Testing The Limits of Security on Android Devices
Dr. Michael Jipping, Hope College
Security on desktop computers has had much work done. Security on smartphone or handheld devices still needs investigation. This project sought to test the boundaries of security on Android 2.1 systems. The phone systems were tested by attempting to load Trojan horses on them, by click-jacking them, and by taking control of them without the user’s knowledge or permission. We also investigated systems that can be used to attack Android devices. These included simple cross-scripting and network management tools.
