Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

WISA is one of the main security research venues hosted by the Korea Institute of Information Security and Cryptology (KIISC) and sponsored by the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning (MSIP), and co-sponsored by the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), the Korea Internet and Security Agency (KISA), and the National Security Research Institute (NSRI). The primary focus of WISA 2020 will be on systems and network security, including all other technical and practical aspects of security applications. This Special Issue will include extended versions of selected papers from WISA 2020, along with general papers closely related to the conference themes. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Analysis of network and security protocols;       
  •  Anonymity and censorship-resistant technologies;
  •  Applications of cryptographic techniques;                         
  •  Authentication and authorization;
  •  Automated tools for source code/binary analysis;
  •  Automobile security;
  •  Botnet defense;
  •  Blockchain security;
  •  Critical infrastructure security;                                          
  •  Denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures;
  •  Digital forensics;
  •  Embedded systems security;
  •  Exploit techniques and automation;
  •  Hardware and physical security;
  •  HCI security and privacy;
  •  Intrusion detection and prevention;
  •  Malware analysis;
  •  Mobile/wireless/cellular system security;
  •  Network-based attacks;         
  •  Network infrastructure security;
  •  Operating system security;
  •  Practical cryptanalysis (hardware, DRM, etc.);
  •  Security policy;      
  •  Side channel attacks and countermeasures;
  •  Storage and file systems security;        
  •  Techniques for developing secure systems;
  •  Trustworthy computing;       
  •  Trusted execution environments;         
  •  Unmanned system security for vehicle/drone/ship systems;

Currently, social networks present information of great relevance to various government agencies and different types of companies, which need knowledge insights for their business strategies. From this point of view, an important technique for data analysis is to create and maintain an environment for collecting data and transforming them into intelligence information to enable analysts to observe the evolution of a given topic, elaborate the analysis hypothesis, identify botnets, and generate data to aid in the decision-making process. Focusing on collecting, analyzing, and supporting decision-making, this paper proposes an architecture designed to monitor and perform anonymous real-time searches in tweets to generate information allowing sentiment analysis on a given subject. Therefore, a technological structure and its implementation are defined, followed by processes for data collection and analysis. The results obtained indicate that the proposed solution provides a high capacity to collect, process, search, analyze, and view a large number of tweets in several languages, in real-time, with sentiment analysis capabilities, at a low cost of implementation and operation.

An Android Inline Hooking Framework for the Securing Transmitted Data

Information leaks can occur through many Android applications, including unauthorized access to sensors data. Hooking is an important technique for protecting Android applications and add security features to them even without its source code. Various hooking frameworks are developed to intercept events and process their own specific events. The hooking tools for Java methods are varied, however, the native hook has few methods. Besides, the commonly used Android hook frameworks cannot meet the requirement of hooking the native methods in shared libraries on non-root devices. Even though some approaches are able to hook these methods, they have limitations or are complicated to implement. In the paper, a feasible hooking approach for Android native methods is proposed and implemented, which does not need any modifications to both the Android framework and app’s code. In this approach, the method’s reference address is modified and control flow is redirected. Beyond that, this study combines this approach with VirtualXposed which aims to run it without root privileges. This hooking framework can be used to enforce security policies and monitor sensitive methods in shared objects. The evaluation of the scheme demonstrates its capability to perform hook operation without a significant runtime performance overhead on real devices and it is compatible and functional for the native hook.
