Overview

The DroidSafe project develops novel program analysis techniques to diagnose and remove malicious code from Android mobile applications. The DroidSafe project is developed by MIT's Center for Resilient Software and the Kestrel Institute. The core of our system is a static information-flow analysis that operates on either Java bytecode for an application or an application's APK. The DroidSafe team co-designed a semantic model of Android runtime behaviors and a static information-flow analysis to achieve acceptable precision, accuracy, and scalability for real-world Android applications.
