Mobile Applications & Proxy Shenanigans presented at AppSecUSA 2012

by Dan Amodio, David Lindner,

Summary : With over 5 Billion mobile devices presently in use, mobile applications enable new threats and attacks which introduce significant risks to organizations. As such, it is imperative that we perform our normal application security procedures on all mobile applications, including pen testing and code reviews. Pen testing mobile applications has proven to be difficult when typical application security testing practices are employed. Proxying mobile traffic for examination and modification is anything but straightforward and every application presents its own, unique challenges. David and Dan will explain the issues that arise when trying to proxy mobile application traffic. Join Dan and Dave as they provide guidance and a roadmap so that you may overcome these obstacles.
