MobiSec

The MobiSec Live Environment Mobile Testing open source project is good for testing mobile environments, including devices, apps and supporting infrastructure.

It allows users to test their mobile environments to identify design weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

Testers get access to a host of open-source mobile testing tools, as well as the ability to install additional tools and platforms. Using a live environment allows pen testers to boot the MobiSec Live Environment on any Intel-based system from a DVD or USB flash drive, or run the test environment within a virtual machine.

The MobiSec Live Environment is maintained as an open source project on Source Forge, located at http://sourceforge.net/p/mobisec, and can be downloaded as an ISO by clicking on the Download link above.
