Automating mobile security testing with mobile CI/CD and DevOps

Automating mobile security testing within a CI/CD and DevOps environment can help improve the efficiency, speed, and reliability of security testing processes.

Here’s an overview of how you can automate mobile security testing in such a setup:

  1. Research and choose appropriate tools that can integrate into your CI/CD pipeline. Some popular tools for mobile security testing include NowSecure, Guardsquare, Snyk, Oversecured, and Mobile Security Framework (MobSF). Ensure that the tools chosen support automation and can be easily integrated into your development and deployment processes.
  2. Integrate the mobile security testing process into your CI/CD pipeline. Typically, this involves adding security testing stages to your pipeline, such as pre-commit hooks, build stages, and post-deployment verification.
  3. Leverage mobile emulators and simulators that replicate various device configurations and environments...
