Opening the Kimono: Automating Behavioural Analysis for Mobile Apps - MBS-108

Michael Sutton, VP, Security Research, Zscaler, Inc.

Millions are installing mobile apps every day that abuse privacy, are vulnerable or even outright malicious, yet limited tools are available to assess application risk. In this talk we’ll discuss behavioural analysis techniques that we’ve developed, call out apps with poor security and unveil a free web application that will allow anyone to conduct behavioural analysis on mobile apps.

Michael Sutton has spent more than a decade in the security industry conducting leading-edge research, building teams of world-class researchers, and educating others on a variety of security topics. As Vice President of Security Research, Michael heads Zscaler ThreatLabZ, the research and development arm of the company. Zscaler ThreatLabZ is responsible for researching emerging topics in web security and developing innovative security controls, which leverage the Zscaler in-the-cloud model. He previously worked for SPI Dynamics (acquired by HP) and iDefense (acquired by VeriSign). Michael is a frequent speaker at major information security conferences; regularly quoted by the media and is the co-author of Fuzzing: Brute Force Vulnerability Discovery.
