Identifying & Avoiding Android App Protections
By : Tim Strazzere
Bug bounties to me are always a race against time. Can we find a payable bug before we waste too much time? There are often specific things developers do to make reversing the applications more painful and take more time. In this presentation we will go over how to quickly identify many different protection schemes (Packers, Obfuscators, anti-techniques) and how to subvert them. Walking away from this presentation you should be armed with a treasure chest of techniques and tools to get to the gooey center of an Android application in no time. Hopefully this translates immediately to a higher ROI of your bug bounty hunting efforts.
