Voight-Kampff'ing The BlackBerry PlayBook presented at Infiltrate 2012

by Zach Lanier, Ben Nell,

Summary : "The Blackberry Playbook is RIM's first (rushed-to-market) jump into the tablet market. By all accounts, this technological investment is laying the groundwork for the next generation of RIM's popular (and reputably secure) BlackBerry handset. With TabletOS, built on QNX and a user experience built predominately on the Adobe AIR platform, the PlayBook quickly caught our eye as a viable platform to research and attack. So, that's just what we did. In this talk, we'll present our top-to-bottom attack analysis of the BlackBerry Playbook, from the OS, up to the apps, and all the glue in between."
