Hey Brent!

I think this is a great idea! Please go ahead. Seems like a huge link to the identity topic and could help us out here.

Thanks so much for this!

Interesting! Check out the "Top Ten Mobile Controls" tab.

Here are the headers in the document:

1. Identify and protect sensitive data on the mobile device<https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Mobile_Security_Project#section_control_1>

2. Handle password credentials securely on the device

3. Ensure sensitive data is protected in transit

4. Implement user authentication,authorization and session management correctly

5. Keep the backend APIs (services) and the platform (server) secure

6. Secure data integration with third party services and applications

7. Pay specific attention to the collection and storage of consent for the collection and use of the user's data

8. Implement controls to prevent unauthorized access to paid-for resources (wallet, SMS, phone calls etc.) Risks:

9. Ensure secure distribution/provisioning of mobile applications

10. Carefully check any runtime interpretation of code for errors

Dear all,

Concerning security, I was talking to someone who could put me in touch with someone from OWASP. https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Main_Page.

For example, here is the OWASP Mobile Security Project

Would it be helpful to pursue this further?
