Android Application, Malware Detection, Static Analysis, Permission-Based Malware Detection, Signature-Based Malware Detection


Android is known to be the most widely used operating system used in smart-phones and its rapidly increasing popularity has attracted malware developer's attention. Android allows downloading and installation of an application from third-party marketplaces which are unofficial marketplaces. This gives malware developers a golden opportunity to upload a repacked version of a known application on such an unofficial marketplace. Effectively detection of malware in Android devices is a big challenge. There are many detection techniques used for detecting malware devices which are static malware detection technique and dynamic malware detection technique. Static malware detection again gets classified in permission-based malware detection and signature-based malware detection. In this research, we aim to provide accurate malware detection technique by combining these two malware detection techniques which are permission-based as well as signature based. By combing two results using this technique we get an efficient solution. This method is totally different from conventional methods which do not use the hybrid method.
