Dr. Wenliang Du
“Android Security: Attacks, Defenses, and Education”
This talk consists of three parts: attack, defenses, and education. For the attack part, I will present some of the recent attacks/vulnerabilities that we have identified, including the code injection attacks on the HTML5-based apps and our investigation work on understanding how vendor customization can lead to security problems in Android. For the defense side, we focus on improving the security of the Android operating system using ARM’s TrustZone technology. With this technology, even if the operating system on the phone is compromised, user’s data and actions can still be protected.
The Distinguished Speakers Series is FREE and open to the public and all PNW students, faculty, and staff. We hope you will join us!
