Protect Your Mobile Apps
Against Man-in-the-Middle Attacks

In Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks, the attacker places themselves in between the mobile application and the application server using many different techniques. MitM attacks allow bad actors to access or steal sensitive mobile app data, conduct phishing scams, deliver malware, and impersonate trusted entities. Learn how easy it is to prevent Man-in-the-Middle attacks and ensure the integrity and authenticity of mobile connections. 

Top Threats Resulting from MitM Attacks

Session Hijacking

Attackers use malicious proxies, combined with forged or self-signed certificates to intercept tokens or sessions, redirect network traffic, and masquerade as trusted entities on either or both sides of the connection.

Packet Injection

Attackers use packet injection to spoof the communication channel and read, harvest, steal or modify the data in transit, undermining the integrity of the data and communication session.

Packet Sniffing and SSL Stripping

Attackers use packet sniffing to harvest or steal sensitive data. They also modify HTTPS-based requests to the insecure HTTP equivalent. As a result, all traffic becomes unencrypted, easy to read and steal.

Prevent Man-in-the-Middle attacks on your mobile apps today. Appdome is a no-code mobile app security platform that allows developers to add MitM prevention to Android and iOS apps, instantly without coding.  Start your 5-day free trial and see how easy it is to add SSL/TLS validation, certificate pinning, and more to prevent session hijacking, botnet attacks, credential stuffing, and other network-based threats to mobile apps and connections.

Prevent Man-in-the-Middle Attacks

Ensures a secure communication channel between mobile apps and the application servers. It provides a multi-level defense against MitM and other network-based attacks.

Protect Android & iOS apps with secure certificate pinning. Prevent MitM attacks and other network-based attacks such as Session Hijacking, SSL Stripping, and Evil Twin Attacks. Block toolkits such as Charles Proxy, BURP Suite, NMAP, MitM Proxy, Wireshark, Metasploit and more.

Secure Certificate Pinning

Prevents mobile apps from connecting to compromised servers or endpoints. Encrypts and securely stores the certificate(s) of known trusted servers in the app and validates the certificate before the connection is established. If there is a certificate mismatch, the session is denied or dropped.

Validation methods include Chain Evaluation, Strict Evaluation and Pinning. Stop SSL Certificate Bypass attacks.

Stop malicious bots & Credential Stuffing

Protects the mobile backend by preventing compromised mobile clients or malicious endpoints from connecting to and/or reaching protected hosts and back end servers.

Combine secure client certificates and Appdome's ONEShield™ Anti-Tampering and TOTALCode™ Obfuscation to ensure that fake apps, credential stuffing and other automated network attacks will be blocked. Stop Credential Stuffing attacks from fake, compromised or malicious Android and iOS apps, emulators and more.

Secure Mobile Communication Sessions

Appdome's MitM stops attackers from gaining control over the session before the TLS handshake completes. When an application initiates a handshake with the server, Appdome inspects the traffic to validate the integrity and authenticity of certificates, CAs, as well as session state information, and more.

This inspection occurs before a would-be attacker can take control over the session or insert an altered certificate as part of the initial handshake.
