Mobile apps continue to consume increasing amounts of sensitive data, such as banking credentials and classified documents. At the same time, the number of smart phone thefts is increasing at a rapid speed. Hence, there is an urgent need to protect sensitive data on lost or stolen mobile devices. We propose a system that develops a solution to protect sensitive data on mobile devices. Our solution will enable adaptive protection by stepping up or stepping down data security based on contextual risk of the device. We implement our solution for the Android platform in the form of an app called Secure-Shell App. Secure-Shell App can support both in-memory and on-disk data protection by transparently encrypting the data and discarding the encryption key, when required, for more protection. We also propose to evaluate it against several popular Android apps.
