Mobile Point-of-Sale (mPOS) devices represent the next step in bringing the processing of card payments to individuals and small businesses. Typically, these devices are used alongside tablets and smart phones to process card transactions. However, with the questionable state of mobile device security, how do mPOS devices fare in keeping sensitive customer data safe?
Nils and Jon will be sharing their research into the security of the leading solutions for mobile Chip & Pin payments, looking at the weaknesses in the current solutions. Live demos will see them drop root shells and gain code execution through each input vector. This is one not to be missed!
Windows Phone 8 is slowly increasing its market share, more applications are being developed for the platform, often without any real security guidance on how to develop secure applications and what to watch out for.
Alex Plaskett and Nick Walker will be highlighting the common mistakes made by developers which can introduce security weaknesses into Windows Phone 8 applications. They will demonstrate a novel class of vulnerabilities specific to Windows Phone 8 applications, provide guidance on how to determine if your application is vulnerable, and provide recommendations on how to resolve these issues.
