IoT Security Should Start with the UI Setup

Summary:
IoT security is a large and changing topic, but there is one basic starting point where device security can be improved during development and testing: the user interface. The UI should be the first line of defense, but it’s currently weak in most IoT devices. Implementing better practices during the initial UI setup will go a long way toward improving security.

performance testing tools for hybrid mobile application

Mohd Shariq asked on July 27, 2017 - 3:55am | Replies (1).

I want to perform performance testing for hybrid iOS and android mobile app. Please suggest ways on how to do it with some open source and paid tools

The list of tools is something you can easily find with a quick google search. The question of 'how to do it' is not something that can be answered without knowing a lot about your development process, what your team goals are, and what problems you are trying to solve. I'd recommend starting by talking with your team.

what are highly vulernable areas in ecommerce website, that needs to test properly?

how to test vulnerability of ecommerce, whether the applied security is properly working or not?

whether the website can be hacked by anyone or not

This is highly dependent on the product you are working on, the technology stack used to build it, the team that built is, and how security has been handled so far. If you are asking because you want to start a security investigation, you will probably want to talk with your development team to organize that work.

 

As a general note: the OWASP top 10 list might be a decent place to start. You can find that here: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Top_Ten_Project
