Abstract: Over the last 7 years, Android has become the world’s most popular operating system. For over a billion people, Android is the primary (or only) way to connect to the internet and the rest of the world. People trust Android with their most sensitive and personal information and communications. Building and maintaining that trust requires a wide range of security technologies, as well as a team of people who are flexible and creative.

Adrian will provide a brief overview of these technologies and the Android security team before opening a discussion into ongoing research projects and development efforts on Android security. He’s also promised to talk a bit about what it’s like to work at Google on the Android team. This security seminar will revolve around a discussion so will be more akin to a Friday meeting.
