Abstract : Mobile computing devices and the services offered by them are utilized by millions of users on a daily basis. However, they operate in hostile environments getting exposed to a wide variety of threats. Accordingly, vulnerability management mechanisms are highly required. We present in this demo a novel approach for increasing the security of mobile devices by efficiently detecting vulnerable configurations. In that context, we propose Ovaldroid, an OVAL-based distributed framework for ensuring safe configurations within the Android platform and we present an implementation prototype developed to this end.
