#android   #androiddev     Hey +Romain Guy  ! 
I had doubt regarding Security of Account Manager and strength of progaurd code obfuscation in rooted android devices . 

 I am prepopulating DB in app ia m making . I have encrypted DB using SQLCipher (http://sqlcipher.net/) since the DB of app is key IP and I need offline access of it so that features in app work even if i dont have internet .

Now I need to store the key for decrypting DB using SQLCipher before querying securely .

Problem I am facing is where to store this key since device can be rooted it poses major security threat . I do have code obfuscated using progaurd .
Even if i get the key using https when the user first signs in . where do i store it ?

After researching further i realized 2 alternatives but none of them seem secure , 
1) Account manager  http://security-n-tech.blogspot.in/2011/01/security-issue-exposed-by-android.html 

2)Encrypting key obtained before saving in preferences ? But then the encryption logic will be in code and obfuscation is hackable . 

This is a major security concern because there seems no way to securely store information . Can you suggest any way out ? 

Thanks a lot for your time ! :)

Store the key with encryption based on a user token. The user will have to enter the token if not connected to the internet, else it can be fetched from the server.
In any case, you can't protect from a malicious root user.
Also look at DexGuard (more elaborate than ProGuard)

The "App of the Week" company from the middle of nowhere, India

I bet you can't find where Global Delight is located on the map. http://www.globaldelight.com/

Udupi, India isn't exactly the place that is known for starting great startups. But last week it won Apple's "App of the Week" award (and the week before that it won "Best of Show" at MacWorld). How did it do this? Well, Rahul Arun Shetty spent 30 minutes with me to tell me all about this innovative company and the apps it makes (It is the second time that it has won MacWorld's best of show award, by the way.

What does their newest app, Game Your Video, do? It lets you make better videos with your iPhone. Lots of fun to play with. Get it on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/game-your-video/id496232649?mt=8

"We have always been good at technology," Shetty says.

Entrepreneurs should watch this for some tips. I learned:

1. Go to weird classes at Apple's Dev conference and pay attention to new technologies being demoed (they were one of 15 attendees in a session where they showed off all sorts of new video technology).

2. Don't pay attention to being in the middle of no where. It doesn't matter anymore.

3. Aim at a market that has lots of people and is growing rapidly. Duh. But they did it and found a way to beat all those San Francisco companies to making a better product. More people will buy a smartphone with a video camera tomorrow than bought one yesterday.

4. Make sure that your design is top-rate.

Great app, hope to see more from this little company in the middle of nowhere, India.
