About API Security Testing

Web Services can provide direct access for hackers to critical business data. A Penetration Test hardens your API, and prevents its use as an attack vector against your organisation.

A Web Service Penetration Test is an authorised hacking attempt aimed at identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities in the architecture and configuration of a web service. The purpose of this test is to demonstrate the ways attackers can compromise a web service and gain access to an organisation’s virtual assets.

Why API Penetration Testing Required?

APIs have led to digital transformation within the cloud, IoT, and mobile and web applications. Without knowing it, the average person engages with multiple APIs every day, especially on mobile. APIs are the connective tissue responsible for transferring information between systems, both internally and externally. All too often, though, deployed APIs do not go through comprehensive security testing, if tested for security at all. Whether SOAP or REST, a poorly secured API can open security gaps for anything that it is associated with. The security of the API is just as important as the applications that it provides functions for.

API based applications may contain many security vulnerabilities like authentication vulnerabilities, Json web token related issues, business logic issues, injection vulnerabilities, transport layer encryption weakness (cryptographic issues) etc., We would like to help you to assess the API based applications effectively using in-depth manual and automated assessment methodologies, to improve the security of API enabled applications.

Our Assessment Methdology

A holistic approach to performing penetration tests that not only discovers security vulnerabilities but also finds business logic vulnerabilities along with security checklists based on industry standards, including OWASP Top Ten, PCI Compliance, etc.

Define Scope

Before an application assessment can take place, Xiarch defines a clear scope of the client. Open communication between Xiarch and the client organization is encouraged at this stage to establish a comfortable foundation from which to assess.

Information Gathering

Xiarch engineers collect as much information as they can on the target, employing a myriad of OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) tools and techniques. The assembled information will assist us with understanding the working states of the association, which permits us to evaluate the risk precisely as the engagement progresses.


At this stage, we consolidate computerized contents and instruments, among different strategies in further developed data gathering. Xiarch experts closely inspect any conceivable assault vectors. The accumulated data from this stage will be on the basis for exploitation in the upcoming stage.

Attack and Penetration

In this step, we initiate both manual & automated security scan to find all possible attack vectors & vulnerabilities. After this, we run exploits on the application to evaluate its security. We use different methods and open-source scripts and in-house tools to gain a high degree of penetration. All these are done cautiously to secure your application and its information


This is the final stage of the whole assessment process. In this stage, the Xiarch analysts aggregate all obtained information and provide the client with a thorough, comprehensive detailing of our findings. The entire report will contain a high-level analysis of all the risks along with the final report will highlight all the weaknesses and strengths present in the application.

Discussion & Remediation

Once the process is completed our team will discuss the report and find the appropriate solutions for the bugs located. After that, a comprehensive discussion will be carried out to fix these vulnerabilities . We will ensure that the changes were implemented properly and all the vulnerabilities have been fixed. The team will provide detailed closure or remediation report which reflects the more secure state of the application.
