Content

This course is a seminar-style class which focuses on security aspects of mobile devices. We study the security mechanisms of smartphones and show how to employ them to protect sensitive information. Based on that, we analyze mobile applications regarding security-critical deficiencies, examine platform and application vulnerabilities and discuss how they can be exploited by attackers. Among other aspects, the course aims to provide answers to the following questions: - Which security aspects are provided by current mobile platforms, how are they designed, and how shall they be employed (or not)? - Where to store private keys and data on mobile devices? Which vulnerarbilities to consider? - What does a company have to consider when working with smartphones? - Is a / my digital idenity secure on a smartphone? - How can the hard- and software of smartphones be attacked? Does jailbreaking have an impact on the security? - How to eavesdrop a mobile device? Can mobile networks be attacked?
