Introduction to Mobile Security Training
Mobile Security training is much needed in today’s world. Mobile technology is everywhere. Examples are mobile phones and tablets. Like PCs, they have the potential to be a victim to an attack. Downloading third-party apps is a way to infect the device with malware. Malware can break out of the sandbox, which is restrictions placed on the app so that if malware were to infect the app, it would not extend to other apps. Ides Trainings offers you the structured design of the mobile security course. We provide you with the Live Interactive Online session with your instructor, recorded sessions, customized and integrated trainings. We provide Online, Corporate and Classroom trainings. We provide Classroom for different locations in India like Hyderabad, Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, etc.

Mobile Security Training Course Content
Overview of Mobile Security Training
This course will cover simple steps that you can take today to ensure that your mobile devices do not remain easy targets for hackers and their cyberattacks. It is a casual attitude towards mobile security that can lead to breaches into personal and work data by hackers looking to sell the information of staff and students. Understanding the risks and warning signs of mobile cyberattacks can help you become the first line of defense against security breaches.
Off-Path TCP Sequence Number Inference Attack
Off-Path TCP sequence number inference attack is just like a man in the middle as the attacker poses to be legitimate server and communicates through 3-way handshake. The attacker does not have to place himself directly in between the victim and the legitimate server. He focuses on the mobile device firewall middleboxes. The attacker attempts to guess the correct ACK sequence number in order to complete the TCP connection with the victim. Attacker needs the Source, Destination IP and Port. They will use the spoofed IP. They send packets injected with malware and see which packets are being dropped and which are going through. They will be looking for IPID values. By this they will be knowing which packets are being dropped and accepted. Then they will infer the sequence number.
Android malware originates from the platforms used to download apps, third party market place which do not verify the safety of the software available. Another reason would be the differences that each marketplace, when it pertains to the defenses and the actual safety that they provide. Some marketplaces provide pretty good safety while others lack in that field giving or making the user very vulnerable. Apps can be uploaded without verification of trustworthiness which is a key issue because you could just upload any app with a virus with malware in it and it’d be widely available to people. Other reason is that malwares can be packed into apps and spread through unofficial repositories and finally malware can adapt to emulated environments meaning marketplace that it is placed in suddenly changes the rules, changes the way it views apps or the way it scans apps to see if they have viruses and things like that the actual malware can adapt to it in order for it not to be discovered and for it to stay in that marketplace. Another key point to android malware is the diversity of it. There are different types of malwares out there and each different type of malware constantly changes basically on a monthly basis and there are different types of variants. With each variant there’s certain things that change. Some known malwares are Geinimi, PJApps, Droid Dream trojan, Droid Kungfu, Fake Player, Anserver.
Droid Kungfu Malware
This is sophisticated malware. This contains root exploits which means once the malware is introduced into the system it is encrypted in a file and placed in your system. It uses encryption keys in order to make the malware and the files undetected. The folders in which the malware is placed in are actually given a name so that it seems like the legitimate information is stored within that folder making it again hard to detect. CNC servers hold the commands for the malware and they can be stored either as a java file, a java class file or in the native program of the actual mobile device as a cyber text. Shadow payloads are embedded within the app and once the app is downloaded into the phone, once Droid Kungfu is installed into the phone then the payload will also be installed into the phone. Payload actually downloads malicious code into the phone similar to the payload of Droid Kungfu. The difference is that even when Droid Kungfu is deleted from the mobile device the shadow payload remains. So, this malicious code is still on your phone even after you eradicate Droid Kungfu. It will put itself on your mobile device in two ways as an icon or no icon. If it doesn’t have an icon then it’s going to be very hard to detect because it’s probably going to be in group files. If it does have an icon, then it has a fake icon, for example a fake google search icon.
Tests have been done and shown that no anti-virus can fully protect a device from an attack. Different strands need to be taken. Malwares are constantly adapting and changing to the new security plans and patches. There are ant-viruses available to help protect, but ultimately it is up to the user to be cautious when using his or her device.
iOS Security Architecture
In 2014, apple released the iOS security guide which basically explained the architecture of the iPhone operating system and attempted to describe all the features that went towards the security. They had a sample in order to have application functionality within the sandbox engine. It limits or it constrains possible malware within an app. They also have user partitions separated from the operating system of the phone. They have an encrypted file system.
Why Mobile Security is important?
In today’s digitally connected world the secure use of smartphones and mobile devices for both personal and professional use is quickly becoming a serious concern. For schools and their valuable data just as dependency on these devices has grown in our daily lives so too has the number of cyber hacks on them. In addition, the amount of data stored in mobile devices from credit card and banking information to personal and work contacts makes them a highly valuable target for cyber thieves. Something as simple as using social media and applications could expose friends, family and other educators to cyber-attacks as well.
It is important to make sure that you update phones so that patches can be fixed and vulnerabilities can be addressed. This applies to any mobile device or even your computers, how you keep your definitions up to date. It is also important to make sure you read the conditions when downloading an app. Third-party apps are especially something to be aware of as you don’t know where the source is coming from. If you download an app that’s not trustworthy it can break out of the sandbox. One of the ways you can get access to the device is through the off-path TCP sequence number. It allows the attacker to act as a legitimate server and communicate with the victim through the three-way handshake. One of the big malwares that has been out there is the Droid Kungfu. It is important to be aware of the security threats that can arise when using your mobile device. Like a PC a mobile device can be infected with malware.
For keeping the mobile secured it should be up to date and you should be aware of the threats created by the attackers. Malware can be installed easily in your mobile so it is better to download only trustworthy apps. Ides Trainings provides you with the best Mobile Security training.
