The sudden surge in the mobile market has given developers the ability to create applications that reach millions of potential users. Many applications store sensitive data, which makes them potential targets for malicious individuals. A large majority of developers do not have a background in security making it difficult for them to securely store this data. This research addresses the problem by acting as a guide for developers, allowing them to create attack resistant applications. This is achieved by analysing techniques used by attackers to compromise applications, and illustrating countermeasures, which will give a greater insight into the concept of secure storage. As opposed to many other resources, the research presented is a consolidated resource of security techniques and gives numerous implementation examples, making it straightforward for developers to use.
