The course is intended to provide a better understanding of the emerging trends and threats in the mobile space. Students will be introduced to multiple smartphone technologies and development environments. They will have opportunity to inspect / audit mobile apps, circumvent operating systems, leverage mobile forensics and conduct / witness network based attacks.

Student Requirements, experience/expertise

  • Knowledge of Web hacking techniques
  • Some coding experience would be helpful
  • Not required, but students are highly encouraged to bring their own lab smartphones and use at their own risk. Though unlikely, one such risk is that the device may get 'bricked' in a lab exercise and may not function ever again. Caution will be given for specific labs. (No guts / no glory)
  • Mac, Linux and Windows experience helpful

Student Requirements, equipment/software students must furnish (be very specific)
