Need for Pentest on Thick Client Application

Why Conduct a Pentest on your Thick Client Application?

Thick client applications are more complicated and customized as compared to web or mobile applications.This makes the pen testing approach for thick client applications very different. A very specific approach to testing these applications is followed after understanding the application in terms of technologies used, functionality, behavior, entry points for user inputs, core security mechanisms used by the application, languages, and frameworks.

Our Thick Client Application Checklist

We follow OWASP top ten vulnerability standards along with our own unique checklist to find vulnerabilities during thick client penetration testing.

  • Hardcoded sensitive data and authentication tokens (passwords, private keys, etc.)
  • Use of insecure encryption and hashing algorithms
  • Application service, provider, WMI subscription, task, and other permissions
  • Assembly compilation security flags
  • Application file, folder, and registry permissions
  • Protection of data in transit
  • Database and server configurations
  • Database user roles and permissions
  • Service account roles and permissions (client, application server, database server)
  • Web Services utilized by the application using SecureLayer7 web application testing methodology
  • Hardcoded encryption material (keys, IVs, etc.)
  • Application user roles and permissions
  • Application workflow logic between GUI elements
  • Database connections
  • Registry changes including creation, deletion, and modification of keys and values
  • Application objects and information stored in memory during runtime
  • Use of insecure encryption and hashing algorithms
  • File system changes including file and folder creation, deletion, and modification
  • Network protocols utilized by the application (SMB, FTP, TFTP, etc.)
  • Authentication and authorization controls are enforced on the client and server
