Searched over web, however could not find much info on security analysis tools for iOS6.

Can somebody point me to the security analysis (Static Code Analysis & Pen Testing) tools for iOS6?

  • "Shopping lists", or requests for product recommendations, are not really a good fit on SE. Perhaps you'd want to rephrase your question along the lines of "how does one go about testing iOS apps" (more methodology-focused). – AviD Nov 5 '12 at 16:52
  • Its very sad to see the question being closed. With due respect, I have knowledge of how to do normal testing of iOS apps, as well as perform security testing, especially on iOS5. My question was very specific - wanted to know the tools which support iOS6. – TheCottonSilk Nov 10 '12 at 16:43
  • I understand your point, however it has long since been discussed, hashed, and rehashed, many times over - long term, requests for product recommendations just don't work well. You could also pop in to the Information Security Chat and have an open discussion there. – AviD Nov 11 '12 at 7:20

I know this tool, but I almost didn't use it, might worth a check:



The main areas of focus while assessing the security of iPhone applications (iOS6 and less) are -

  • Application traffic analysis
  • Privacy Issues
  • Local Data Storage
  • Caching
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Unmanaged code
  • URL Schemes
  • Push Notifications
