Technological advances in recent years have provided significant increases
in the computing power and networking capabilities of mobile devices. For
example, many smartphones and personal digital assistants (PDAs) currently
employ powerful processors and have Internet broadband connectivity that
rival that of desktop computers and laptops.  For these reasons, mobile
devices are being used for many applications including social networking,
and business applications like: online banking. Because these devices are
ubiquitous, they are high-value targets for cyber criminals that seek
financial gains.
Mobile devices are still suffering from many security challenges. The
security policy offered by the mobile platforms is loose because it allows
developers and users to install any application. As a result, we witnessed
an increasing number of attacks and malware targeting mobile platforms like
Android and iOS, and which caused serious issues for the user. For example,
the malware can integrate compromised mobile devices into a botnet, it can
also send SMS messages to premium numbers without the user’s knowledge, and
hence the user’s bill is charged. In addition, the users are increasingly
using their devices to handle their private information. However, the
devices provide insufficient data security and data protection.
This workshop aims at gathering researchers and practitioners working on
mobile computing security to share ideas and new research innovations in
the field.
The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
• Smartphone security.
• Vulnerability analysis for smartphones.
• Data protection and privacy.
• Security and privacy of operating systems, middleware, and applications.
• Evaluation of mobile security solutions.
• Mobile malware collection, statistics, and analysis;
• Mobile malware detection.
• Bots on mobile devices.
• Mobile botnet detection.
• Mobile botnet design and countermeasures.
• Reverse engineering and automated analysis of mobile malware.
• Traffic monitoring and detection algorithms for mobile platforms.
• Cloud security and privacy solutions for mobile devices.
• Mobile device forensics.
• Mobile services and social networking security.
• Security for smart payment applications.
• Test beds and case studies for secure mobile platforms.
• Formal models and architecture design for secure mobile platforms.
• Virtualization solutions for mobile security.
• Web browser security on mobile devices.
