How preventing SSL Session Reuse protects Android & iOS Apps
Mobile apps often store authentication information, credentials, tokens, or other artifacts to maintain state and improve the user experience. Whatever the reason, it’s prudent to take measures to protect this valuable information because stale sessions can also be reused and reclaimed by hackers and used in their attacks.

Appdome detects and prohibits session reuse and reclaimed SessionID for stale TLS sessions so that hackers cannot reuse them in their attacks.
