Cleveland Chapter OWASP Meeting
Featuring Jack Mannino
Thursday, June 7th from Noon – 2 p.m.
SecureState:23340 Miles Road, Cleveland, OH 44128


Presentation: Practical Android Security



Building secure Android applications can be achieved with a mix of common sense, leveraging platform security features, and following secure development best practices. This presentation will focus on security “quick wins” during development and will cover techniques that can reduce the overall attack surface within Android applications.

The OWASP GoatDroid and OWASP MobiSec tools will be used throughout the presentation to demonstrate issues encountered in the real world. We will cover the attack surface for Android and highlight the most prevalent security flaws found within production applications.
