Enabling generic, multi-layered, and extensible access control on Android.
Android has become the most popular operating system for mobile devices, which makes it a prominent target for malicious software. Its security concept based on app isolation and access control however is unsatisfactory. This projects researches program analyses that ameliorate this situation. For example our system AppGuard enforces security policies at runtime without requiring root permissions.
