Mobile Security News Update February 2013

    CanSecWest coming up in March has started posting talks: Doug DePerry @dugdep & Tom Ritter @TomRittervg - CDMA Femptocell Traffic Interception and Remote Mobile Phone Cloning, Rahul Sasi @fb1h2s - SMS to Meterpreter, Fuzzing USB Modems, Stephan Esser @i0n1c will be talking about iOS, Joshua J. Drake @jduck1337i - Tackling the Android Challenge. In addition to mobile security there is another super interesting talk about embedded system security: @beist will be talking about Samsung SmartTVs.

    SyScan Singapore is coming up in April and also posted talks. There are not too many mobile talks but all talks sound pretty good. Stefan Esser ( @i0n1c ) - Mountain Lion / iOS Vulnerability Garage Sale. I will also show some stuff I've been working on in the past month during a lightning talk, all brand new!

    SourceBoston also in April: Protecting sensitive information on iOS devices David Schuetz, Attacking NFC Mobile Wallets: Where Trust Breaks Down Max Sobell.

    Infiltrate Matias Soler - The Chameleon: A cellphone-based USB impersonator, Stephen Lawler & Stephen Ridley - Advanced Exploitation of Mobile/Embedded Devices: The ARM Microprocessor.


Personal notes: I'm going to be in San Francisco during RSA, ping me if you want to chat. I'm also going to be at CanSecWest, just attending this year. Further I'm going to SyScan. I also plan to be around SourceBoston but unfortunately not attending (ticket prices vs. university etc, I'm not complaining).
