Securing Application in Mobile Computing

Iehab Al Rassan and Mohannad A. Al Sheikh
Abstract— Smart phones and PDAs face major security concerns and problems in changing technology landscape [1]. Security in the mobile computing environment is a serious concern that is important to be addressed. The main motivation of this paper is to come up with a mechanism to ensure user’s private data is protected and secured in the event of a mobile device being lost or stolen. We will address how to secure the applications and its data that run on mobile handled devices by providing and offering security capabilities to protect these devices. We will propose a new solution and technique for securing applications in mobile devices to resolve some of the security concerns in mobile computing environment. The proposed solution provides efficient way to secure user’s private data in case of mobile device being lost or stolen by sending predefined commands via SMS messages to the stolen or lost mobile device to protect the applications and their data using the necessary action (delete the private data and send back the location information of stolen device to the secondary emergency phone number).

Index Terms— Smart phones, mobile, SMS, GPS, android, security.
