Android Application Security: A Semantics and Context-Aware - download pdf or read online

By Mu Zhang,Heng Yin

This SpringerBrief explains the rising cyber threats that undermine Android software safety. It extra explores the chance to leverage the state of the art semantics and context–aware innovations to protect opposed to such threats, together with zero-day Android malware, deep software program vulnerabilities, privateness breach and inadequate safety warnings in app descriptions. 

The authors start via introducing the heritage of the sector, explaining the overall working method, programming positive factors, and safeguard mechanisms. The authors seize the semantic-level habit of cellular functions and use it to reliably observe malware editions and zero-day malware. subsequent, they suggest an automated patch iteration strategy to become aware of and block harmful info movement. A bytecode rewriting process is used to restrict privateness leakage. User-awareness, a key issue of safety dangers, is addressed by means of immediately translating security-related software semantics into average language descriptions. widespread habit mining is used to find and compress universal semantics. accordingly, the produced descriptions are security-sensitive, human-understandable and concise.
By protecting the history, present threats, and destiny paintings during this box, the short is acceptable for either execs in and advanced-level scholars operating in cellular safeguard and purposes. it's precious for researchers, as well.
