Denim Group at BSides Austin 2013: Building Secure Mobile Apps and Software Security Implementation Patterns

BSides Texas Logo w color hat
I will be up at BSides Austin 2013 in a couple of weeks. Thursday March 21st I will be giving a short training class from 4:00pm through 6:00pm titled “Developing Secure Mobile Applications.” The brief abstract is:

This course provides an introduction to security for mobile applications. It walks through a basic threat model for a mobile application. This threat model is then used as a framework for making good decisions about designing and building applications as well as for testing the security of existing applications. Examples are provided for both iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android platforms and sample code is provided to demonstrate mobile security assessment techniques.

We’ve only got two hours so I can’t teach you everything about building and testing secure mobile apps (assuming I even knew everything about the subject…) but I can help make you smarter. Should be a good time.

Also on Friday March 22nd from 1:00pm to 2:00pm I will be giving a talk titled “Implementation Patterns for Software Security Programs” The abstract for this talk is:

Every organization’s software security program implementation is different, but patterns exist providing guidance to those looking to plan for their program rollouts. This presentation covers several aspects of this process including the “ownership” of the software security program as well as implementation of static code analysis, dynamic application testing and developer security education.

This should be a fun one because we talk through war stories of things we’ve seen be successful as well as things we’ve seen go horribly wrong.
