Researchers propose new algorithm to protect mobile devices

New algorithm for detecting ARM-based vulnerabilities will provide security to the processors before they are deployed

By CBR Staff Writer

Researchers from University of California, Irvine have proposed a new algorithm which claimed to filter system vulnerabilities in ARM-based processors which are commonly used in smartphones and tablets.

The researchers claim that ARM-based processors in these devices can contain security vulnerabilities that can make the mobile devices more susceptible to hacking.

Zi-Shun Huang will present his paper, "Return-Oriented Vulnerabilities in ARM Executables" detailing the new algorithm and demonstrate experimental results of detecting vulnerabilities on a Texas Instruments’ Stellaris microcontroller.

Huang said the new algorithm for detecting ARM-based vulnerabilities will provide security to the processors before they are deployed.

"This technology has impact on widespread embedded devices, making them safer and reducing the risk of attack."
