Robust App Clone Detection Based on Similarity of UI Structure

Yangyu Hu, Guosheng Xu, Bowen Zhang, Kun Lai, Guoai Xu, Miao Zhang
2020 IEEE Access  
In this paper, we propose a robust app clone detection method based on the similarity of UI structure.  ...  App clone detection has received extensive attentions from our research community, and a number of approaches were proposed, which mainly rely on code or visual similarity of the apps.  ...  To address these limitations, we propose a new approach to detect app clone based on the similarity of UI structure.  ...

Towards a scalable resource-driven approach for detecting repackaged Android applications

Yuru Shao, Xiapu Luo, Chenxiong Qian, Pengfei Zhu, Lei Zhang
2014 Proceedings of the 30th Annual Computer Security Applications Conference on - ACSAC '14  
More precisely, we define new features for characterizing apps, investigate two kinds of algorithms for searching similar apps, and propose a two-stage methodology to speed up the detection.  ...  Repackaged Android applications (or simply apps) are one of the major sources of mobile malware and also an important cause of severe revenue loss to app developers.  ...  We propose a novel approach that leverages new features extracted from core resources and codes to detect repackaged apps.  ...

CodeMatch: obfuscation won't conceal your repackaged app

Leonid Glanz, Sven Amann, Michael Eichberg, Michael Reif, Ben Hermann, Johannes Lerch, Mira Mezini
2017 Proceedings of the 2017 11th Joint Meeting on Foundations of Software Engineering - ESEC/FSE 2017  
Therefore, two apps, where the obfuscated code bases are very similar, do not have to be repackages of each other.  ...  To reliably detect repackaged apps, we propose a two step approach which first focuses on the identification and removal of the library code in obfuscated apps.  ...  App makers generate apps by processing user created ui designs. Apps generated by the same App maker generally share a similar code base without necessarily being repackages.  ...
