  • Wouter Veugelen
  • Wednesday, March 20th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm

Microsoft released its latest operating system for mobile devices, Windows Phone 8, late 2012 and organisations start deploying more mobile apps for the latest Microsoft platform. Consequently, security professionals need to understand how this platform and its applications are secured and how they can be assessed for security vulnerabilities.

In this presentation an overview will be provided of the security features of the operating system as well as instructions on how to configure a test environment to assess applications for security vulnerabilities and an initial analysis of potential future jailbreaking methods.
