Research Trend: Data leakage on Android applications +

Research Trend Description

One approach of Android security is the analysis for detecting potential information leaks. The current technical analyses (as static analysis, dynamic analysis, hybrid of static and dynamic analysis) only focus on action within a single application, while the coordinated action of several applications for the malicious purpose is becoming popular. This study proposes a hybrid approach that combines static and dynamic analysis to detect information leak as a result of the coordinated action of multiple applications. In this context, we call it inter-application malware.
