mobile device resource monitor, we demonstrate the feasibility of remotely detecting the types of applications (i.e., CPU intensive, I/O intensive or non-CPU intensive) actively executing on a mobile device. The distinguishing characteristic of this method is its uncanny ability to remotely infer the types of applications executing on a mobile device when there is no native network traffic being generated from it. To do this, we inconspicuously solicit network traffic from the mobile device by… CONTINUE READING
