Yet another paper was accepted at the International Conference of Financial Cryptography and Data Security (FC’16): “CuriousDroid: Automated User Interface Interaction for Android Application Analysis Sandboxes” by Patrick Carter, Collin Mulliner, Martina Lindorfer, William Robertson, and Engin Kirda.
CuriousDroid was developed in collaboration with Northeastern University in Boston and provides intelligent, user-like user interface interactions for the large-scale analysis of Android apps, for example in analysis systems such as Andrubis.
Katharina Krombholz, Aljosha Judmayer, Matthias Gusenbauer and Edgar Weippl got their paper “The Other Side of the Coin: User Experiences with Bitcoin Security and Privacy” accepted at the International Conference of Financial Cryptography and Data Security (FC’16) which will be held in February 2016 in Christ Church, Barbados.
