Modern iOS Application Security



Dan Guido talks about the current state of iOS attacks, reviews available security APIs, and reveals why they are not enough to defend against known threats. He talks about the design of the Mobile Application Security Toolkit (MAST) which ties together jailbreak detection, anti-debugging, and anti-reversing in LLVM to address these risks.


Dan Guido is the CEO and co-founder of Trail of Bits, a cybersecurity research and development firm. He has led the R&D team to make novel advances in automated vulnerability finding and exploitation, and helps firms apply these techniques in practice on their products. He runs the Empire Hacking meetup group and moderates Reddit Netsec, the largest security forum on the internet.
