Abstract

Android based smartphones have become popular. Accordingly, many malwares are developed. The malwares target information leaked from Android. However, it is difficult for users to judge the availability of application by understanding the potential threats in the application. In this paper, we focus on acquisition of information by using a remote procedure call when we invoke the API to acquire phone ID. We design a methodology to record invocation that are concerned the API by inserting Log.v methods. We examined our method, and confirm empirically the record of the call behavior of the API to acquire phone ID.
