Confidentiality for Multithreaded Dalvik Programs by SIFUM Security

Non-interference properties on programs describe the absence illicit information flows. We focus on non-interference properties for the byte-code language of the Dalvik virtual machine (DVM). The DVM executes programs on Android, a popular operating system for mobile phones. Most programs for Android make extensive use of multi-threading to ensure smooth responses to user interactions. We introduce an abstract transition system that supports multi-threading and instantiate it with a subset of the DVM. To capture the notion of secure/legal information flow for this abstract transition system, we introduce a bisimula- tion based non-interference property that exploits the intended data usage of concurrently executed threads.
