This session takes a look at Android security from a developer rather than a hacker's perspective. Taken from the recently published book "Bulletproof Android," we look at how to protect your Android code, how to use secure authentication in your app, how to communicate securely with any backend server and how to safeguard that server against attack. Throughout the class, we'll use real-world examples from the many audits we've done over the years to show how other developers have tried and sometimes failed to secure their code.
Godfrey is founder and president of RIIS LLC, a mobile development firm in the Detroit Metro area. He is also author of "Bulletproof Android", "Android Best Practices", "Decompiling Android" and "Decompiling Java." Godfrey has spoken at several AnDevcons as well as JavaOne, ASP-Connections, VSLive, Codemash, Code PaLOUsa, 1DevDay and many local Java and .Net user groups on a wide range of topics such as Continuous Integration, Executable Requirements and mobile security.
