Galois Tech Talk: Android G1: Experiences with an open mobile platform
Galois, Inc

The next Galois Tech Talk, #2 for 2009, will be Isaac Potoczny-Jones (aka SyntaxNinja) on developing for the Android G1 phone.

The Android G1 is a TMobile phone whose operating system, Android is based on Linux and was developed by Google. It’s a very open smart-phone platform that rivals the iPhone.

While I’m no expert in Android or mobile platform development, I will discuss my experiences in Android development and demonstrate the toolchain used to develop software for the Android. I’ll outline the basic features of the platform, with a focus on the factors that make its openness so powerful:

* the inter-process communications mechanism whereby applications can advertise the services they offer and other applications can take advantage of those services,

* The open-source Java, Eclipse, and Linux-based toolchain,

* the OpenIntents project.

This will be an informal demonstration and discussion.

A group of us in collaboration between the Android Password Safe project and the Openintents project have implemented a cryptography service and a keystore service which other Android applications can use to keep data and passwords safe, in a way that’s convenient for the end user.

Our system allows a single password, and periodic single sign-on so that all applications can encrypt, decrypt, and store keys using the same master password that the user enters once. 

* Date: Tuesday, January 20, 2008
* Time: 10:30am - 11:30am
* Location: Galois, Inc.
  421 SW 6th Ave. Suite 300
  (3rd floor of the Commonwealth Building)
  Portland, OR 97204

Galois has been holding weekly technical seminars for several years on topics from functional programming, formal methods, compiler and language design, to cryptography, and operating system construction, with talks by many figures from the programming language and formal methods communities. The talks are open and free.

PDXScala Meeting
Jive Software

Come join us for another gathering of PDXScala, graciously hosted by Jive Software. We'll be meeting at 7PM, June 17th, and Steven Osborn will be talking about his experiences developing for Android using Scala.


Interested in Android Mobile OS development, but want to be able to program in Scala? Well you can have your cake and eat it too. Steven will give a high level overview of the Android development platform along with his experiences using SBT along the SBT Android plugin to rapidly develop Android applications. We'll cover everything from setting up your project, running your hello world application, and testing.

Steven is the CTO of Urban Airship, a local mobile messaging and content deliver company providing easy to use, cross-platform web services for iPhone, Blackberry and Android. With nearly a decade of experience in the industry he has participated in all stages of a software company from startup to acquisition. Steven enjoys participating in open source development and has contributed significant amounts of code to projects, including Android OpenIntents and IDiB (Identity In The Browser).

Mobile Portland: Ambient Location Apps and Geoloqi
Cloudability

Named by JWT Intelligence as one of the 100 things to watch in 2011, Portland's Geoloqi has garnered national attention for being at the forefront of location-based services. Forbes recently asked if Geoloqi was "Foursquare's Biggest Threat?"

Why is there so much buzz for this small project in Portland? Because Geoloqi is on the cutting edge of taking location information and making it truly useful.

As Aaron Parecki, one of the co-founders of Geoloqi, explained to Forbes, "I’d like to share my location with a client if I’m meeting them somewhere, so they can know when I’ll arrive."

We're honored to have Aaron Parecki and Amber Case as our first presenters of 2011. They'll be talking about the next generation of location apps and the importance of ambient location services.

Presentation Description

Wouldn't it be nice if your colleague's phone could SMS its location to you? If you know position and velocity, you know when they'll arrive. The result: the interface disappears. No redundant actions or queries. The same software could turn your lights on as you approach the house. Or automatically "check in" to certain locations for you. Or leave a note for yourself the next time you're at the store.

Augmented reality and location were hot topics last year, but there is often a confusion between aesthetics vs. practicality, and fantasy vs. reality. This presentation will highlight the advantages and disadvantages of visual and non-visual augmented reality.

In the presentation, they will highlight why developers of apps should look at what users want to do now, as well as what users want to do in the future, why social apps should try to mirror real-world relationships, why sharing should be about who you share with as well as how long you’re sharing, and why developers should think about how to make apps "ambient” and require less user interaction.

They will cover the current players in the geolocation market, the location market itself, and why location is such a big deal. They will discuss real-time location sharing, geolocation triggers such as geonotes, proximal notification and automatic checkins, and privacy and security.

What Will Be Covered

  • The location market. Where it is now and future projections.
  • Why the market is here (timing, hardware, affordability, etc.).
  • Some history (PARC research, etc.)
  • The current players: What they’re doing and where they fall short
  • What we’re passionate about and are trying to solve.
  • Philosophy of interface evaporation.
  • (Other cool things you can do with ambient location and sensors (fun home automation tricks and pranks).

Aaron Parecki

Aaron Parecki is a Portland-based iPhone and PHP developer interested in solving practical problems with technology. In his free time, he enjoys geolocation, linguistics, and building home automation systems and IRC bots with a sense of humor.

For the past 2.5 years, he has been tracking and visualizing his location every 6 seconds, making him a frequent presenter at the Portland data visualization group. His fascination with location sharing and GPS began at the age of 6, when he traced the routes of family road trips on a map with a highlighter. He combined these interests and created Geoloqi.com with Amber Case in an effort to help people connect in the real world.

Aaron has 11 years experience in web app development, database design, graphic design and printing, and server administration. You can learn more about Aaron at aaronparecki.com, and you can follow him on twitter at @aaronpk.

Amber Case

Amber Case is a cyborg anthropologist and user experience designer from Portland, Oregon. Her main focus is mobile software, augmented reality and data visualization, as these reduce the amount of time and space it takes for people to connect with information. Case founded Geoloqi.com, a private location sharing application, out of a frustration with existing social protocols around text messaging and wayfinding.

Last year, Case was featured in Fast Company as one of their Most Influential Women in Technology and spoke at TED on technology and humans. She worked with Fortune 500 companies at Wieden+Kennedy and now works as a user experience designer at Vertigo Software in Portland, Oregon.

You can learn more about Case at caseorganic.com, cyborganthropology.com and on Twitter at @caseorganic.

Janrain Engage for Android 1.0 workshop
Janrain Headquarters

Hello Portland Android Developers!

Janrain is getting ready to release version 1.0 of the brand new Engage for Android library which includes an abstract and easy to implement user authentication component, as well as an extremely simple to use social sharing UI. In anticipation of our upcoming release, we’re hosting a fast track introduction workshop for interested Android application developers.

Who might be interested: Are you an Android app developer? Are you interested in authenticating your users via Google, Facebook and other identity providers? Perhaps you are interested in enabling social sharing - including tweets and wall posts - directly from your app? Save time and effort, and leverage the benefits of our abstract implementation - the Engage for Android library.

What our product does: The Janrain Engage for Android library provides a system to authenticate Android application users with their existing identity accounts - e.g. Google, Facebook, and Twitter. The library also provides a system to enable your users to share information from your application via their social networking accounts (LinkedIn, Yahoo, Twitter, MySpace and Facebook.)

What our event is: Janrain is hosting a coding workshop at our downtown office. If you are interested in adding our library to your Android application, we invite you to come! (Please bring your laptop.)

At this workshop we’ll walk through everything an Android application developer needs to implement authentication and social sharing with the Engage for Android library, including: IDE integration, Android project configuration, build system troubleshooting, Engage application creation and configuration, authentication system design (including Engage token URLs!), and social sharing invocation.

When our event is: Thursday, June 9 2011, starting 5pm.

Where our event is: The Janrain Office @ 519 SW 3rd Ave, Suite 600, Portland, OR 97204.

Please click RSVP to [email protected], so we can save you a spot and make sure there is enough food and beer. We are looking forward to a fun filled evening with the Android developer community.

So, please join us for an evening of coding, beer and pizza!

TL;DR: Do you want to authenticate your users or do social sharing ezmode? -> Come to our workshop.

Galois Tech Talk: Comprehensive Analysis of the Android Ecosystem
Galois, Inc

Presented by Iulian Neamtiu.

The relative novelty and rapid evolution pace of the Android ecosystem (platform, vendor-installed apps and third-party apps) means both the platform and apps receive little scrutiny. Hence there is a need for tools that assess, monitor and verify all components of the Android ecosystem. This lack of tools and scrutiny is particularly problematic when combined with the open nature of Google Play, the main app distribution channel.

In the first part of this talk we will focus on multi-layer profiling of Android apps using ProfileDroid, a tool and framework we developed at UC Riverside. ProfileDroid is useful for a variety of Android app analyses, from performance to usability to security. ProfileDroid monitors and correlates the behavior of an app at four layers: (a) static, or app specification (b) user interaction, (c) operating system, and (d) network layer. Using ProfileDroid on 27 free and paid Android apps, we have revealed: (a) discrepancies between the app specification and app execution, (b) free versions of apps could end up costing more than their paid counterparts, due to an order of magnitude increase in traffic, (c) most network traffic is not encrypted, (d) apps communicate with many more sources than users might expect.

In the second part of the talk we will present results from our long-term permission evolution study of the Android ecosystem---platform and 237 apps---over three years. We found that the platform has increased the number of dangerous permissions and does not move towards finer-grained permissions, and that app developers do not follow the principle of least privilege. We will also briefly discuss our efforts with static information flow tracking for Android apps, as well as building a log-and-replay system for Android.

PLUG Advanced Topics: Recoupling Computer Science and Computing
Free Geek

The Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics meeting

Recoupling Computer Science and Computing

A talk and roundtable discussion

There is no question that hybrid telecommunication/computing appliances like those running iOS and Android have put more open source software into the hands of users than any other effort to date but vendors and carriers consistently choose user control over user freedom. While many users and vendors will argue that "people want their systems to 'just work'", intentional and unintentional decoupling of the user computing experiences from the underlying computer science is the norm, despite the fact that developers and systems administrators are equally lazy and "want their systems to 'just work'".

Because no technical barrier exists between these two experiences of a given system, this talk will explore the historic and modern systems that provide the best balance of user and developer experience and open up to a roundtable discussion of other such systems and how to bridge these two experiences and foster computer science in society.

Please be prepared to talk about your experiences, particularly on platforms like Android and web frameworks which can offer full-stack access to sources yet deliver a competitive user experience.

See you there!

Many will break for the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne afterwards.

Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics: Android App Collusion
Free Geek

Who: Rogan Creswick
What: Multi-App Security Analysis: Looking for Android App Collusion
Where: Free Geek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue, Portland
When: Tuesday, November 19th, 2013 at 7pm
Why: The pursuit of technology freedom

The Android permission model opens up a number of opportunities for apps to bypass the established single-app permission checks that Android users rely on to control data flow and application behavior on their devices. I'll do my best to terrify the Android-using audience by describing the attack surface for colluding applications and showing interactive visualizations of multi-app data flow. We'll look at the Android permission model, the user-interface it results in, and I'll show just how easy it is to make apps that look innocuous.

Bio:

Rogan Creswick develops unique tools and techniques for software development and security analysis at Galois, Inc. His research interests focus on improving the state of the art in software engineering tools and user interfaces. His experience also reaches into the areas of user interface automation and customization via integrated assistants and automated documentation aides at IBM Research. He has striven to provide natural interfaces to ease communication with complex and semi-sentient agents through existing tools that have already become trustworthy and familiar to their users.

Many attendees will break for a social hour at the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne after the meeting

Mobile Portland — Choosing The Right Stack for Mobile
Urban Airship Inc

The problem: You are an enterprise or startup with some desktop offerings, and the writing on the wall has turned into the tattoo on your forehead. The time has come to turn some or all of your money printing machine into something that can be easily accessed and used on smartphones and tablets.

The solution: It depends.

It is also the topic of Dee Madden’s presentation at Mobile Portland this month: “Choosing The Right Stack for Mobile: The Pros And Cons of Each”

The topic of Native vs Hybrid vs Pure Web vs Shared Codebase vs Whatever is a well worn one, but dynamic and ever-changing, nonetheless. In this presentation, Dee will examine the current landscape, with a pragmatic approach that holds all solutions equal. He will cover the pluses and minuses of each, and how to leverage the more endearing traits of one over the other as the best solution for the problem at hand.

Among the stacks covered are:

  • Native
  • Hybrid “Shrinkwrap” solutions – a focus on PhoneGap, with some discussion of the others, such as Appcelerator and Sencha
  • Roll-your-own Hybrid – hybrid built with a custom native container
  • Drive-Through Hybrid – Codiqa
  • Shared Codebase – Xamarin, with a dusting of the Ruby-based Rhodes framework

Throughout, Dee will show some working examples of some of these, providing some concrete examples of the advantages of each, and some of the pitfalls that can come with them as applications evolve, with an anecdote or two for good measure.

Come on out and kick the shindig in the shins! Dee will have his shinguards on!

Mobile Portland — Critical Path to eBay Mobile Success
Urban Airship Inc

Early in 2008, Critical Path Software was introduced to eBay by its Apple friends. Critical Path was a premier developer with the skills and experience to launch eBay into the initial iTunes AppStore on July 10, 2008.

It was a heady time. The deadline was tight. The team had to fight through issues with the iPhone SDK and integration with eBay servers. It was a grand success. The eBay app went on to be number 3 of all free apps in the first year of the App Store. Contemporary industry-wide mobile ecommerce revenue estimates were vastly exceeded by the eBay app alone. The mobile ecommerce revolution was born.

Fast forward to today. The eBay Mobile products produced here in Portland are responsible for over 30 percent of eBay revenue. Ladd Van Tol and Dan Weston have graciously agreed to discuss their insights into the architecture of these enterprise-class mobile apps. Their discussion will cover the evolution of the product architecture, lessons learned over the past six years, and how to architect state-of-the-art apps in an enterprise environment.

Learn how they went from an under-the-radar consulting project to 35% of Fortune 500 company.

About Our Speakers

Ladd Van Tol, eBay Mobile

Ladd Van Tol is the architecture lead for eBay's native mobile applications, continuing work started at Portland-based Critical Path Software in 2008.

He is a mobile architect specializing in iOS, providing underlying design and engineering for eBay for iPhone and iPad apps.

Galois tech talk: Common crypto mistakes in Android – and how we can make it better
Galois Inc

abstract: If you do a web search for “encrypting Strings in Android”, you’ll find a lot of example code, and they all look pretty similar. They definitely input a String and output gibberish that looks like encrypted text, but they are often incorrect. Crypto is tricky: it’s hard to tell that the gibberish that’s being printed is not good crypto, and it’s hard to tell that the code example you picked up from Stack Overflow has serious flaws.

The problem here is that sites like Google and Stack Overflow rank results based on popularity, but the correctness of crypto isn’t something we can vote about. It’s not a popularity contest. To use it correctly, you have to understand the properties of the algorithm and the security goals of your code. Maybe the bad crypto someone pasted up on the Internet was acceptable for their needs, but there’s a good chance it’s completely unacceptable for yours.

In this talk, we’ll discuss the use of a very common crypto algorithm, AES, and show how code examples on the Internet usually make serious mistakes in how they use AES libraries. What are the consequences of these mistakes and what are more reasonable defaults. We’ll also talk a bit about our simple Android library that tries to do AES right.

More information on the Tozny blog: http://tozny.com/blog/encrypting-strings-in-android-lets-make-better-mistakes/

bio: Isaac is a security researcher at Galois where he has lead authentication and collaboration projects for the DoD and IC. Isaac earned his master’s degree in Cybersecurity from the University of Maryland, University College, and his B.S. in Computer Science from Ohio State University. In 2013, Isaac founded Tozny, a Galois spin-off company aimed at solving the password conundrum. Easier and more secure than passwords, Tozny replaces passwords with an easy-to-use cryptographic key on a user’s mobile phone.

Google Development Group (GDG) PDX Meetup - All About Kotlin
eBay Community Lounge

This month we're going to discuss Kotlin! If you haven't heard of Kotlin, it's a new language created by JetBrains (the people behind the people behind Android Studio). Kotlin is 100% compatible with java and android, and can be used in existing android projects mixed with java classes. There is incredible IDE support and the language itself is very modern, borrowing many concepts from functional languages such as Scala, but being much more accessible to java developers.

We will have a presentation about Kotlin basics and I encourage you to bring laptops to play with it as we will reserve some time for group work where we all play with the language together.

If you want to participate in that portion of the meetup, please have Android Studio installed along with the Kotlin plugin.

Details of Kotlin can be found at:
