Mobile Hacking on Android - March 1, 2014
Dawn Isabel & James Fitts
Mobile applications are not as secure as you think as they contain mobile specific issues in addition to the common web and desktop applications. Bring your own device (BYOD) presents further risks to organizations' computing environment leading to data loss and internal compromises.
This workshop will concentrate on the Android platform. Dawn and James will show you how to perform mobile security testing, starting off by teaching you how to build a proper Android testing environment. Then into the fun stuff - installing and assessing applications for vulnerabilities.
