iOS VPN Security (Jack Wilson)

| February 20th, 2018

Level: Technical

Due to the increasing number of recommendations for people to use VPN’s for privacy reasons, more app developers are creating VPN apps and publishing them on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. In this ’gold rush’, apps are being developed quickly and, in turn, not being developed with security fully in mind. The talk will cover the research (so far) for my final year dissertation/thesis around iOS VPN security analysing common traits and some of the weird findings.

The full proposal for my project an be found at

Jack Wilson is a final-year student at Abertay University in Scotland, studying BSc (Hons) Ethical Hacking. He works part-time as a security consultant and his interests include offensive and defensive security and privacy.
