Companies that are looking to be fully adapted to the mobile world, develop their own applications on the Android platform.
These applications have seen massive growth in capability and complexity and became quite popular to malicious adversaries.
Android users and developers express a need to be constantly aware of their mobile security risks and, because of this need, mobile security and risk assessment specialists and security engineers are in high demand.
To address this problem efficiently, I recommend reading the book 'Android Security Cookbook' from 'Packt Publishing' (see[.......] )
'Android Security Cookbook' discusses many common vulnerabilities and security related shortcomings in Android applications and operating systems.
The book breaks down and enumerates the processes used to exploit and remediate these vulnerabilities in the form of detailed recipes and walkthroughs.
The book also teaches readers to use an Android Security Assessment Framework called Drozer and how to develop plugins to customize the framework.
Other topics covered include how to reverse-engineer Android applications to find common vulnerabilities, and how to find common memory corruption vulnerabilities on ARM devices.
In terms of application protection this book will show various hardening techniques to protect application components, the data stored, secure networking.
In summary, 'Android Security Cookbook' provides a practical analysis into many areas of Android application and operating system security and gives the reader the required skills to analyze the security of their Android devices.
'Android Security Cookbook' is aimed at anyone who is interested in Android app security and wants to be able to take the necessary practical measures to protect themselves; this means that Android application developers, security researchers and analysts, penetration testers, and generally any CIO, CTO, or IT managers facing the impeding onslaught of mobile devices in the business environment will benefit from reading this book.
I personally liked the Native Exploitation chapter the most, as it goes much beyond the normal application level, and gives you a clear picture of how exactly exploits work.
If you are planning to get into Android Application Auditing, this is one of the must have books for you. Nothing less than what I was expected. Surely deserves a 5/5 rating.
