Has Android achieved the impossible? Do intents enable interprocess communications and inter-process collaboration that is actually securable? The answer, as in many platforms, is a definite ‘maybe’. Firstly, intents invite "new" attacks - attacks more traditionally associated with distributed systems - such as spoofing, hijacking, out of order execution and theft of data. Secondly, all is not always as it seems. Like so many things in in life, it is possible to do things right and still get it wrong. Securing intents properly requires a defensive approach of some old techniques plus an added step of validating some assumptions. This talk is aimed mainly at app developers - learn how intents work under the hood, how to secure your intents and how to secure your assumptions to achieve your goal of secure apps.
