The Mobile Application Security Testing (MAST) initiative aims to create a safer cloud ecosystem for mobile applications by creating systematic approaches to application testing and vetting that helps integrate and introduce quality control and compliance to mobile application development and management. This initiative hopes that more research into mobile application security vetting and testing will help reduce the risk and security threats that organizations and individuals expose themselves to using mobile applications. Implementation of MAST will result in clearly articulated recommendations and best practices in the use of mobile applications. Mobile application security testing and vetting processes utilized through MAST involve both static and dynamic analyses to evaluate security issues of mobile applications for platforms such as Android, iOS and Windows.
