Title Context-Based Mobile Security Enclave.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 63p
Personal Author J. C. Carter
Abstract Currently, there are no secure access control methods of controlling restricted material access on a mobile device using context-based authentication methods. Simple challenge/response protocols do not provide the security required for some restricted information. A lost/misplaced device or compromised password can easily lead to the compromise of any restricted information to which the device may have access. Due to the inherent portability of a mobile device, a broader, more comprehensive set of access controls is required. This thesis will research and build a prototype application that will allow access to restricted information, stored on the device itself, based on a set of predefined contexts using the device's own hardware.
