TPDP Episode #24: Mobile Application Security

TwitterFacebookRedditLinkedInHacker News

I’m pleased to announce that the latest episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast titled, Mobile Application Security, has been published to iTunes, Pocket Casts, and every other major podcasting network that consumes the feed!

In this episode, which is the 24th episode of the show, I’m joined by first time guest, Rob Lauer, and returning guest TJ VanToll. Both of these guests work for Progress, which is the company behind NativeScript, and you’ll remember that episode 5 was strictly around getting to know what NativeScript has to offer. The focus of this episode isn’t around NativeScript, but around the security of your mobile applications. Just like with web applications, security is important with mobile, even if it isn’t talked about as much.

In this episode you’ll learn about protecting your application source code from reverse engineering, protecting your users data at rest, and securely transferring your data between remote web services.

Like previously mentioned, this episode is available on Pocket Casts, iTunes, and pretty much every other podcast network that exists. However, if you’d prefer to listen to it here, it can be found below.

Rob, TJ, and myself have been building and publishing mobile applications for quite some time. If you have a question for any of us around security, shoot us a message on Twitter. You can find Rob on the handle @roblauer, TJ on the handle @tjvantoll, and myself at @nraboy.

If you feel like there was a security topic around mobile that we didn’t mention, feel free to talk about it in the comments of this particular article. We’re developers, not necessarily security experts, sharing our mobile development stories. We could have easily missed something.
