4. Projects

  • 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.
  • SICA: Energy-Efficient Security for SoC devices
    • Coordinator(s):   Julio Lopez
    • Validity:               2012 - 2016
    • Description:       Intel Labs announced the formation of the Intel Strategic Research Alliance (ISRA) for Energy-Efficient Security for SoC devices in Brazil. The focus of this research is to explore the implications of power constraints on the design and implementation of security in SoC devices. Security solutions (e.g. data encryption) significantly increase the processing requirements of the device and have become more computationally demanding.
