Elite Recognized Developer Jcase to Talk Android Security at XDA:DevCon 2013

At XDA, we get downright giddy when we see a heavily locked down device unlocked and rooted. An unlocked bootloader and rooted device opens the door for many options of custom ROMs. Without root we have no recovery, no ROMs, no kernel optimizations, and very limited other development. Most of us are guilty of just flashing away what greater minds say we need to without ever understanding what they do.

Justin Case, aka XDA Elite Recognized Developer jcase, is a mobile security researcher and the developer of many of these Android exploits. He is one of these great minds, and he will be presenting at XDA:DevCon 2013. Jcase will be discussing vulnerabilities and common security shortfalls in Android applications and firmware. He will also be walking the audience through identification of a vulnerability and development of an Android root exploit.

Being one of the great minds that understands Android security, jcase knows that the very same exploits we use to root our phones expose us and others to malicious activities such as spyware, bots, keyloggers, and other forms of malware. At XDA:DevCon, jcase will discuss past vulnerabilities in applications and firmware, as well as how they are mitigated today. He will teach the audience about some of the tools and methods used in identifying vulnerabilities. Finally, he will be speaking about application and firmware security, citing and explaining common mistakes, and how we can mitigate them. To end the presentation, jcase will publish and discuss a brand new root exploit for the LG Optimus series of phones.
