Warfighters increasingly rely on mobile devices for voice communication, access to information, and execution of apps that aid them in their tasks. However, untrustworthy applications and risky online behaviors can compromise the mobile device. To be secure and useful, a device must be both multi-level secure and able to access secure services. Current mobile device management solutions cannot meet the needs of the Army and DoD for mobile Multi-Level Security systems. ATC-NY will develop DroidChamber, a software-based Android system that enables multi-level security conforming to NSA standards. DroidChamber runs on Android smartphones and tablets, including Nett Warrior end-user devices (EUDs). With DroidChamber, warfighters can execute apps in multiple security domains without risking information leakage. DroidChamber will support a wide variety of security controls, including division of a container into compartments with independent storage, configuring flexible inter-application communication policies, and high-level application security controls that conform to domain policies.
