Abstract : The development of mobile technologies and services has contributed to the large-scale deployment of smartphones and tablets. These environments are exposed to a wide range of security attacks and may contain critical information about users such as contact directories and phone calls. Assessing configuration vulnerabilities is a key challenge for maintaining their security, but this activity should be performed in a lightweight manner in order to minimize the impact on their scarce resources. In this paper we present a novel approach for assessing configuration vulnerabilities in mobile devices by using a probabilistic cost-efficient security framework. We put forward a probabilistic assessment strategy supported by a mathematical model and detail our assessment framework based on OVAL vulnerability descriptions. We also describe an implementation prototype and evaluate its feasibility through a comprehensive set of experiments.
