PrimAndroid: privacy policy modelling and analysis for android applications
Benats, Guillaume; Bandara, Arosha K.; Yu, Yijun; Colin, Jean-Noel; Nuseibeh, Bashar
The rapid growth of mobile applications has imposed new threats to privacy: users often nd it challenging to ensure that their privacy policies are consistent with the requirements of a diverse range of of mobile applications that access personal information under different contexts. This problem exacerbates when applications de- pend on each other and therefore share permissions to access resources in ways that are opaque to an end-user. To meet the needs of representing privacy requirements and of resolving dependencies issues in privacy policies, we propose an extension to the P-RBAC model for reasoning about plausible scenarios that can exploit such weaknesses of mobile systems. This work has been evaluated using the case studies on several Android mobile applications.
