Security objectives, controls and metrics development for an Android smartphone application

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    Security in Android smartphone platforms deployed in public safety and security mobile networks is a remarkable challenge. We analyse the security objectives and controls for these systems based on an industrial risk analysis. The target system of the investigation is an Android platform utilized for public safety and security mobile network. We analyse how a security decision making regarding this target system can be supported by effective and efficient security metrics. In addition, we describe implementation details of security controls for authorization and integrity objectives of a demonstration of the target system.
