Oyeleye Christopher A., Daramola Comfort Y. and Akinpelu James A.

Researches in the development of efficient security models, policies and standards for the Android platform has increased significantly in recent times. Android suffers from the widespread security threats and malware due to the lack of efficient security tools for protection. However, recent studies on android mobile platform security stressed that Mobile Botnets, Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM)-based Pivot Attacks and Malicious Applications are the major security challenges of the mobile operating environment. In this paper, a robust and efficient Android Intrusion detection system middleware Application is developed to address the major security vulnerabilities infiltrating the android Mobile platform. The application is developed using the Java 2 Mobile Enterprise (J2ME) platform. The proposed Android Intrusion Detection System (Mob-AIDS) was evaluated based on users assessment to determine its efficiency in terms of graphical user interface, Mobile resource conservation, reliability and performance. Questionnaire and oral interview are tools used to gather relevant data to evaluate the performance of the system. Results of the analysis of the respondents data revealed that Mob-AIDS has sufficient capability to prevent unauthorized or anomalous access into the android Mobile enterprise and help realize a more secured and reliable operating environment.
