Abstract

© 2016 IEEE. The explosive growth of mobile technology has brought uncountable benefits to consumers, but it also presents new concerns and provides a platform for cybercrime. In the case of devices running the Android Operating System (OS), concerns have raised as Android has become a major OS in the market. Moreover, even though there have been efforts from Google and the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), among others, towards reducing the impact of security threats in Android, malicious attacks continue to increase in frequency and complexity. Interestingly, bad software development practices still are being considered a major surface attack provider, mainly due to the lack of knowledge or misuse of Android security features. Therefore, this work presents a Web tool, named GARMDROID, aimed to provide security information that will helps Android developers to identify insecure development aspects, saving them from the nuisances associated to the learning of specialized security analysis tools and techniques.
