November 14th Meeting 6pm @ Elsies

Karl Fosaaen will be presenting on Attacking iOS Apps with Proxies at the November 14th DC612. This presentation will cover the basics of attacking iOS applications (and their back ends) using a web proxy to intercept, modify, and repeat HTTP/HTTPS requests. From setting up the proxy to pulling data from the backend systems, this talk will be a great primer for anyone interested in testing iOS applications at the HTTP protocol level. There will be a short primer on setting up the intercepting proxy, followed by three practical examples; showing how to intercept data headed to the phone, how to modify data heading to the application server, and how to pull extra data from application servers to further an attack. All of these examples will focus on native iOS apps (Game Center and Passbook) and/or functionality (Passbook Passes).
