Smart Phone, Dumb Apps: How the Bad Guys View Your Mobile Applications


Companies are building increasingly sophisticated smartphone applications for platforms such as the Apple iPhone and Google Android. Many of these applications are constructed without fully considering the associated security implications of their deployment. Breaches can impact both app users as well as those distributing the application as attackers take advantage of expanded access to sensitive data and network services. In this talk Denim Group CTO, Dan Cornell, will discuss emerging threats associated with deploying smartphone apps. He will begin by looking at a threat model for a typical mobile application and then walking through an analysis of an example application from an attacker's perspective. He will show how to extract information from mobile applications and use that information to launch attacks against app users and app distribution companies.
