Abstract: In the Android system, applications (apps) execute on the same platform that manages all system resources, where resource accesses are regulated through a permission-based mechanism. As a result, malicious apps get chances to abuse resources that are available on the Android platform. In this paper, we propose resource virtualization as a security mechanism to confine resource-abusing Android apps. The physical resources on a mobile device are virtualized to a different virtual view for selected Android apps. Resource virtualization simulates a partial but consistent virtual view of the Android resources. Therefore, it can not only confine the resource-abusing apps effectively, but also ensure the usability of them. We implement a system prototype, RVDroid, and evaluate it with real-world apps of various types. Our results demonstrate its effectiveness on malicious Android apps and its compatibility and usability on benign ones. © 2013 IEEE.
