The objective of SKIMS lies in the design, development and implementation of a cross-layer security system for mobile devices. Detection mechanisms as well as a proactive and reactive defense of attacks are core components of this project.
The vision of a digital immune system will be demonstrated in a proof of concept in terms of an extended security application for mobile phones. Analog to a traffic light system, the mobile signals the current level of risk to the user and relaxes the status wherever applicable. This transparency allows users to regain trust that was lost previously in insecure environments. Further information.
