Abstract

Widely used around the world, smartphones contain many features and can store content such as contacts, photos, and videos. Information that can be leaked in proportion to the information that the smartphone can store has also been increased. In recent years, accidents such as personal information leakage have occurred frequently. Personal information leakage is happening in the Android environment, which accounts for more than half of the smartphone operating system market share. Analyzing malicious apps that leak information can tell you how to prevent information leakage. Malicious apps that leak information will send importantinformation to the hacker's (C & C) server, which will use network communication. Malicious apps that are emerging nowadays encrypt and transmit important information through SSL communication. In this case, it is difficult to knowwhat kind of information is exposed to network. Therefore, we suggest a method to analyze malicious apps when leak important information through SSL communication. In this paper, we identify the way malicious apps leak information. And we propose a method for analyzing information leaked by SSL communication. Data before encryption was confirmed in the device through SSL hooking and SSL Strip method.
