Xiaojiang Du, Temple University, USA

keynote title:Camera-based Attacks on Android Phones

Today’s smartphones are very powerful and are widely used. Android is the most popular mobile operating system and over 80% mobile phones use Android. Android security has been extensively studied by researchers. However, few works have studied mobile phone multimedia security. In this work, we focus on security issues related with mobile phone cameras. Specifically, we discover several new attacks that are based on phone cameras. We implement the attacks on real Android phones and demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the attacks. Furthermore, we propose a lightweight defense scheme that can effectively detect these attacks. This work has been published in the IEEE Communications Magazine in March 2014.
