eXtend Security on Xcode
The mobile industry is now booming. According to Apple, the number of iOS apps in App Store reached 1,000,000 as of October 2013. In this highly competitive market, mobile app developers are required to develop a high-value, high-quality and high-performance app with a short time-to-market. Implementing security into earlier phases of such rapid pace agile development life cycle can be considered as one of the key success factors for organizations. 

We believe that adding an automated security measure into the Xcode IDE itself is essential and can help facilitate secure agile development cycles for iOS developers. Therefore, we are implementing our own security features on top of Xcode.

During the coding phase, developers will be able to automatically spot general security issues in iOS apps and thus prevent them from creating those issues. This can also help security testers to conduct white-box security testing in a shorter amount of time. We will also share the difficulties and problems we faced and how we overcame them during our research.
