Battle-Tested Best Practices for Securing Android Apps throughout the Development Lifecycle

Bulletproof Android: Practical Advice for Building Secure Apps

Bulletproof Android: Practical Advice for Building Secure Apps
By Godfrey Nolan
Pub Date: December 7, 2014

Android's immense popularity has made it today's #1 target for attack: high-profile victims include eHarmony, Facebook, and Delta Airlines, just to name a few. Today, every Android app needs to resist aggressive attacks and protect data, and in Bulletproof Android™, Godfrey Nolan shows you how. Unlike "black hat/gray hat" books, which focus on breaking code, this guide brings together complete best practices for hardening code throughout the entire development lifecycle. Using detailed examples from hundreds of apps he has personally audited, Nolan identifies common "anti-patterns" that expose apps to attack, and then demonstrates more secure solutions.
