Learn the 3 Easy Steps to Validate TLS/SSL Certificates in Android Apps. Protect data-in-transit by preventing MitM attacks and session hijacking.
This Knowledge Base article provides step by step instructions to use Appdome’s no-code mobile security platform to prevent MitM attacks on Android and iOS apps, all without any coding.
Preventing MitM attacks and malicious proxies is a critical cyber-defense strategy. Mobile MitM attacks target the connection between a mobile app and the server it connects to. Hackers use several methods to achieve MitM attacks, including attaching proxies to insecure network or wifi connections, exploiting stale session IDs, phishing, modifying DNS, and more. You can use Appdome’s No-code security platform to build SSL Certificate Validation into any Android and iOS app without coding.
Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. Customers simply upload an Android or iOS app, select Trusted Session Inspection, and click “Build My App”. There is no requirement to use a VPN, proxy, or software-specific detection mechanisms inside the app. The Appdome technology adds MiTM attack detection and malicious proxy prevention and relevant standards, frameworks to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.
Trusted Session is part of the Appdome Mobile Security Suite. It ensures that all mobile sessions, connections, and certificates are valid and trusted at all times. Appdome’s malicious proxy protection and Man-in-the-Middle attack protection works by detecting if a session is intercepted by an unauthorized or unknown party and redirected to a malicious server or proxy. This feature, alone or in combination with others, is a great way to detect and prevent Man-in-the-Middle attacks and other session hijacking techniques.
You can also combine multiple features or services in a single Fusion Set and build them all to your app in minutes. For example, you can combine Data at Rest (DAR) encryption, MitM attack prevention, malicious proxy prevention, and secure certificate pinning (among countless other combinations) for a layered security approach.
Appdome is a no-code mobile app security platform designed to add security features, like Certificate Validation to Android and iOS apps. This KB shows mobile developers, DevSec and security professionals how to use Appdome’s simple ‘click to build’ user interface to quickly and easily Prevent MitM attacks and session hijacking and Protect data-in-transit.
Please follow these 3 easy steps step-by-step instructions to add Appdome Trusted Session to any mobile app in seconds.
Appdome SSL Certificate Validation prevention is enabled automatically by default when you implement Appdome Trusted Session (via MitM Prevention).
Appdome’s no-code mobile app security platform offers mobile developers, DevSec and security professionals a convenient and reliable way to protect Android and iOS apps with SSL Certificate Validation. When a user clicks “Build My App,” Appdome leverages a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of security plugins, and an adaptive code generation engine that matches the correct Certificate Validation plugins to the development environment, frameworks, and methods in each app.
Congratulations! Your app is now secured with SSL Certificate Validation.
