The expected benefits for someone attending this: 1. A deeper understanding of the internals and security model 2. A survey of current threats with real-life examples 3. Reverse engineering, decompiling, application spoofing 4. Learning secure coding guidelines 5. Studying prevention techniques


Attacks on Android phones are becoming common, especially due to the increasing media attention. We hope to detail the security model, provide a survey of the current threats as well as guidelines describing how best to verify whether an application is malicious or not.


An open mind.
