PhD project description

In order to prevent attacks against smartphones and tablets, dedicated security applications are deployed on the mobile devices themselves. However, these applications may have a significant impact on the device resources. Users may be tempted to uninstall or disable them with the objective of increasing battery lifetime and avoiding configuration operations and updates. The PhD project aims at proposing a new approach for outsourcing mobile security functions as cloud-based services. The outsourced functions should be dynamically activated, configured and composed using software-defined networking (SDN) and virtualization capabilities such as NFV.
