Open Source Android Vulnerability Detection Tools: A Survey
Since last decade, smartphones have become an integral part of everyone's life. Having the ability to handle many useful and attractive applications, smartphones sport flawless functionality and small sizes leading to their exponential growth. Additionally, due to the huge user base and a wide range of functionalities, these mobile platforms have become a popular source of information to the public through several Apps provided by the DHS Citizen Application Directory. Such wide audience to this platform is also making it a huge target for cyber- attacks. While Android, the most popular open source mobile platform, has its base set of permissions to protect the device and resources, it does not provide a security framework to defend against any attack. This paper surveys threat, vulnerability and security analysis tools, which are open source in nature, for the Android platform and systemizes the knowledge of Android security mechanisms. Additionally, a comparison of three popular tools is presented.
