New book: Application Security for the Android Platform

Hi all,

I'd like to share with this group my first book, Application Security for the Android Platform, that has been published by O'Reilly. If you're developing for Android, you should pick up a copy and learn how to make your apps more robust, rugged, and secure.

This book will educate readers on the need for application security and secure coding practices when designing any app. No prior knowledge of security or secure programming techniques is assumed. The book will discuss the need for such practices, how the Android environment is structured with respect to security considerations, what services and techniques are available on the platform to protect data, and how developers can build and code applications that address the risk to their applications and the data processed by them. This text is especially important now, as Android is fast becoming the mobile platform target of choice for attackers attempting to steal data from mobile devices.

Love to hear what you all think!

It looks an interesting reading and absolutely an important subject.
I have to move this post to an appropriate forum but I will add a link to your book in "Android FAQ" page.
Thank you.

Forgot to mention it earlier, but I have reviewed the book and like it.
