Abstract

Although many approaches have been proposed to protect mobile privacy through techniques such as isolated execution, existing mechanisms typically work at the app-level. As many apps themselves might contain vulnerability, it is desirable to split the execution of an app into normal components and sensitive components, such that the execution of sensitive components of an app can be isolated and their private data are protected from accesses by the normal components.
