Abstract: This course provides an introduction to security for mobile and smartphone applications. It walks through a basic threat model for a smartphone application. This threat model is then used as a framework for making good decisions about designing and building applications as well as for testing the security of existing applications. Examples are provided for both iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android platforms and sample code is provided to demonstrate mobile security assessment techniques. Particular emphasis will be on the unique security challenges that developing software for mobile devices represent, comparing mobile software security concepts to those in the web application world.
