Recent Research Into Android Object Recognition and Security

Posted by Charles Norona December - 17 - 2010 - Friday Comments Off

This past semester I have conducted some research in two of my courses that were conducted with Android. The first is an investigation into the privilege escalation attack on Android where activities or components can access restricted components by proxy. The other project was an attempt to implement a Speeded-Up Robust Features (SURF) object recognition mechanism on Android without relying on the computations being done out in the cloud. In other words, the calculating interest point descriptors is done on the mobile device. Reports for both research projects can be found in experiment documents section for those who are interested.
