Securing mobile applications

Mobile applications are everywhere: no matter if you are using them to access your favorite social networks, or to plan meetings, we cannot live without them any more.

This puts a lot of pressure into making sure that these applications are securely developed: once they are “in the wild”, and being used by thousands (or millions) of customers, any mistake can cost a lot.

This presentation will show some common, and some not that common mobile vulnerabilities that Bojan’s team has found in last several years during mobile application penetration testing projects.

We will see what needs to be done to make sure that a mobile application securely handles data in transit, as well as in rest.
