android-av: A proof-of-concept framework for an Android anti-virus/security engine


Recently I open-sourced an Android application that lets you control the Rdio player from a watch. Now I have another slight broader but more abstract open-source project for the Android community: an prototype security framework modestly named “android-av”.

The framework mostly demonstrates how Android “anti-virus” applications work and how one could implement an framework for abstractly building a full-fledged Android security application. Notice I put “anti-virus” in quotes, because on Android, there are no real “viruses” in the traditional sense. Most Android security threats fit the “malware” description instead. Nonetheless, I welcome any thoughts or feedback on the project.
