SeraphimDroid is educational application for android devices that helps users learn about risks and threats coming from other android applications.
SeraphimDroid is educational application for android devices that helps users learn about risks and threats coming from other android applications. SeraphimDroid scans your devices and teaches you about risks and threats coming from application permissions. Also this project will deliver paper on android permissions, their regular use, risks and malicious use. In second version SeraphimDroid will evolve to application firewall for android devices not allowing malicious SMS or MMS to be sent, USSD codes to be executed or calls to be called without user permission and knowledge.
Project development is done on GitHub: https://github.com/nikolamilosevic86/owasp-seraphimdroid
The aim of this project is to research all the risks coming from permissions and to actively alarm user of the application about those risks. Also, using different kind of heuristics SeraphimDroid application should keep user data and money safe. Application should prevent other applications to execute some action that cost money without user's knowledge and acknowledgement. At the later stage application should using heuristics act as anti malware application.
The secondary goal of the project is to publish documentation about researched topics, such as how can some permissions be misused, what are the heuristic approaches to prevent other application executing malicious actions etc.
