Secure Coding for iOS Platform Training Course Hands-on

Secure Coding for iOS Platform Training 2-day Intense Course provides in-depth coverage of iOS key security features as well as related vulnerabilities, attacks and mitigation techniques.

iOS is a mobile operating system distributed exclusively for Apple hardware and designed with security at its core; key security features including sandboxing, native language exploit mitigations or hardware supported encryption all offer a very effective environment for secure software development. The devil is however in the details – a programmer can still commit plenty of mistakes to make the resulting apps vulnerable. This Secure Coding for iOS Platform Training course introduces the iOS security model and the usage of various components, but also deals with the vulnerabilities and attacks, focusing on the mitigation techniques and the best practices to avoid them.
