DeepSec 2013 Video: Cracking Open “Secure” Android Containers

René Pfeiffer/ January 19, 2014/ Conference

Cell phones, especially the smart ones, become more and more part of your company’s infrastructure. These devices accumulate software (a.k.a. „apps“), authentication tokens, passwords, and a lot of data worthy of protection. While smartphone systems have their own protection mechanisms, not every one of them might work reliably. Chris John Riley explains in his presentation held at DeepSec 2013 why „secure“ containers on Android phones might not be as secure as advertised. Please make sure that you show this presentation to anyone riding the „BYOD“ train. You might want to rethink what you let your users put on their phones.
