This month Gilad Pagi will give a talk on Android Security. As a popular open source operating system, Android faces a great security challenge. It must act as a secure platform while revealing its code to the public eyes. Therefore, Android implements various security concepts and mechanisms. In this talk we will go over the main security concepts and demonstrate the implementation: Android sandboxing, Permission architecture, Application packaging and signing, Shell access capabilities, and Implications of "rooting" a device.
Food will be provided by Arbormoon Software at 6:30, with the presentation starting at 7:00.
