Protect Your Android Apps
It is a common tactic among Android malware makers to repackage a legitimate app with attack code, and then re-release it to the marketplace in the hope that users will confuse the fake app with the real one. These malware apps can collect user information such as bookmarks, GPS coordinates, and handset information. They can also push unwanted content such as changing the browser’s home page, inserting advertising, or sending premium SMS messages that can cost users a great deal of money.
As you’ll learn in this seven-page paper, “Protecting Android Applications with Secure Code Signing Certificates,” developers usually find out the hard way that developing for Android requires a thorough understanding of market hazards, including:
Users’ lack of trust in freeware products downloaded from the Internet
No formal vetting process to authenticate developers for Android applications
No existing trusted root for Android applications
Need for developers to maintain control of private keys for 25 years in order to provide new versions of applications
Improper management of signing keys leaves them vulnerable to loss or theft
