL, SOAP or REST API also known as a RESTful web service. Incorrectly secured API’s are easy to exploit and endpoints that do not have the correct controls in place to rate limit malicious users are particularly susceptible to automated attacks.
PCS will go through the API, function by function, to think of ways that an attacker could leverage your vulnerabilities. Every API is different, and we’re prepared to perform diligent, advanced API penetration testing to protect your organization.
PCS will search for these vulnerabilities:
Because of the prevalence of unprotected GraphQL, SOAP and REST APIs, PCS is extending OWASP’s popular “Top 10” to API security.
Missing Object Level Access Control
Excessive Data Exposure
Lack of Resources and Rate Limiting
Missing Function/Resource Level Access Control
Improper Assets Management
Insufficient Logging and Monitoring
Benefits To You
PCS with API penetration testing helps organizations to meet security compliance requirements (i.e., PCI DSS, SOC 2, ISO 27001, GDPR, and HIPAA) and improve their security posture to protect their sensitive and regulated data, systems, and processes.
