Android in terminals and corporate gadgets: Our experience of building COSU architecture

Day 1 /  / Track 2  /  RU / For practicing engineers

Android has made significant progress: now it is not only for common users' work and entertainment, it has become a workhorse employed in hardware products and corporate devices.

There already are out-of-the-box tools for remote control of the system, including those with restriction of user rights — Google's enterprise mobility management (EMM). This API allows us to create COSU (corporate-owned, single-use) devices for executing highly specialized tasks with restriction of user rights. Examples of such devices include payment, verification and stock-taking terminals, interactive signs and smartphone- or tablet-based corporate mobile devices for the employees.

In this talk, Evgeny will share his experience of building this kind of devices, tell about their architecture and limitations of some approaches, and also touch on security measures.
