What your apps say about you (and how to find out)
We will start by showing how to easily set up a home network to capture your phone's Internet traffic, which is often enough to reveal sensitive information an app sends about you. Then we will demonstrate how to decrypt https traffic, which is often used to encrypt sensitive information. Some apps encrypt their traffic by rolling their own "homebrew" encryption, which can often be easily decrypted. We will briefly demonstrate how to decrypt this traffic in typical cases. Anyone interested or concerned about what their app may say about them will find this session informative.
