 You don't need to make a debug build.  There have been lots of discussions
on these groups about debugging, for various scenarios (native code,
attaching to running processes, etc0.

1. Keystore

Hi everybody,

I am working on a project that requires to store sensitive data on an
android mobile phone. Up to now, it seems that the suitable place to
store that data is the private folder that is owned by the
application. However, in a rooted phone this folder can be accessed

Other alternative is related to encryption. Again, the point is where
to store the corresponding key. The security API of android provides a
keystore class that can contain cryptographic keys. Does anybody knows
where this file is stored?,  is it necessary to create a keystore for
each application that required it?  and  how secure is the access to
the information in this file by unauthorized applications?.

Any idea or suggestions will be welcome!



2. Android sensor permissions

I have a follow up question on Android permission checking.
Can someone shed some light on how sensor data is protected by the
For example, take GPS location, if I grant the "ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"
permission, how does that work in the location manager to grant
or deny an application to the GPS location info. I know that the
ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permission is not associated with a GID, so
checking should not be done by a GID checking on a file for GPS info.
So how exactly is that done?
I have read somewhere that the GPS location is written to /data/
dev/smd27, I can't find this file, maybe because I am using the
emulator and there is not a real GPS chip which stores the data
Thanks very much,
