Resources: MobiSec Distribution


MobiSec is a bootable Linux distribution that penetration testers, ethical hackers, and other information security pros can use to evaluate and analyze mobile devices, applications, and supporting infrastructures. Created by SecureIdeas, the MobiSec framework lets you test mobile environments to identify design weaknesses and vulnerabilities, all with the goal of improving security. Instead of you having to download countless tools, install them in your own environment, and then troubleshoot interoperability issues, the MobiSec team has done all of that work for you, pulling together best-of-breed free tools for mobile device and infrastructure analysis into one handy distribution.

The MobiSec Live Environment includes the following capabilities:

  • Creates a single environment for testers to leverage the best of all available open source mobile testing tools
  • Allows installation of additional tools and platforms
  • Assists the penetration tester throughout the testing process as the environment is structured and organized based on an industry-proven testing framework
  • Provides penetration testers the ability to boot the MobiSec Live Environment on any x86- or x64-based system from a DVD or USB flash drive, or run the test environment within a virtual machine

MobiSec is used in the SANS Security 575 course on mobile device security and ethical hacking to support many of its in-depth hands-on exercises. Learn More About SANS Security 575
