Where Automation Meets Human Brilliance​

The methodology

The Art of Strobes API Pentesting

APIs simplify the process of accessing the functionalities you provide for companies and teams, eliminating the need for them to develop these features independently. However, because your APIs are openly accessible, any vulnerability could potentially affect every application that depends on them. Such API security vulnerabilities have the potential to damage your reputation. Our approach involves the deployment of different tools commonly utilized by attackers, allowing us to assess your API as if it were under real-time threat. ​

What does Strobes API Pentesting Cover?

API Injection Attacks

Malicious manipulation of input parameters to execute unauthorized commands or access sensitive data in APIs.

Authentication and Authorization Issues

Weak or improper access controls lead to unauthorized access or privilege escalation in APIs.

Broken Access Control

Improperly configured access controls enable unauthorized actions and data exposure through APIs.

Insecure Direct Object References (IDOR)

Direct exposure of internal object references leading to unauthorized data access in APIs.

Injection Flaws

Assessing the app for vulnerabilities that could allow RCE, LFI, SQL etc.

Cross Site Scriptings

Execution of untrusted data in APIs, exposing users to session hijacking or data theft.

Inadequate Rate Limiting and Throttling

APIs are susceptible to abuse and denial-of-service attacks due to a lack of rate limiting or throttling mechanisms.

Lack of Input Validation

Vulnerability to injection attacks and buffer overflows in APIs due to improper input validation.

Data Exposure and Leakage

APIs returning excessive or unnecessary data inadvertently exposing sensitive information.

Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) Attacks

Unencrypted data transmission in APIs prone to interception, tampering, or theft.

Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF)

Insecure APIs allowing unauthorized requests leading to data leaks or server compromise.

Mass Assignment Vulnerabilities

APIs are susceptible to mass assignment attacks allowing unintended data modifications.
