ideas for mobile application security?

Posted 13 March 2013 - 10:18 AM

I was just wondering if anyone had some thoughts/ideas about mobile app security. Specifically things to do with preventing the theft of user credentials and also preventing the reverse engineering of applications. Are there tools or services our there that deal with this kind of thing that might use things like PKI or checksums to make sure that the application has the best chance possible of not being stolen or user credentials not being harvested?

I'm not sure on the theft of user credentials so I'll let someone else take care of that.

For the Android side (I'm sure other operating systems have something similar) Google has it's licensing program. You can read about it here. http://developer.and...sing/index.html

There are tools called obfuscators that help others from stealing your code. You didn't specify a language so you can just search and find out which ones might work better than others. This doesn't make it 100% safe but it will require more effort on the user to make sense of your code.

Hm, haven't heard about that. Though, frankly speaking, haven't had to deal with code stealing yet.
