API security testing

API penetration testing is a security exercise where our API experts attempt to find weaknesses in your API security defenses. We test for the OWASP top 10 API vulnerabilities, business logic vulnerabilities, as well as segmentation, AuthN and AuthZ controls. Where weaknesses are identified, you’ll receive a remediation roadmap as well as training and consultancy with our offensive security team. We can provide full penetration testing capabilities or augment your existing solution with our API-specific expertise.

Wib’s Testing Methods

Black Box Testing

In a black box test, you will not provide Wib with any information about your infrastructure other than a URL or IP, or in some cases, just the company name. Our offensive team are tasked with exploiting your infrastructure as if they were an external attacker.

White Box Testing

In a white box test, Wib will receive detailed information about your applications and infrastructure, including a range of credentials to utilize. This test is aimed at providing information on how your security will withstand an attack by an ‘insider’. These tests tend to provide the best results for the time and cost.

Grey Box Testing

In grey box testing, Wib will only have limited information to aid our testing methods. As a mix between Black and White Box Testing, it strikes a balance between depth and efficiency and can offer the simulation of both an insider and external attacker.
