> *OWASP Philly/ Lunch Meeting Thursday September 25th*
> *When*: Thursday, September 25th, 2014 from 11:30 - 1:30 PM
> *Where*: Protiviti - 50 S 16th St, Philadelphia, PA 19102
> *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.
