Project Title: Developing an auditing framework for a mobile honeypot

Where: Security for Telecommunications (SecT), TU Berlin, headed by Prof. Jean-Pierre Seifert

Description: If you enjoy getting your hands dirty hacking Android code-base, this project is for you. The goal of the project is to extend an existing prototype implementation of a mobile honeypot running on a Samsung Galaxy SII Android phone with auditing capabilities to enable logging facilities for Android apps.

Specific tasks include getting device snapshots (via device mapper) to work, patching the Linux kernel for syscall logging, and documenting work done in a report. Possibilities of using the work towards a scientific publication can be discussed if the student is keen. You will be working with a SGSII phone, coding mostly in C/C++. We prefer candidates with prior software engineering experience in the industry. Since the prototype is running on top of a microkernel (Fiasco.OC), prior knowledge of virtualization architectures will be useful.

To apply, please email an updated CV/Resume to the email address below indicating in the body of the email why the project interests you. The internship will cover living costs for a student in Berlin.
