An Architecture for Secure Mobile Devices
Sprache des Titels:
Mobile devices such as smart phones have become one of the preferred
means of accessing digital services, both for consuming and creating
content. Unfortunately, securing such mobile devices is inherently
difficult for a number of reasons. In this article, we review recent
research results, systematically analyze the technical issues of
securing mobile device platforms against different threats, and discuss
a resulting and currently unsolved problem: how to create an end-to-end
secure channel between the digital service (e.g.\ a secure wallet
application on an embedded smart card or an infrastructure service
connected over wireless media) and the user. Although the problem
has been known for years and technical approaches start appearing
in products, the user interaction aspects have remained unsolved.
We discuss the reasons for this difficulty and suggest potential
approaches to create human-verifiable secure communication with components
or services within partially untrusted devices.
