Kevin Mahaffey, Anthony Lineberry & John Hering: Is Your Phone Pwned?
Milano Ballroom 1-2-3-4
About: The world has never been more connected. Over a billion mobile devices ship every year, five times the number of PCs in the same period. The iPhone and Android have accelerated the mass adoption of smart devices, mobile applications, and high speed mobile networks. Meanwhile, mobile devices are now a material target: they contain sensitive personal and corporate data, access privileged networks, and routinely perform financial transactions. The question remains, how do we keep these devices safe?
Learn about how to detect vulnerabilities on mobile devices, exploitation techniques, how the security architecture of major mobile platforms work, and how to protect your mobile device(s) in the threat landscape of a constantly evolving mobile world. We'll be demonstrating a new mobile device vulnerability (we're also providing a hotfix tool) and analyzing other vulnerabilities that affect major mobile platforms, one of which is already being actively exploited in the wild. To top it off, we will be releasing our 'Sniper' mobile fuzzing framework, a tool specifically designed to fuzz mobile platforms that includes support for major file formats and protocols typically present on mobile devices.
