This defensive security talk from Shmoocon 2013 is primarily targeted towards Android developers. The speaker shares "war stories" of Android vulnerabilities and exploits to show the audience how "not to code".

He then talks about best practices and guidelines that Android developers should follow and defensive techniques that should be integrated into Secure SDLC at various stages of development.

Real-life examples show how these techniques actually help prevent exploitation. Finally, the author releases a sample "HackMe" Android app that will contain vulnerabilities that developers and testers alike will have fun taking apart while learning more about Android security.



The IG Learner app is available on Google Play.
