In this hands-on, lab driven course students will be taught a methodology and series of techniques used to perform penetration testing of mobile devices and applications. This course, created by the project leads for the OWASP MobiSec project, uses intense lab driven learning that allows the student to learn techniques, tools and a methodology for testing mobile applications.
Kevin Johnson and James Jardine will work with the students to perform testing of iOS and Android as well as the web application and web services that make up the back end of these systems. They will work through various lab exercises as well as a complete capture the flag event on the second day of class.
