If you don't know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will sucumb in every battle.
If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
But if you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
The art of war (Sun Tzu)

What's common in Oracle and Samsung? They tried to think differently...


The Android phone makers do everything to customize their devices just make sure they are different. Samsung changed something important under the hood. Samsung thinks differently about the android device encryption. In the presentation we show what Samsung changed in their flagship phones compared to vanilla android firmware. We show how you can get the clear text encryption key through adb and not just that. We cannot make a presentation without Oracle hacking, so we show how they tried to think differently and it is also crypto related. Of course everything will be demonstrated and the tools will be released.
