Description

Are you looking to learn how to hack and pentest Android applications? If so, you have come to the right place! This set of videos outlines the basic foundations of Android hacking and pentesting. By the end of this course, you will have an understanding of how to setup a test environment, how to decompile apks, how to detect common types of vulnerabilities, and how to use Drozer. This course is great for anyone looking to learn more about Computer Security, and Android application hacking.

I am an experienced security researcher who specializes in Android-based security. My goal in this course is to demonstrate some of the well known Android security flaws, to allow you to detect and patch them in your own applications, and any others you may be testing.

Hi, my name is Scott, and I am a developer and teacher who is passionate about learning. I work primarily in software development and computer security. Aside from this, I've taught students a variety of programming-related topics, and I love to inspire students to be passionate about the topics I teach. I have experience in both large class and one on one teaching, so I have the skills and experience to help you understand and succeed in the topics I teach!

I believe that mathematics and computer science can be approachable and fun topics. I tailor my courses so that they are easy to comprehend, with exploration of the what, why, and how of every topic. I understand that these topics are not a spectator sport, so I provide as many examples and practice problems as possible so that you can follow along and learn!

I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you, and I hope that you enjoy my classes.
