With the rise of smartphones and the increasing impact of mobile applications on everyday life, mobile software engineering has become a popular research topic. A desired outcome of these research efforts is efficient application development with lower cost, but with high-quality software...
Mobile antivirus technologies incorporate static analysis which involves the analysis of programs without its execution. This technique relies on pattern matching against a signature repository to identify malware, which can be easily tricked by transformation techniques such as obfuscation....
Most modern smartphones are equipped with barometer sensors. Accessing barometers does not require any permission or user notification, as it is deemed to be harmless. We show, however, that by simply reading low-rate barometer's samples, any background application can detect user's finger taps...
The continuous increase in the use of mobile devices has been driving research in the improvement of the energy consumption of these devices and the applications running on them. In this thesis, we present a tool that helps Android developers understand the implications of their changes to the...
The Android operating system is increasingly exposed to a growing list of dangerous malware attacks, these attacks cost users and businesses. There is considerable research into Android malware detection, malware behavior, interaction and permissions. However, there is much less research effort...
