A Survey Paper on Location Based Device Management Policy Framework for Smart Phone Users
Abstract: Smart Phone Apps have numerous sources to access the sensitive data and vital resources within the user mobile phone. This vital data can be a threat for the user from the malicious apps which use your sensitive data for numerous purpose like privacy leakage or security threat. For Example A mischievous app recording your private business data or an unwanted app capturing your personal data can lead it to a security threat. So the main cause of this situation starts from that the android phone user has no control over his own device which leads to no control over his own data. Once the mischievous app has been granted with its access privileges, the android user simply loses control over all his sensitive information. However whether the granted access should work at any specific context or region can be handled by the device user by disabling the permissions or simply by revoking them. So in this paper we present you Location based policy management framework for smart phone user which helps you to set your own user policies at a given context/region where the user demands that none of the misleading apps should access his sensitive data. We have performed several test at different regions with different user policies to check if they work accurately.
