Static analysis for mobile application

Here we have a simple tool to do the code level analysis of android applications. I found out this tool during my research for android application testing. The tool does not give an end 2 end analysis of the application but a few security bits about the application like security permissions. The solution a freeware with little functionality.

Let’s get started.


  • JDK 1.7+
  • Python 2.7
  • MOBSF bundle :

Install the requirements with a single command:-

C:\Python27\Scripts\pip.exe install -r requirements.txt


Once the installation is complete run the MOBSF server with the below command:

python runserver


Now open the browser and point it to


Now upload the application and you will get the analysis report in a few moments.


MOBSF can also be used for performing the dynamic analysis as well .. Explore it.!!
