Common Application Security Mistakes: The Seven Deadly Sins

After spending the past year hacking mobile applications, Dan Kuykendall, Co-CEO and CTO of NT OBJECTives, searched to uncover the most common application security mistakes made during mobile app development.

The findings of Dan’s research center on session management, the process of authenticating the user and ensuring an attacker isn’t impersonating a user or “eavesdropping” on the service. In most cases, a vulnerability in any single area isn’t a significant liability; however, the more mistakes that are made, the easier it is to attack the app.

In this free presentation, Dan Kuykendall will discuss the topic of “The Seven Deadly Sins of Mobile Application Development,” which are imperative when:

  • Trusting the client
  • Not requiring encryption
  • Allowing lifetime sessions
  • Not keeping secrets
  • Allowing repeat requests
  • Not having a curfew for requests
  • Failing to prevent altered requests
