Mobile Application Security
With over 3.1 million applications in the Apple AppStore and Google Play Store, and more than 7.5 billion mobile subscribers in the world, mobile application security has been shoved into the forefront of many organizations. One of the newly added features on mobile devices is that of a fingerprint reader. Both iOS and Android provide access to the hardware fingerprint reader through APIs. The fingerprint APIs can be used correctly and incorrectly. Join Jack as he shows how the APIs work, how you can use them correctly and incorrectly, and how a malicious actor may attack the fingerprint APIs. This talk will involve code, tools and iOS and Android test applications to demo.
Jack is the CEO at nVisium, a company focused on solutions to make security and education scale in fast-paced software development organizations. He has developed and contributed to industry standards for secure web and mobile development including the OWASP Mobile Security Project. Jack presents his research at technology conferences around the world, and regularly contributes to many open source projects. In his spare time, he enjoys digging into new frameworks, researching Android internals, and writes most of his (good) code in Scala.
