Switching from traditional to cloud-based testing can help your QA team significantly speed up the testing process, test on a broader range of devices and platforms, and better scale the testing environment according to a project’s needs. The trick is to choose the tools that best fit your project.
Debugging is an essential part of ensuring flawless mobile application quality. However, sometimes developers have to work with applications without having access to their source code, meaning they’re unable to make apps debuggable.
Application programming interfaces, or APIs, connect the software and services we use by enabling smooth data exchange. Often, they exchange highly sensitive information: personal data, user credentials, financial details, etc. That’s why APIs are popular targets for hacking attacks — 91% of companies experienced an API security incident during 2020 according to the State of API Security report [PDF] by Salt Security.
Moving voting online can make the process more comfortable, more flexible, and accessible to more people. However, current electronic voting systems are also vulnerable to data compromise and voting result manipulations.
Reversing is complex. Yet software developers often turn to reverse engineering when faced with a challenging task: enhancing software security, making software compatible with third-party components, maintaining legacy code, and so on.
The global car sharing market is expected to grow because of government anti-pollution initiatives, increased taxi fares, and the reduced need for personal vehicles due to remote work. However, car sharing may encounter trust issues between customers and car owners along with some security concerns.
Reverse engineering can help you accomplish some of the most challenging tasks: researching malware, analyzing intellectual property rights violations, maintaining undocumented code, and enhancing the security of embedded systems. Yet this process often requires a lot of manual analysis. So is there a way to fully automate reverse engineering?
Embedded software is a popular target for hacking, since embedded systems are present in almost all modern devices. Securing embedded software requires expert development skills, as embedded devices are severely limited in the amount of code they can run, and updating security configurations after release is sometimes impossible. That’s why developers have to be extremely attentive when searching for potential vulnerabilities.
To implement functionality that allows your macOS application to access files and folders on a remote server, you usually have to use third-party solutions to create your own file system. In iOS, this issue is eliminated thanks to the File Provider extension.
Timely software modernization helps to keep software secure, efficient, and in compliance with legal requirements. But some types of modernization like refactoring require a great many resources to perform while posing a risk of introducing new bugs and vulnerabilities.
