Discover all the security risks and exploits that can threaten iOS-based mobile devices iOS is Apple's mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPad. With the introduction of iOS5, many security issues have come to light. This book explains and discusses them all. The award-winning author team, experts in Mac and iOS security, examines the vulnerabilities and the internals of iOS to show how attacks can be mitigated. The book explains how the operating system works, its overall security architecture, and the security risks associated with it, as well as exploits, rootkits, and other payloads developed for it. Covers iOS security architecture, vulnerability hunting, exploit writing, and how iOS jailbreaks work Explores iOS enterprise and encryption, code signing and memory protection, sandboxing, iPhone fuzzing, exploitation, ROP payloads, and baseband attacks Also examines kernel debugging and exploitation Companion website includes source code and tools to facilitate your efforts iOS Hacker's Handbook arms you with the tools needed to identify, understand, and foil iOS attacks.
A book that covers 2g and 3g iPhones and a future version of the iPhone hardware shows how to write secure iPhone applications, outlines the techniques hackers use to attack the device, examines vulnerabilities and provides in-depth analysis of the iPhone's built-in security and security testing.
Communications and Multimedia Security is an essential reference for both academic and professional researchers in the fields of Communications and Multimedia Security. This state-of-the-art volume presents the proceedings of the Eighth Annual IFIP TC-6 TC-11 Conference on Communications and Multimedia Security, September 2004, in Windermere, UK. The papers presented here represent the very latest developments in security research from leading people in the field. The papers explore a wide variety of subjects including privacy protection and trust negotiation, mobile security, applied cryptography, and security of communication protocols. Of special interest are several papers which addressed security in the Microsoft .Net architecture, and the threats that builders of web service applications need to be aware of. The papers were a result of research sponsored by Microsoft at five European University research centers. This collection will be important not only for multimedia security experts and researchers, but also for all teachers and administrators interested in communications security.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the 13th International Workshop on Fast Software Encryption, FSE 2006, held in Graz, Austria in March 2006. Presents 27 revised full papers addressing all current aspects of fast and secure primitives for symmetric cryptology, and organized in topical sections on stream ciphers, block ciphers, hash functions, analysis, proposals, modes and models, as well as implementation and bounds.
The RSA R Conference, with over 15,000attendees, as well as over 225 sponsors and exhibitors, is the largest computer security event of the year. The Cr- tographers’ Track is one of the many parallel tracks. These proceedings contain the papers presented during the sixth edition. The tradition indeed started in 2001, and is by now well established: the Cryptographers’ Track at the RSA Conference is among the major events in cryptography. There were 72 submitted contributions, of which 22 were selected for p- sentation. They cover all aspects of cryptography (symmetric and asymmetric cryptography, constructions and attacks, new trends). In addition, the program includes two invited talks, by Xiaoyun Wang on “Cryptanalysis of Hash fu- tions and Potential Dangers,” and Philip MacKenzie on “Passwords Will Not Die: How Cryptography Can Help Deal with Them. ” All the submissions were reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 18th International Workshop on Fast Software Encryption, held in Lyngby, Denmark, in February 2011. The 22 revised full papers presented together with 1 invited lecture were carefully reviewed and selected from 106 initial submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on differential cryptanalysis, hash functions, security and models, stream ciphers, block ciphers and modes, as well as linear and differential cryptanalysis.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 19th International Workshop on Fast Software Encryption, held in Washington, DC, USA, in March 2012. The 24 revised full papers presented together with 1 invited talk were carefully reviewed and selected from 89 initial submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on block ciphers, differential cryptanalysis, hash functions, modes of operation, new tools for cryptanalysis, new designs and Keccak.
The recent development of quantum computing and quantum algorithmics has raised important questions in cryptography. With Shor s algorithm (Peter W. Shor, Polynomial-TimeAlgorithms for Prime Factorization and Discrete Lo- rithmsonaQuantumComputer, SIAMJ.Sci.Statist.Comput.41(2):303-332, 1999)thecollapseofsomeofthemostwidelyusedtechniquesfor securingdigital communications has become a possibility. In consequence, the everlasting duty of the cryptographic research community to keep an eye on alternative te- niques has become an urgent necessity. Post-quantum cryptography was born. Its primary concern is the study of public-key cryptosystems that remain - cure in a world with quantum computers....
