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 program defense. It extra explores the chance to leverage the state of the art semantics and context–aware strategies to guard 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 through introducing the heritage of the sector, explaining the final working approach, programming positive factors, and protection mechanisms. The authors trap the semantic-level habit of cellular purposes and use it to reliably become aware of malware editions and zero-day malware. subsequent, they suggest an automated patch iteration strategy to realize and block harmful details stream. A bytecode rewriting procedure is used to restrict privateness leakage. User-awareness, a key issue of safeguard dangers, is addressed through instantly translating security-related software semantics into normal language descriptions. common habit mining is used to find and compress universal semantics. therefore, 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 appropriate for either execs in and advanced-level scholars operating in cellular safety and purposes. it truly is worthwhile for researchers, as well.
