Protect your API from latest cyber security risks.
API Penetration Testing is a cybersecurity assessment that checks the security of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). It involves simulating attacks on APIs to uncover potential vulnerabilities, ensuring that the communication between different software systems is safe and protected from unauthorized access and data breaches. By conducting API Penetration Testing, organizations can strengthen their API security and safeguard sensitive information from potential threats.
At Qualysec, we provide professional API penetration testing services in India and the USA, helping you stay ahead of risks and maintain a strong security posture.
By 2022 API exploitation will be the topmost web application security vulnerability. No emphasis on API testing, leads to incidents like user accounts being hijacked, application algorithm exposure, frauds, data thefts, network shutdown and etc.
When it comes to Api vulnerabilities, ensuring their security is crucial. Api penetration testing helps identify and address potential weaknesses, ensuring the integrity and protection of your app.
API’s (Application Programming Interface) can be considered as the backbone of any web application. Virtually, company’s most valuable sensitive data is stored behind an API. Therefore, ensuring a hack proof API is critical.With QualySec, you get:
There is a rise of security issues due to API exploitation. Even OWASP has noticed it. Due to which, OWASP published their Top 10 version of API testing as well. We at QualySec, analyse your product for the OWSAP Top 10 API Testing.
The best API testing is running active tests against the API endpoints. Conducting dynamic API testing simulates a real attack on the API and detects vulnerabilities present in the codes developed by your development team. QualySec provides dynamic API testing for your product to ensure the security aspect of it.
Static application programming interface testing is a security testing tool which scans though your source codes of the web application to distinguish any potential security vulnerabilities. Static application programming interface testing tool scans for patterns in the source code that might represent any security issues. The static testing tools are language based. Which means, languages of API and the API testing tool mist be the same.
SCA testing tool that scan at the reliability of your web application. Furthermore, it runs a match through its database of known security vulnerabilities. By conducting API tests using this tool enables us to detect if the application is using a library or framework known for security issues.

API penetration testing is a process of evaluating the security of an API (Application Programming Interface) by simulating attacks to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could be exploited by attackers.
API penetration testing should be performed by experienced security professionals who have a deep understanding of APIs and the latest security threats and techniques. At Qualysec, we have a team of highly skilled security experts who are trained to perform API penetration testing.
To scope an API penetration test, we need to understand the architecture, functionality, and associated security risks of the API. Additionally, we need to identify the use cases and expected behavior of the API, and the types of users and systems that interact with the API.
There are several API penetration testing tools available, both open-source and commercial. At Qualysec, we use in-house tools along with a combination of tools such as Burp Suite, OWASP ZAP, Postman, Fiddler, and SoapUI to perform comprehensive API penetration testing.
The duration needed to conduct an API penetration test is subject to the API’s size and complexity, the scope of the test, and the employed testing methodology. Typically, a simple API penetration test can be completed within a few days, whereas a more extensive test may require two to three weeks.
We provide a comprehensive report on vulnerabilities and risks found during API penetration testing, along with remedial recommendations and guidance on how to address the issues. Additionally, we issue a security certificate to build trust and show compliance with industry standards and regulations.
The cost of an API penetration test depends on the scope of the test, the size and complexity of the API, and the testing methodology used. At Qualysec, we provide customized solutions based on the needs and budget of our clients.
To test the security of an API, we perform a combination of manual and automated tests to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could be exploited by attackers. We perform tests such as input validation testing, authentication and authorization testing, session management testing, and data validation testing, among others. Our experienced security professionals are trained to use a wide range of tools and techniques to identify vulnerabilities and help clients improve the security of their APIs.
