Abstract:
his work introduces a novel Android monitoring app named AMon. It is aimed at collecting device related information from several sources: communications, /proc filesystem, applications and device usage. The information is dynamically gathered over time and its execution does not require to get special privileges or to be system root. In order to assess AMon capabilities, we have used it as the acquisition module of a subsequent security incident detection process. The results obtained show a good performance in terms of battery consumption, CPU and RAM usage, as well as overall system overhead. In order to contribute to the community, AMon is available at a public repository for free use and improvement.
