Bad for Enterprise: Attacking BYOD Enterprise Mobile Security Solutions

by Vincent Tan Sept. 14, 2017 via www.blackhat.com submitted by belen_caty

Using the Good Technology EMS suite as an example, my talk will show that EMS solutions are largely ineffective and in some cases can even expose an organization to unexpected risks. I will show attacks against EMS protected apps on jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices, putting to rest the rebuttal that CxOs and solution vendors often give penetration testers, "We do not support jailbroken devices." I will also introduce a groundbreaking tool, Swizzler, to help penetration testers confronted with apps wrapped into EMS protections. The tool conveniently automates a large amount of attacks that allows pen-testers to bypass each of the protections that Good and similar solutions implement. In a live demonstration of Swizzler I will show how to disable tampering detection mechanisms and application locks, intercept & decrypt encrypted data, and route "secure" HTTP requests through BURP into established Good VPN tunnels to attack servers on an organization's internal network.
