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

By Mu Zhang,Heng Yin

This SpringerBrief explains the rising cyber threats that undermine Android software safeguard. It extra explores the chance to leverage the state of the art semantics and context–aware ideas to guard 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 historical past of the sector, explaining the final working approach, programming positive aspects, and safeguard mechanisms. The authors catch the semantic-level habit of cellular functions and use it to reliably become aware of malware versions and zero-day malware. subsequent, they suggest an automated patch new release strategy to become aware of and block harmful details movement. A bytecode rewriting process is used to restrict privateness leakage. User-awareness, a key issue of protection hazards, is addressed by means of immediately translating security-related application semantics into normal language descriptions. common habit mining is used to find and compress universal semantics. accordingly, the produced descriptions are security-sensitive, human-understandable and concise.
By overlaying the heritage, present threats, and destiny paintings during this box, the short is acceptable for either execs in and advanced-level scholars operating in cellular safety and functions. it truly is important for researchers, as well.
