Multilevel Android Protection Exploit
Students: Felix Rohrer, Kenneth Nimley and Nebiyu Feleke
Smartphones have become an emerging platform for both personal and business applications. With almost half of smartphone market share, android operating system (OS) is an open-source platform based on Linux available on a variety of mobile devices. While the open nature of Android offers great flexibility and popularity, it also makes the android more vulnerable to many security threats. After analyzing more than dozen of solutions proposed by different research groups, our research proposes a multilevel protection framework on android to prevent, avoid and detect attacks. The proposed research involves three research projects to address android security at three different levels: user, developer, and system level, with each student leading one research project.
