heise offer: Workshop: Understand and defend against reverse engineering of iOS apps

In order to protect customer data and app code, anti-reverse engineering measures already play a central role in apps with high protection requirements – for example in the financial sector or healthcare. If a penetration test reveals that such measures are missing or incorrectly implemented, this jeopardizes the publication of the app. Countermeasures can make reverse engineering more difficult by tying up more of the attacker’s resources and increasing their costs.

The new online workshop Understand and defend against reverse engineering of iOS apps is intended for iOS developers who develop software with Xcode. Over two days, the event provides the basic knowledge required to understand what reverse engineering is all about and how such attacks can be defended against.

The security specialist Sven Fa├čbender also explains the basics of the ARM processor architecture and the associated assembly code. In the workshop you will learn the basics of reverse engineering in a practical way and in this context you will learn the differences as well as advantages and disadvantages between native programming with Swift or Objective-C and cross-platform development, for example with Cordova or Flutter. You will learn how to achieve your goals with professional (free) software and, based on code examples, see how to improve and defend your source code.

Specific prior knowledge of reverse engineering is not required. You should be familiar with the macOS command line and Xcode as well as the basics of app development. Before the workshop, participants will receive a virtual Linux distribution for VMware with the necessary tools. If desired, a free preparation session will help set up the tools in the run-up to the event.

The workshop will take place via zoom on June 23 and 24, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The price is 990 euros, with the early bird discount the ticket initially costs 890 euros.
