The Android Hacker’s Handbook provides network security professionals and mobile device administrators with the specifics of the Android operating system from a security standpoint. This book explains how the operating system works, security risks associated with it, and the overall security architecture of the operating system. It also explains how vulnerabilities can be found in, and exploits developed for, various components of the system.

Written by some of the world’s foremost Android security researchers, the Android Hacker’s Handbook is the only resource of its kind to explore Android security on this level. This essential guide includes both implementation details as well as complexities introduced by the open nature of the OS.
