Mark Murphy will be presenting his talk remotely for us (you still have to come).
"Network Security Configuration" by Mark Murphy
"Use SSL" is now somewhere between "wear sunscreen" and "visit the dentist twice per year" in terms of things that are considered really good ideas... that not everybody actually does. Partly, that's because there are well-known edge cases with SSL in mobile app development that we keep tripping over, such as Android not recognizing your self-signed SSL certificate. Network security configuration is one way to help alleviate some of these problems, plus tighten up security beyond what stock SSL support would offer (e.g., to help prevent MITM attacks). In this presentation -- delivered live from a remote location over SSL -- Mark Murphy will explain what network security configuration is, how to use it to solve common SSL problems and enhance SSL security, and what to do about the elephant in the room (network security configuration
being new to Android 7.0).
