Registration Opens for Amphion Forum Mobile Security Event in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--

Mocana (News - Alert), the device security leader, announced that registration is now open for the next Amphion Forum event to be held December 12-13 in San Francisco, California. Attendees that register at amphionforum.com before 5:00 p.m. PDT on Monday, September 9 can use priority code "WRAP" and receive a free ticket to the event (regularly priced at $499). The event is hosted by Mocana and presented by SAP, Forrester Research and Codenomicon (News - Alert).

The Amphion Forum is an open, vendor-neutral and cross-industry gathering of industry leaders and technologists building the foundations of the new extended enterprise - those new organizations that transcend traditional boundaries by leveraging disruptive device security and mobile security technologies. The Forum brings together mobility companies with hackers and app security experts, as well as technology leaders from business, academia, and the public sector to discuss the opportunities-and sobering threats-presented by the proliferation of mobile devices and the Internet of Things.

The event, characterized by planners as "part TED and part Meetup" has grown from a single day to a two-day program, with expanded content and networking opportunities for the security, mobility and hacking 'digerati.' Talks will range from the deeply technical to the big-picture strategic, with topics such as: iOS 7 security; threats to critical infrastructure; Android (News - Alert) hacks; app-wrapping and mobile code injection; mobile device maagement (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM); secure containers; mobile hypervisors; and the future of app security automation.

Selected talks include:

  • Mobile Security Vision Keynotes from SAP (News - Alert), Forrester Research, Codenomicon and Mocana;
  • "Android Application Reverse Engineering and Defenses," by Felix Matenaar and Patrick Schulz, Bluebox;
  • "Mobile App Code Injection: the Next Generation," by Erik Peterson, Mocana;
  • "Abusing the Internet of Things: Blackouts, Freakouts, and Stakeouts," by independent researcher Nitesh Dhanjani; and
  • "Finding Undesirable Behaviors in Mobile Apps Using Dynamic Analysis," by Kevin Watkins of Appthority.

"Past attendees cite the heterogeneity of Amphion Forum delegates as one of the best features of the Forum, in that it provides a terrific networking environment mixing industries, expertise and skillsets that ordinarily wouldn't meet," said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP, vice president of market development at Mocana and chair of the Amphion Forum. "That's the recipe we need for solving the tough interdisciplinary problems of mobile security and app management."

Other Amphion Forum sponsors include the Security Innovation Network (SINET), Appthority and Secure Access Technologies.

Registration for Amphion Forum 2013 is now open. To register for the event, visit amphionforum.com.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
