Web applications on mobile devices depend on the ability to access services or data associated with the phone platform – whether it is access to information about the phone’s location, or access to personal information – and application environments need to provide access to these features. In the past, this has been a problem because there is no standardised mechanism for a web application to do this. During 2008, the OMTP launched the BONDI initiative to address this shortfall, and published the BONDI v1.0 specification in May 2009.
This talk will examine this and other security aspects of the BONDI specification. It explains the key requirements and constraints that BONDI sought to address, and explains the security concepts, architecture and specification in detail.
