MITRE/ATARC Mobile White Paper

MITRE/ATARC Mobile Collaboration Symposium, March 5, 2014


The Collaboration Sessions covered four key mobile application security topics:

  • Mobile Application Threats and Attack Patterns
  • Mobile Application Vetting
  • Mobile Application Protection Mechanisms
  • Cyber Intelligence

Several key themes emerged as a result of the four Collaboration Sessions:

  • There are a number of promising efforts ongoing within government mobile application security space that could be more effective if they were integrated
  • A robust, integrated Federal wide cyber intelligence program is critical to ensure agencies and commercial IT providers can adapt to new and emerging threats
  • The academic community is a ripe, largely untapped resource to use to help devote research into some key challenges

This white paper summarizes the results of the Collaboration Sessions and provides detailed actionable recommendations for government and academia.
