Security Testing Services

The gaming market today has become a 100-Billion-dollar industry. The success of a video game is determined by its performance during the peak load time, security for user profiles and authentication while performing transactions.

iXie insists Security Testing needs to be fully integrated throughout the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and a delivery process to detect vulnerabilities at an early stage.

We at iXie offer an effective solution to reduce your security risks by using automated tools and Manual Enumeration. The security testing focuses on:

Information Gathering

Understanding the game technology stack

Test planning and setting up the environment

Test Execution for Video Games

Executing the game using automated tools and manual enumeration.

Checking for known vulnerabilities using manual enumerations like

Injection flaws

Landing page scripting

Broken access control

Improper error handling

Session management

Privilege escalation

Password complexity

Form tampering

Security Testing Tool Used

Focus Group Testing

Focus groups are conducted to ensure that the game is reviewed from an end user perspective. It is useful to gather feedback from various users and see if the game can reach out to a broader audience. The following are usually surveyed in focus groups:

Age Based Opinion

Gender Based Opinion

Game Immersiveness

Difficulty

Ease of Use (UX Elements)

Game Progression

Test Automation

Increased frequencies of online updates/release cycles of game updates/patches make “regression automation” a must. It also generates remarkable challenges for the QA team. To get it done with reduced time and cost is the primary concern of many video game development firms.

iXie’s Offshore Game Test Lab adopts the appropriate framework for optimal automation. Typical elements of the Test Automation Framework include:

Test script modularity

Test library architecture

Data-driven testing

Keyword-driven or Table-driven testing

Hybrid test automation

Performance Testing

Here at iXie, we focus on the following Performance tests:

Load Testing

We perform two types of load testing: Server side and Client side. This helps to optimize the performance of the client which improves latency and capacity of the server.

Stress Testing

We can accommodate stress testing for a specified period of time with 300 physical devices/hardware. We have successfully executed this service with varying timelines, users, devices, and focus areas.

Spike Testing

We use tools to emulate users beyond the server capacity for short periods of time to record the stability.

Endurance Testing

We introduce an expected amount of load over a long period of time to check the behavior of the system.

Scalability Testing

We determine the server’s capability to scale up in terms of user load supported, the number of transactions, data volume etc.
