Course Description In this hands-on, lab driven course students will be taught a methodology and series of techniques used to perform penetration testing of mobile devices and applications. This course, created by the project leads for the OWASP MobiSec project, uses intense lab driven learning that allows the student to understand techniques, tools and a methodology for testing mobile applications. Note that the practical exercises for this course are focussed on the Android environment but the process and course documentation apply equally to testing of iOS applications.
