  • BAMTA: Behavioral Analyzer for Mobile Threatening Apps
    • Coordinator(s):   Paulo Lício de Geus
    • Validity:               2013 - Current
    • Description:       Samsung sponsored. BAMTA dynamically analyzes Android applications, obtaining their network traffic, API function calls and system calls traces, and producing reports about their exhibited behavior.
  • BehEMOT: Behavior Evaluation from Malware Observation Tool
    • Coordinator(s):   Paulo Lício de Geus, André Ricardo Abed Grégio
    • Validity:               2010 - Current
    • Description:       A tool to analyze malware behavior in a non-intrusive and effective way that extends the analysis possibilities to cover malware samples that bypass current approaches, also fixing some issues with them and filling a gap in the field.
  • FORTE: Forense digital tempestiva e eficiente
    • Coordinator(s):   Ricardo Dahab
    • Validity:               2014 - Current
    • Description:       Este projeto objetiva o desenvolvimento de pesquisas e capacitação na área de forense computacional, de forma a enfrentar os desafios causados pelo explosivo crescimento do uso de recursos computacionais em todos os setores da sociedade. Esse crescimento se dá, por um lado, pela farta disponibilidade de dispositivos, especialmente os móveis como telefones e tablets para uso pessoal, bem como os de uso profissional e aqueles embarcados e ubíquos na chamada Internet das Coisas.
