Breaking Android Apps for Fun and Profit - Bill Sempf Derbycon 2016 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Breaking Android Apps for Fun and Profit
Bill Sempf
Derbycon 2016

The massive growth of internet connected smart devices like phones and toasters is truly amazing, but it also expands an attack surface for those dead-set on stealing your stuff. Making sure an Android app does what it says - and ONLY what it says - is a life skill these days. Bill will use his experience doing vulnerability analysis on Android phone apps and walk you through the process of taking an app apart. No slides, just a walkthrough from 'look here's an app in the store' to 'here's the spot in the code where it does (or doesn't) do what it says.'

Bill Sempf is a software security architect. His breadth of experience includes business and technical analysis, software design, development, testing, server management and maintenance, and security. In his 20 years of professional experience he has participated in the creation of well over 200 applications for large and small companies, managed the software infrastructure of two Internet service providers, coded complex software happily in every environment imaginable, tested the security of all natures of applications and APIs, and made mainframes talk to cell phones. He is the author of C# 5 All in One for Dummies and Windows 8 Programming with HTML5 For Dummies; a coauthor of Effective Visual Studio.NET and many other books, a frequent contributor to industry magazines; and has recently been an invited speaker for the ACM and IEEE, BlackHat, CodeMash, DerbyCon, BSides, DevEssentials, the International XML Web Services Expo and the Association of Information Technology Professionals. Bill also serves on the board of the Columbus branch of the Open Web Application Security Project, and is the Administrative Director of Locksport International.
