Android Security Design and Architecture
Submitted by jay gupta (@hackertron) on Sunday, 10 July 2016
Section: Full talk (40 minutes) Technical level: Beginner
Android is comprised of several mechanisms playing a role in security checking
and enforcement. Like any modern operating system, many of these mechanisms
interact with each other, exchanging information about subjects (apps/users), objects (other apps, files, devices), and operations to be performed (read,write, delete, and so on).
Oftentimes, enforcement occurs without incident; but occasionally, things slip through the cracks, affording opportunity for abuse.
This talk will discuss the security design and architecture of Android, setting
the stage for analyzing the overall attack surface of the Android platform.
I will cover following topics
• Android’s architecture and security model
• Package management
• User management
• Cryptography, PKI, and credential storage
• Enterprise security and Android for Work
• Device security and verified boot
• NFC and secure elements
This talk is conceptual talk so no requirements .
