Common Security Pitfalls for Mobile Apps in the Enterprise
Track: Taming MobileLocation:Grand Ballroom B/CAbstract:
In this talk, we'll deep dive common pitfalls app developers make, showing the top 5 app developers' mistakes we've encountered from a variety of apps, including some of the most popular ones. We will examine the mistakes in technical detail, highlighting risks from both the consumer and developer perspective, by looking at the code that creates the behavior, and the actual observed behavior from dynamic analysis.
These mistakes often lead to risky app behaviors, and with corporate environments becoming increasingly aware of the apps their employees bring inside their work place, lead to the creation of policies that blacklist apps that contain risky behaviors. Apps of all kinds, even unrelated to the work environment, can have a negative effect on the user if they misbehave. We'll close the discussion on how to avoid these common mistakes for app developers and how to be more aware of apps in your corporate environment and how they behave.
