Scott MCEI had a great time at MCE conference in Warsaw, Poland in April. I’d recommend MCE as a mobile conference I attended both Android and iOS talks and there were all high quality. Also all the people I met were very friendly and spoke great english. I was introduced to Polish vodka and some tasty polish food. Thanks to the organisers for inviting me and I hope to attend again.

In this presentation I share a story of a recent Android app I developed where app security wasn’t prioritised and how I still provided a minimal level of security to protect the app’s users and developer reputation.

Last week I attended the first Blackhat mobile security summit in London. It was a great chance for us to learn from security specialists.

I co-wrote this article to highlights some of our favourite and key takeaways.

  • New Android Security Rewards Program
  • State of malware on Android/mobile
  • Samsung / SwiftKey Zip Traversal Hack
  • SSL validation (or lack of) still one of most common app vulns
  • “erase everything” = not everything?
  • Windows phone 8 exploits and security faux pas

What’s in the talk:

  • Encryption and key management on Android

Plus a bunch of other tips I’ve picked up along the way.
