IT-Studywork 2013

My bachelors’ thesis is up for voting at IT-talents.de till 11th may. If you got 1 minute of time, head over there and vote for me.

The title of the thesis is Enhanced Android Security to prevent Privilege Escalation. The full version and the presentation slides can be downloaded in the publications area. There is also a Droicon talk, which is mainly based upon my findings of this thesis. Check it out, if you are interested.

Writing a Thesis is Fun

Stuff, that I stumbled upon, while writing my Bachelor’s thesis. Some might be funnier than others.

 

The Jailbreaker cannot always live in Maryland and give sweet candy to everyone!

/* All this GUI stuff I assembled together via various
* howto’s and small code snippets found on the web. So dont
* wonder about this strange looking buttons etc.
*/

[Source] – Did not see the app running. But by reading the code, this is just how a standard button in Android looks like.

 

You are in a hurry, and you don’t want to read this man page.

[Source] – Abosulutely right. But I still need the information…

 

What you need: […] A decent Internet connection & reliable electricity 🙂

If you really absolutely need more capacity,
you can ask a wizard to enlarge me.

[LaTeX logs] – Seriously. I really abolutely need to get my thesis compiled!

Mendeley + BibTeX + Websites

I had some trouble to tell my LaTeX setup to correctly work with the .bib file, that is exported from mendeley.

Now I ended up, modifying my bibliography style to include the field urldate. I just changed the field lastchecked to urldate. The new style is called plainurldate.
