    I still feel that lot of security threats related to mobile devices are still unexplored. We don’t have a strict process or skill set unlike a web application to analyse a mobile app or your mobile device.

    I hope the book will cover the techniques to analyse dynamic file systems/temp files/registry content/memory of a mobile device to find out the issues in my device or my mobile apps way before an attacker do and exploit me.

    Best of luck 🙂

    As an avid Mobile Phone Examiner, it is great to see an up to date book being released.

    I am keen to see the advice given by a second pair of eyes in these matters.

    Hope the practices are targeting to new devices, since I’ve already seen that some examples in other books are kind of old. Even though the theory is explained quite clear, lacking of real “battle” seems miss something.

    As we all know about and it’s blogposts this book will be nothing short of all the other books published in mobile security like iOS hackers handbook and so on. Also it will give a deep insight into all the four mobile platforms and it’s inner working to perform successful mobile forensic.

    Looking to get some in depth information on the blackberry side. There are a good number of resources for ios, android and windows phone but bb10 remains also hoping for a good number of exercises to work upon and get comfortable with tools and approaches.

    First of all, Congrats Satish! Very happy to see your progress, wishing all the very best for your future endeavors.

    For IT Security practitioners out there: This book is prepared by a person whom we seen in action breaking most of the secure code practices and who’s been a trainer since long. I am expecting the same kind of code breaking techniques were filled in the current book to share his knowledge and experience which can help others to learn without much hustle.
    Go for it guys!!

    Being a computer forensic expert, lately I have been getting my hands dirty on some mobile evidence. There is no standard approach of how to perform forensic analysis on a mobile / smartphone evidence. I would expect this book to walk us through some standard techniques that we can follow or some scenario based techniques and what tools to use when kind of explanations are expected. Really looking forward for this book.

    I expect that the author dives deep into the potential threats and vulnerabilities around various mobile platforms. Given that mobiles and tablets (both predominantly running on similar operating systems) have taken over desktops and laptops, a focused approach towards security of these devices is a must have. This book, I hope, would cover areas that touch base with breaking-in, exploits, security around the device, the platform and applications built on top. I also expect that it gives a possible lead on protecting and securing, which is a much of a need now.
