Session II - Reverse Engineering

I work in the financial industry and have seen my fair share of insecure application security. For research purposes (and fun) I've performed various reverse-engineering projects which I will be sharing with the audience.  We'll discuss how I reverse-engineered a proprietary crypto algorithm, database password security, and mobile apps. In my presentation I'll discuss how to use decompiler software to view application code (and how to use that code for cracking), basic password storage [in]security, and traffic analysis for web services.
