Mu Zhang,Heng Yin's Android Application Security: A Semantics and Context-Aware PDF

By Mu Zhang,Heng Yin

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

The authors start by way of introducing the history of the sphere, explaining the final working process, programming beneficial properties, 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 notice and block harmful info circulate. A bytecode rewriting strategy is used to restrict privateness leakage. User-awareness, a key issue of safety hazards, is addressed through immediately translating security-related application semantics into normal language descriptions. widespread habit mining is used to find and compress universal semantics. for this reason, the produced descriptions are security-sensitive, human-understandable and concise.
By masking the history, present threats, and destiny paintings during this box, the short is appropriate for either execs in and advanced-level scholars operating in cellular safety and functions. it truly is helpful for researchers, as well.
