This really is the first update since May, wow I have been really busy.
Toorcamp (takes place as you read) has a few interesting talks on Android. I originally planed to go but didn't have time, very said about it :-(
Nordic Security Conference is a new event that takes place end of August. Nordic Sec seems to be a very mixed conference but they have some mobile related talks.
BruCON at the end of September is one of those cons I always wanted to attend once, never made it. They also have just a few mobile related talks. Mobile talks seem to overlap with Nordic Sec :-(
BreakPoint is also a new event taking place in Melbourne, Australia. This event will have more then a few mobile talks due to the people who are scheduled to speak there. Including myself ;-)
Source Seattle has a mobile talk.
Open CFPs: 29c3 this year in Hamburg not Berlin, a real bummer. hashdays in Lucerne, Switzerland.
Zeus now supports Black Berry in addition to WinMo, Android, and Symbian.
This is really interesting. I was working on countermeasures against this threat
with two of my co-workers at SecT in Berlin. Hopefully our paper gets accepted. I really hope we can
help to defend against this threat.
Personal news: I will move to Boston, MA in August to work as a Postdoctoral researcher at Northeastern University. I will continue doing mostly mobile security related work. Please ping me if you are doing similar work and are in the area. It seems like I know a bunch of people but don't actually know where they live.
I hope from now one to continue my biweekly mobile security news update.
