Course Overview

Android is an open platform for mobile devices such as handsets and tablets. It has a large variety of security features to make developing secure software easier; however, it is also missing certain security aspects that are present in other hand-held platforms. This advanced course gives a comprehensive overview of these features putting an equal emphasis on both native code issues and Java security, allowing a deeper analysis of the vulnerabilities, attacks, protection techniques and counter attacks in three days.

Course Description:

Android is an open platform for mobile devices such as handsets and tablets. It has a large variety of security features to make developing secure software easier; however, it is also missing certain security aspects that are present in other hand-held platforms. This advanced course gives a comprehensive overview of these features putting an equal emphasis on both native code issues and Java security, allowing a deeper analysis of the vulnerabilities, attacks, protection techniques and counter attacks in three days.
The course is recommended to those developers who extensively use both Java and native code to develop complex Android applications.
