Topic: Mobile Device Software Security and Testing
Topic: Mobile Device Software Security and Testing Presentation Introduction: - Why we care about these devices? - How enterprises are using these devices. - Personal data stored on these devices. - What we can do depends on the functionality implemented on the device - More and more apps are found to be malicious in some way.
iPhone: - What does "jailbreaking" actually do? - Installing SSH through Cydia. - Using WinSCP to view the underlying filesystem. - Files on the file system (sqlite databases, etc.) - Proxying WiFi traffic for request/response analysis & manipulation. - Proxying 3G traffic through a VPN connection running on a linux VM (currently researching and setting up). - Where are applications located on the device? - Extracting the applications off the phone for further analysis. - How to get at the application via iTunes if the iPhone is not jailbroken.
Android: - Rooting the device (not a hands on demonstration as this is version dependent). - Setting up SSH on the device. - Using WinScp to view underlying filesystem - Proxying 3G traffic through a VPN connection running on a linux VM (currently researching and setting up). - Where are the applications located on the device? - Extracting the applications off of the phone. - Unpackaging the applications. - Decompiling the applications to gain a better understanding of what they are doing.
