In this article, we will discuss broken cryptography in Android applications. Broken cryptography attacks come into the picture when an app developer wants to take advantage of encryption in his application. This article covers the possible ways where vulnerabilities associated with broken cryptography may be introduced in Android apps. We will also see some of the ways an attacker can exploit this kind of vulnerability. Broken cryptography in Android apps can be introduced due to various reasons. The two main reasons as mentioned in OWASP Mobile Top 10 Projects are: Using a weak algorithm for encryption/decryption Using a strong encryption algorithm but implementing it in an insecure way
