Many mobile developers still believe that it’s not possible to extract information embedded inside the application bundle. However, it's not true.  

My area of interest is the reverse engineering of mobile apps. In this talk, I'll walk through some of the most common vulnerabilities on iOS apps and show how to exploit them. All these vulnerabilities have been found on real production apps of companies that have (or don't have) bug bounty program. This talk is useful for those connected with mobile app development or those who do use mobile apps to work with sensitive data.
