The Android™ Builders Summit is a technical summit for OEMs, their device manufacturers, integrators, custom builders, and the growing Android and Linux Kernel developer communities. Android is expanding to an increasing number of industry segments in addition to smart phones and tablets. There is a need for the ecosystem of builders to collaborate on a common solution for existing limitations and desired features across all of these device categories. The Android Builders Summit provides an intimate forum for collaboration at the systems level and discussion of core issues and opportunities when designing Android devices. The summit addresses topics ranging from custom builds, alternative middleware, network functionality extensions, Peer to Peer frameworks, USB device support, security, unification of power management, tools and hybrid Android devices among many other topics.

When analysing Android applications for security, there are few types of problems that are commonly found during assessment, but compose the majority of the security flaws found in the Android environment. This talk presents those problems and why most of them are actually flaws in the design of the Android platform and can be avoided on platform side. This talk is focused on Android Internals Developers. It will present some solutions that can be implemented in the Android SDK to improve the security of the android ecosystem and the security of the product itself. This talk is the result of one year of security assessment performed by Samsung in it's products.
