Use certificate pinning


Mobile applications should use certificate pinning to validate the endpoints. If a pinset is used, up to 2 certificates should be allowed.


Certificate pinning establishes that the mobile application only connects to servers with valid and trusted certificates. This helps to protect against scenarios where an attacker might attempt to use a fraudulent or compromised certificate to intercept or manipulate the communication. Additionally, the application will accept connections from servers that present any of the specified certificates in the pinset.
