code: CC-256 | version: v4.2

This informative one-day course offers a fresh look at the Android operating system from the perspectives of both user and enterprise security, and gives the Android developer a clear sense of best practices and pitfalls in application development.

The course moves from an overview of the operating system and its security features through high-level considerations, "do's and don'ts," and offers hands-on exercises in securing existing Android applications against possible hacks -- which hacks they can carry out using prepared, simulated malware operating on the Android device or emulator. In this way students get a concrete understanding of concerns and techniques including:

  • File-system security
  • Injection and cross-site attacks
  • Inter-process attacks
  • Custom permissions
  • Login practices
  • Cryptography and network communications

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the security characteristics of mobile computing, and the Android OS in particular.
  • Manage application data in a secure fashion.
  • Apply appropriate safeguards over entry points to applications, including intent filters, bound services, and broadcast receivers.
  • Use cryptography as appropriate, especially in remote communications.
  • Manage user credentials, including passwords and issued tokens.
