They can crack the code. Here's how to stop them.
The world loves iOS. Users love the convenience. Black hats love the vulnerability. This book arms you with the knowledge and tools to protect your organization's iOS devices. If you're a developer, it will also help you create hack-resistant applications.
These highly qualified iOS experts review iOS security architecture, examine the internals, and reveal the vulnerabilities. They show you how iOS jailbreaks work and explore encryption, code signing and memory protection, sandboxing, iPhone fuzzing, exploitation, ROP payloads, and baseband attacks. Here's a complete toolkit for defending your iOS devices.
Examine the internals and identify the vulnerabilities of iOS
Explore all the elements of encryption, vulnerability hunting, and exploit writing
Review some common payloads and see what can and can't be done on iOS with ROP
Learn more about kernel debugging and exploitation, with an overview of kernel structure and a look at auditing IOKit drivers
Look at techniques for fuzzing PDF and PowerPoint® documents in MobileSafari
Study different jailbreak types
