Note: There were some technical issues with the AV gear so the first 10 minutes (or so) of my talk was not recorded.
When most people think of Smartphone security, they think forensics, encryption, screen locks, remote wipe, etc. This talk doesn't care about that. The New World of SmartPhone Security tackles security concerns that are not being discussed and have not been publicly disclosed. In this talk we will examine mobile to mobile attacks within cellular IP networks, the iPhone attack surface, iPhone worms, iPhone location-based gaming privacy concerns, and iPhone web application security. Proof of concept attacks, metrics gathered over the last six months, and redacted data gathered during our research will be presented.
