Abstract
This study covers in details the Public Safety Grade Mobile Application Management Framework, which is a system that includes a group of trusted components with integral security functions into a single framework, as well as extra security considerations, technologies, standards, and policies. PSG-MAMF is intended to provide semi-closed ecosystem components that can integrate effectively to provide the security functionalities required to address the threats and vulnerabilities of mobile devices, applications, and information in public safety environments. PSG-MAMF improves the security of mobile devices and applications use by the government and public safety, and provides safer ways to access information infrastructure while adhering to organizational policies. The study identifies approaches to monitor, detect, and sense potential attacks taking place from within or outside mobile applications. The study also provides comprehensive ways to identify and mitigate security risks by applying separation of data, applications, algorithms, and keys. Compared to other advanced security solutions available for mobility management, PSG-MAMF provides a level of integration that is not available in other ecosystems provided by other research studies (e.g. NIST ecosystem) and other existing products supported by different vendors (e.g. Blackberry, AirWatch, etc).
