** Description **

In this talk we will cover the basics of Android App Security. We will first start with an introduction and motivation, talking about why do you need to care about app security, what are the important things to protect, and try to understand the motivation an attacker might have to hack your application. After that we will move on to more technical details, and we will cover the things you (as a developer) can do to protect your applications against the most common security threads. This includes secure networking, user data protection, root detection (and understanding the effects of a rooted device), IP protection, etc.
