How To Not Build Android Apps - Jack Mannino
Android is quickly becoming the playground of choice for the bad guys. The Android Market has been notoriously polluted with malicious applications, and the Android ecosystem is fragmented beyond belief. On top of these problems, lots of developers are throwing common sense out the window when creating Android applications. Things can only get better from here (hopefully).
This presentation will expose some of the many ways these issues combine to make the world a much scarier place. We will focus on real-world examples of vulnerabilities within Android apps that will make most attendees say WTF?!? Be prepared to be angry, frightened, and sad…all at the same time. Live demonstrations of each issue will be provided as well as code samples pinpointing the problems.
Attendees will be exposed to the overall attack surface for Android applications, and will learn about the steps developers can take to do a better job at protecting them.
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 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.
