Although you can get almost any security tool imaginable if you jailbreak your iPhone, we were curious what was out there for non-jailbroken iPhones. Given that my iPhone is setup to be my primary home and work device, I don’t want risk jailbreaking it. We’ve searched around on iTunes and across the interwebs for anything we could find and below is a list of what I came up with so far. To make the list more manageable we’ve tried to categorize them per the ISSAF framework. If an app fell into more then one group, we placed it in the earliest phase. With some exceptions we also didn’t include ones that haven’t been updated in the last year. So here are our picks for “official” iPhone apps for security professionals.
