Bulletproof Android: Practical Advice for Building Secure Apps (Developer's Library)


Bulletproof Android: Practical Advice for Building Secure Apps (Developer's Library) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Bulletproof Android, Godfrey Nolan brings together comprehensive, up-to-date best practices for writing apps that resist attack and won't leak information: yours, or your users. Unlike other Android security books focused on "breaking" code, Bulletproof Android focuses on strengthening code security throughout your entire development lifecycle. Nolan thoroughly addresses crucial issues including:

  • Protecting code that communicates with back-end web servers
  • Safeguarding Android databases, including SQLite and SQLcipher
  • Resisting web service attacks via XSS, SQL injection, and other means
  • Using webviews securely
  • Enabling secure user login and information transmission
  • Protecting code and business rules from reverse engineering
  • Safely integrating third-party libraries
  • Taking advantage of encryption, SELinux, Knox, and Mobile Device Management
  • Futureproofing code: DVM, ART, and beyond
  • And much more

Each tactic and technique is presented with working code examples and practical advice — including expert insights into pros, cons, and tradeoffs. All source code is available for download, and each subsection is supported with a complete sample app that demonstrates security problems and how to solve them.
