Sensitive (private) information can escape from one app to another using one of the multiple communication methods provided by Android for inter-app communication. This leakage can be malicious. In such a scenario, individual benign app, in collusion with other conspiring apps, if present, can leak the private information. In this work in progress, we present, a new model-checking based approach for inter-app collusion detection. The proposed technique takes into account simultaneous analysis

To evaluate the efficacy of our tool, we developed Android apps that exhibit collusion through inter-app communication. Eight demonstrative sets of apps have been contributed to widely used test dataset named DroidBench. Our experiments show that proposed technique can accurately detect the presence/absence of collusion among apps. To the best of our knowledge, our proposal has improved detection capability than other techniques.
