Thick Client VAPT

Sold by: Intect Category:
Thick client applications are generally more complicated and customized than web or mobile applications, so they need a specific approach when it comes to a penetration test. Our team discovers what technology is being used at client and server end, figures out application functionality and behavior, identify all entry points for user input, understand the core security mechanisms, and then proceed to find vulnerabilities.

Report Abuse



Thick client pentesting involves both local and server-side processing and often uses proprietary protocols for communication.
Simple automated assessment scanning is not sufficient and testing thick client applications requires a lot of patience and a methodical approach. Moreover, the process often requires specialized tools and custom testing setup.



Two-Tier Architecture

In two-tier architecture, the thick client application implements client-to-server communication. The application is installed on the client computer and, in order to work, will need to communicate with a database server. For example, imagine an HR application that was installed on the client computer and, in order to retrieve the employees’ information, communicates directly with the HR database server.


Three-Tier Architecture

In three-tier architecture, the client communicates with an application server, which in turn talks to the database in a manner similar to a regular web application. The most common communication method in these applications may be carried out using HTTP/HTTPS.

Three-tier architecture has a security advantage over two-tier architecture, because it prevents the end-user from communicating directly with the database server
