Android 5.0 Lollipop - New Android Runtime (ART)

by Jemin Lee on 2014-11-26 08:35:08

Date : 2014. 11. 16 (Wed) 10:00 A.M. Locate : EB5. 533 Presenter : Jemin Lee   Android 5.0 Lollipop - new android runtime (ART)   Abstract Android Runtime (ART) is an application runtime environment used by the Android mobile operating system. ART replaces Dalvik, which is the process virtual machine originally used by Android, and performs transformation of the application's bytecode into native instructions that are later executed by the device's runtime environment. Unlike Dalvik, which since Android 2.2 "Froyo" uses just-in-time (JIT) compilation to compile the bytecode every time an application is launched, ART introduces use of ahead-of-time (AOT) compilation by performing it upon the installation of an application. By reducing the overall amount of compilation that needs to be performed across the operation of an application, a mobile device's processor usage is reduced and battery runtime is improved. At the same time, ART brings ... Continue reading →

Rio: a system solution for sharing i/o between mobile systems

by Jorge Frisancho on 2014-11-10 21:10:31

Mobile systems are equipped with a diverse collection of I/O devices, including cameras, microphones, sensors, and modems. There exist many novel use cases for allowing an application on one mobile system to utilize I/O devices from another. This paper presents Rio, an I/O sharing solution that supports unmodified applications and exposes all the functionality of an I/O device for sharing. Rio's design is common to many classes of I/O devices, thus significantly reducing the engineering effort to support new I/O devices. Our implementation of Rio on Android consists of about 7100 total lines of code and supports four I/O classes with fewer than 500 class-specific lines of code. Rio also supports I/O sharing between mobile systems of different form factors, including smartphones and tablets. We show that Rio achieves performance close to that of local I/O for audio devices, sensors, and modem, but suffers noticeable performance degradation for camera due to network throughput ...

Real-time deep virtual machine introspection and its applications

by SiHyeong Park on 2014-10-09 16:44:26

Real-time deep virtual machine introspection and its applications Virtual Machine Introspection (VMI) provides the ability to monitor virtual machines (VM) in an agentless fashion by gathering VM execution states from the hypervisor and analyzing those states to extract information about a running operating system (OS) without installing an agent inside the VM. VMI's main challenge lies in the difficulty in converting low-level byte string values into high-level semantic states of the monitored VM's OS. In this work, we tackle this challenge by developing a real-time kernel data structure monitoring (RTKDSM) system that leverages the rich OS analysis capabilities of Volatility, an open source computer forensics framework, to significantly simplify and automate analysis of VM execution states. The RTKDSM system is designed as an extensible software framework that is meant to be extended to perform application-specific VM state analysis. In addition, the RTKDSM system is able to ...
