Security Enhanced (SE) Android

A session at LinuxCon North America 2012

  • Stephen Smalley

Wednesday 29th August, 2012

10:45am to 11:30am (PST)

SE Android is a project to identify and address critical gaps in the security of Android, initially by enabling and applying SELinux in Android. In this talk, we describe the motivation and background of SE Android, describe our working reference implementation and how it mitigates real world Android exploits and vulnerabilities, discuss how SE Android has evolved since its initial public release in January, and provide an update on the status of merging SE Android support into the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

The targeted audience is anyone with an interest in raising the bar in Android security. While the presentation will include detailed technical information suitable for developers, it should also provide even non-technical audience members with a basic understanding of how SE Android would benefit Android security (and themselves).
