The design of Android is based on a set of unprotected shared resources, including those inherited from Linux (e.g., Linux public directories). However, the dramatic development in Android applications (app for short) makes available a large amount of public background information (e.g., social networks, public online services), which can potentially turn(More)
To understand the gap between theory and practice for oblivious cloud storage, we experimentally evaluate four representative Oblivious RAM (ORAM) designs on Amazon S3. We replay realistic application traces to these ORAMs in order to understand whether they can meet the demands of various real applications using cloud storage as a backend. We find that(More)
Android is a fast evolving system, with new updates coming out one after another. These updates often completely overhaul a running system, replacing and adding tens of thousands of files across Android's complex architecture, in the presence of critical user data and applications (apps for short). To avoid accidental damages to such data and existing apps,(More)
Side-channel risks of Intel SGX have recently attracted great attention. Under the spotlight is the newly discovered page-fault attack, in which an OS-level adversary induces page faults to observe the page-level access patterns of a protected process running in an SGX enclave. With almost all proposed defense focusing on this attack, little is known about(More)
Hidden sensitive operations (HSO) such as stealing privacy user data upon receiving an SMS message are increasingly utilized by mobile malware and other potentially-harmful apps (PHAs) to evade detection. Identification of such behaviors is hard, due to the challenge in triggering them during an app’s runtime. Current static approaches rely on the trigger(More)
As energy is one of most important aspects for evaluating algorithms’ performance, it’s crucial to provide a tool to measure the energy consumed. There still was not satisfying solution to monitor energy consumption of every sensor node in large-scale wireless sensor network. In this paper, we propose a new real-time energy monitoring schema as a function(More)
Energy efficiency is a critical criterion in wireless sensor networks (WSN). Given the energy consumption of a node, or even the whole network, is precisely measured. Great improvement can be expected in the WSN system optimization. In this paper, we propose a versatile nodal energy consumption monitoring schema, which precisely measures the energy(More)
