    Abstract

    :

    Mobile phone security has become more important in the mobile computing applications. Most data breaches on the mobile devices are typically due to basic security failure, such as weak passwords, data encryption failure and application software vulnerabilities. This paper proposes the Streamlined and Efficient Integrity Protection (SEIP) for the effective protection of mobile devices. The SEIP is implemented by utilizing the malware detection using security policy, permission viewer of mobile apps, memory read and write options, secure SMS transactions and security policy manager. The proposed SEIP can prevent major types of attacks towards system integrity through mobile malware. The security profile manager blocks the mobile app from accessing the internet and other permission, based on the security policy. If the security policy is enabled, permission is blocked and the internet connection is disabled. If the security policy is not enabled, the internet connection is enabled. The experimental result of the proposed SEIP shows low overhead when compared to PC counterpart technology. The size of the security policy is less than 20 KB and requires less than 10 domains and types. The SEIP can be used within a commercially available Linux-based smart phone.
