Android Plugins Development For Detecting Software Vulnerabilities

Mobile malicious injections may leak confidential information to the attacker, leading to system crashes, malicious database manipulation, and even database corruption.

For example, Input validation can detect unauthorized input, such as code injection or malicious SQL injection, before it is processed by the application. Therefore, to minimize malformed data from entering the system, unauthorized input, such as code injection or malicious injection, should be detected and sanitized before it is processed by the application.

We will design and develop an open source Mobile Secure Software Development API plugin based on FindSecurityBugs for Android Studio IDE which will check your mobile project to detect any untrusted input and output and other security vulnerability to prevent mobile apps from attacks.

This is a paid project from a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant ($10/hr, max 100 hr).
