Using IM-Visor to stop untrusted IME apps from stealing sensitive keystrokes

Chen Tian, Yazhe Wang, Peng Liu, Qihui Zhou, Chengyi Zhang
2018 Cybersecurity  
Third-party IME (Input Method Editor) apps are often the preference means of interaction for Android users' input.  ...  Otherwise, IM-Visor replays non-sensitive keystroke touch events for IME apps or replays non-keystroke touch events for other apps.  ...  Acknowledgment We would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments and suggestions.  ...

Better Performance Through Thread-local Emulation

Ali Razeen, Valentin Pistol, Alexander Meijer, Landon P. Cox
2016 Proceedings of the 17th International Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications - HotMobile '16  
For example, the most recent versions of Android compile Dalvik bytecodes to native code at installtime, and apps frequently use third-party native libraries.  ...  In this paper, we argue that the key to good performance is to track only when necessary, e.g., when an app handles sensitive data.  ...  For example, SpanDex [8] quantifies and limits the amount of password information leaked through a malicious app's control flow.  ...
