1. Shambra, Stephen M. Automated vulnerability assessment of mobile device vulnerabilities.

Degree: MS, Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2017, Mississippi State University

Mobile device security presents a unique challenge in the realm of cyber security, one which is difficult to assess and ultimately defend. Mobile devices, like other computing devices, should possess a secure environment by which a mobile user may operate safely and securely. However, insecure coding when developing applications, incomplete assessment tools to determine platform/application security, and security shortcomings in the Android platform and mobile communications standards result in an insecure environment. This thesis presents an analysis of aspects of a Mobile Station to identify components that contribute to the attack surface. An investigation is conducted to highlight vulnerabilities at the Application, Communications, and Resource Layers. The thesis also identifies current efforts to assess and identify mobile vulnerabilities and weaknesses in application and system settings. Finally, an automated vulnerability assessment solution is developed and introduced in this thesis that can aid in combating potential threats to mobile security. Advisors/Committee Members: Sherif Abdelwahed (chair), Maxwell Young (committee member), Dave Dampier (committee member).

Subjects/Keywords: Vulnerability Assessment; Mobile Security; Cyber Security
