Book Preface

The launch of the Apple iPhone in 2007 started a new era in the world of mobile devices and applications. Google’s Android platform has emerged as a serious player in the mobile devices market, and by 2012, more Android devices were being sold than iPhones. With mobile devices becoming mainstream, we have seen the evolution of threats against them. Android’s popularity has brought it attention from the “bad guys,” and we have seen attacks against the platform on the uptick.

About the Book

In this book, we analyze the Android platform and applications in the context of security concerns and threats. This book is targeted towards anyone who is interested in learning about Android security or the strengths and weaknesses of this platform from a security perspective. We describe the Android OS and application architecture and then proceed to review security features provided by the platform. We then describe methodology for analyzing and security testing the platform and applications. Towards the end, we cover implications of Android devices in the enterprise environment as well as steps to harden devices and applications. Even though the book focuses on the Android platform, many of these issues and principles can be applied to other leading platforms as well.
