6:00pm Talk: Security Enhancements for Android
This talk will focus on using Security Enhancements for Android (SE for Android) to secure Android devices. In particular the talk will focus on using SE for Android to secure the GS4 device for use by the government. Some background into SELinux and SE for Android will be covered as part of this talk.
Bring your questions and your curiosity, so we can make this a highly interactive session.
Joshua Brindle: Joshua has twelve years of professional experience in development for government, academic and open source software focusing on security in Linux. Joshua has contributed to numerous open source projects both as a project maintainer and as a developer. His work can be found on all SELinux systems and nearly all Linux systems. Joshua's recent experience focuses on building secure mobile devices using technologies such as Security Enhanced Android and mobile device and application management.
Brandon Whalen: Brandon has over ten years of experience in design, development, testing and analysis of secure systems. The majority of this experience was gained building secure systems for government use. In addition to building secure systems Brandon has also led the accreditation process of numerous successfully deployed solutions. Brandon's research focuses primarily on Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux), Mandatory Access Control (MAC), Operating System Security, Application Security, and secure pipeline architectures.
Parking: Metered parking is available inside the Glen garage next to the building. Metered parking is also available on Cross Campus Drive which is also adjacent to the building (just use the pedestrian bridge to enter at the third floor).
