WHAT:: Practical Android Security

WHEN:: April 26, 2012. 6-8pm


WHO:: Jack Mannino, nVisium Security


Building secure Android applications can be achieved with a mix of common sense, leveraging platform security features, and following secure development best practices. This presentation will focus on security "quick wins" during development and will cover techniques that can reduce the overall attack surface within Android applications.

The OWASP GoatDroid and OWASP MobiSec tools will be used throughout the presentation to demonstrate issues encountered in the real world. We will cover the attack surface for Android and highlight the most prevalent security flaws found within production applications.


Jack Mannino is the CEO of nVisium Security, an application security firm located within the Washington DC area. At nVisium, he helps to ensure that large corporations, government agencies, and software startups have the tools they need to build and maintain successful application security initiatives. He is an active Android security researcher, and has a keen interest in identifying security issues and trends on a large scale. Jack is the co-leader and founder of the OWASP Mobile Security Project. He also serves as a board member on the OWASP Northern Virginia chapter. Jack is also the lead developer for the OWASP GoatDroid Project, which is a collection of vulnerable Android applications used for training and education.
