Thick Client


RootSecured’s Approach to Thick Client Security Testing

A thick client, also known as a fat client or rich client, is a type of software application that is designed to run on a client's computer, rather than on a remote server. Thick clients are typically large, complex programs that perform many functions locally, and require significant resources and processing power on the client side. At RootSecured, we specialize in the nuanced art of thick client pentesting, addressing the unique challenges posed by these applications, from local processing vulnerabilities to server-side security issues.


Understanding Thick Client Architectures:

  • Two-Tier Architecture: Direct communication between the client application and the database server characterizes this setup. RootSecured evaluates the security implications of this direct link, ensuring robust protections are in place.

  • Three-Tier Architecture: This more layered approach, involving client, application server, and database server, adds a layer of security by isolating the database from the client. Our testing strategies are tailored to verify secure communications across all tiers, leveraging HTTP/HTTPS protocols where applicable.

Our Methodical Testing Process:

  • Reconnaissance: Gathering essential information about the thick client application’s architecture and functionalities.

  • Planning and Analysis: Crafting a bespoke testing strategy that aligns with the specific architecture and potential threat vectors.

  • Vulnerability Detection: Utilizing both automated tools and manual testing to unearth vulnerabilities.

  • Exploitation: Safely exploiting identified vulnerabilities to assess their potential impact.

  • Initial Reporting and Remediation: Providing a preliminary report followed by detailed remediation strategies.

  • Patching and Confirmatory Testing: Assisting with the implementation of fixes and verifying their effectiveness.

  • Closure and Comprehensive Reporting: Offering a final, executive report detailing vulnerabilities, actions taken, and current security posture.

  • Protecting sensitive data from potential breaches
