iOS Secure Coding Course Overview

Infosec’s Secure Coding for iOS Platform 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 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.

Our classroom trainings come with a number of easy-to-understand exercises providing live hacking fun. By accomplishing these exercises with the lead of the trainer, participants can analyze vulnerable code snippets and commit attacks against them in order to fully understand the root causes of certain security problems. All exercises are prepared in a plug-and-play manner by using a pre-set desktop virtual machine, which provides a uniform development environment. Infosec’s Secure Coding for iOS Platform Course offers you two (2) days of training with a real iOS Security expert. Our experts have extensive iOS development experience as well as years of experience performing security code reviews.

    What Our Students Are Saying

    Without any question, InfoSec has the most gifted individual instructors. Our instructor for this class was both an excellent educator and a premier/world class security expert. He was able to clearly explain and impart to the students, the most complicated security techniques I have ever heard of or imagined. I simply can not find the words to recommend him and Infosec security training more highly.
