Abstract

The proliferation and daily use of mobile devices for both personal and business use have increased exponentially in recent years. However, the ability to leverage this technology in military environments has been limited by Information Assurance (IA) requirements and the challenges associated with the short obsolescence windows of commercial mobile platforms. This effort will alleviate these issues through the development of an Android Security Toolkit which will be certified for use onboard Navy platforms to support nuclear propulsion operations, maintenance, and training. Proper mobile device security is extremely complex – the solution must consider the physical device itself, the operating system (OS), the data the device holds, the data the device transmits, and the network to which the device connects. The native Android OS does not provide the required level of security across all of these areas in order for Android mobile devices to be used by the Navy to process sensitive data. Therefore, layers of security must be added to Android devices to make them secure. Our solution will be built upon the Samsung KNOX mobile security framework.
