Exploiting next gen apps
With the explosion in mobile device popularity and the applications that go along with these, testing mobile application security has become a key skill in every pentester’s arsenal. Last year we launched the Hacking by Numbers: Mobile, course at BlackHat Las Vegas and follow up training at BlackHat WestCoast Trainings. This year we are taking Mobile training to the next level with Hacking by Numbers reloaded, Mobile Bootcamp (https://www.blackhat.com/us-14/training/hacking-by-numbers-reloaded-mobile-bootcamp.html)
The course has undergone the full reloaded treatment, with our trainers pouring new tips, tricks and skills into the course, along with incorporating feedback from previous students.
You said mobile?
The mobile space has numerous platforms, each with their own nuances, that would leave any new pentester dizzy. Fortunately this is where the Mobile bootcamp course excels, offering the perfect blend of introductory and advanced techniques, the training is ideal for anyone looking to start testing mobile applications or the experienced tester who is looking to branch out to new platforms.
The training introduces all the core skills required to test applications across the major mobile platforms, particularly:
- Windows Phone 8
Training is built around around demonstration and hands-on practical exploitation, with custom practical exercises derived from real-world application security fails.

Who should attend?
The course is relevant for attackers, defenders and developers. Students should have some technical ability in Linux, and understand networking fundamentals, but this is a bootcamp level course. Basic programming knowledge is recommended but not essential.
