*Securing The Android Apps On Your Wrist and Face*Presenter: Jack Mannino

*Abstract:*Android Wear introduces new ways of interacting with our apps
and receiving timely, contextual information from the world around us.
Smartphones and tablets are becoming the central point for sending and
receiving data from wearables and sensors. Building apps for a wearable
world introduces new risks as well as shifts the responsibilities for
implementing security controls to other layers.

Many of the same issues we’re familiar with from past Android experiences
are still relevant, while some issues are less impactful or not (currently)
possible within existing wearables. At the same time, extending the app’s
trust boundaries introduces new points of exposure for developers to be
aware of in order to proactively defend against attacks. We want to
highlight these areas, which developers may not be aware of when adding a
wearable component to an existing app.

In this presentation, we will explore how Android Wear works underneath the
hood. We will examine its methods of communication, data replication, and
persistence options. We will examine how these applications into the
Android development ecosystem and the new risks to privacy and security
that need to be considered. Our goal isn’t to deter developers from
building wearable apps, but to enable them to make strong security
decisions throughout development.

*Bio:*Jack Mannino is the CEO at nVisium and loves solving problems in the
field of application security. With experience building, breaking, and
securing software, he founded nVisium to invent new and more efficient ways
of protecting software. Jack is a huge fan of contributing to open source
projects, and leads the OWASP Northern Virginia chapter. In his spare time,
he loves to kick around new frameworks and technologies, especially things
that run Android and code written in Scala. He’s also an optimistic New
York Mets fan, although that optimism slowly fades away every summer.
