What is effective encryption? How effective is it, really? These are two questions that were the focus of viaForensics CEO Andrew Hoog’s presentation “Mobile Encryption: The Good, the Bad and the Broken” at RSA 2013 in San Francisco.
From the official RSA abstract:
Effective encryption is paramount to securing sensitive data on mobile devices given their large attack surface. But how effective is mobile encryption? This session will review five different types of mobile encryption (SSL, disk, keystores, app and containers), demonstrate strengths and weakness in each and provide steps that can be taken to improve mobile encryption.
