Talk 1. An Application Pen Tester’s Intro to Android Internals
This talk will be a grey-box exploration of the Android OS that will be light on slides and heavier on demonstration. We will take some of the most popular tools used in assessing an Android app and point it at the OS instead to explore Internals from a black box perspective. For illustrative purposes, where appropriate, we will dig into Android Source Code to get a bit of a deeper understanding of what is going on under the hood.
