Recognizing malware before its installation plays a crucial role in keeping an android device safe. In this paper we describe a supervised method that is able to analyse multiple information (e.g. permissions, api calls and network addresses) that can be retrieved through a broad static analysis of android applications. In particular, we propose a novel multi-view machine learning approach to malware detection, which couples knowledge extracted via both clustering and classification. In an assessment, we evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed method using benchmark Android applications and established machine learning metrics.

Abstract

Recognizing malware before its installation plays a crucial role in keeping an android device safe. In this paper we describe a supervised method that is able to analyse multiple information (e.g. permissions, api calls and network addresses) that can be retrieved through a broad static analysis of android applications. In particular, we propose a novel multi-view machine learning approach to malware detection, which couples knowledge extracted via both clustering and classification. In an assessment, we evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed method using benchmark Android applications and established machine learning metrics.
