U.S. Government Approved Protection Profile – Protection Profile for Application Software

The U.S. Department of Defense requires all managed mobile applications to meet the NIAP Protection Profile for Application Security Software requirements. The scope of this Protection Profile (PP) is to describe the security functionality of application software in terms of Common Criteria and to define functional and assurance requirements for such software. In recent years, software attacks have shifted from targeting operating systems to targeting applications. This has been the natural response to improvements in operating system security and development processes. As a result, it is paramount that the security of applications be improved to reduce the risk of compromise.

NIST Mobile Threat Catalogue

This document outlines a catalogue of threats to mobile devices and associated mobile infrastructure to support development and implementation of mobile security capabilities, best practices, and security solutions to better protect enterprise information technology (IT). Threats are divided into broad categories, primarily focused upon mobile applications and software, the network stack and associated infrastructure, mobile device and software supply chain, and the greater mobile ecosystem. Each threat identified is catalogued alongside explanatory and vulnerability information where possible, and alongside applicable mitigation strategies. Background information on mobile systems and their attack surface is provided to assist readers in understanding threats contained within the Mobile Threat Catalogue (MTC).

By design, as time has gone on, there are fewer and fewer insights into what your device is doing. This approach was popular about 30 years ago. It was dumb then, and it’s willfully ignorant in this day and age.
