MobSF: Mobile Security Framework

Mobile Security Framework is an intelligent, all-in-one open source mobile application (Android/iOS) automated pen-testing framework capable of performing static and dynamic analysis. We’ve been depending on multiple tools to carry out reversing, decoding, debugging, code review, and pen-test and this process requires a lot of effort and time. Mobile Security Framework can be used for effective and fast security analysis of Android and iOS Applications. It supports binaries (APK & IPA) and zipped source code.

Requirements:

  • Python 2.7 
  • Oracle JDK 1.7 or above 
  • Oracle VirtualBox
  • iOS IPA binary analysis requires MAC OS X and you need to install Command-line tools for MAC OS X 
  • Hardware Requirements: Min 4GB RAM and 5GB HDD.
On Linux and Mac, install Oracle Java 1.7 or above and make it the default one.

Installation:

Tested on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Ubuntu, OSX Mavericks
  • Windows: Extract the MobSF compressed file to C:MobSF
  • Mac: Extract MobSF compressed file to /Users/[username]/MobSF
  • Linux: Extract MobSF compressed file to /home/[username]/MobSF

Running MobSF

python manage.py runserver
If you need to run on a specific port number try
python manage.py runserver PORT_NO
If everything goes right, you will get an output like the one below.
