Security Knowledge Base for Android Applications

Abstract : During the last years, the number of mobile devices has been growing rapidly as well as the number of dedicated applications. Such devices are exposed to a variety of threats: hackers, malware, etc. For these reasons, several tools have been developed to assess and analyse the security of Android applications. However, there is no data base regrouping the results of these tools which is publicly available. Some security data bases exist, but they are too focused on the malware side of security. The goal of this internship is to develop a security knowledge base for Android regrouping applications, analysis tools and results. It will allow different kind of users (developers, researchers, etc.) to invoke a variety of tools and compare the results and understand unwanted or malicious behaviour of applications. It will also provide ranking an prioritisation of analysis results based on metrics proposed in this report.
