What does the future look like for smartphone security?

By 2020 an estimated 6.1 billion people, or 70pc of the world’s population, will own a smartphone. But how can we make sure the data held on them is safe and secure? Last year, a Harvard Business Review investigation revealed 45pc of senior business executives considered smartphones to be one of the weakest links in corporate security, with cyber criminals exploiting vulnerabilities to hold stolen data to ransom, or worse. Xose Diaz, head of enterprise at Samsung Mobile Europe, agrees, and says: “A digital revolution has radically reshaped global business over the last two decades, and we have seen the massive adoption of the smartphone. It has impacted the business process of all of our customers; there is still a long way to go until we fully realise all the power of mobile technology.
“But security today is preventing enterprises from collaborating in an open manner, as well as innovating in an open way. The complexity behind security has to be handled with really advanced platforms; it’s so important to build solutions that will enable this [move] to a more collaborative enterprise culture.” This is why Samsung has innovated with multi-layered defence-grade security on their smartphones and tablets. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones are its most secure yet, complete with an iris scanner, fingerprint scanner and face recognition technology that can be used to unlock them and prevent important information from being leaked.



Hasan Sheikh Faridul is co-founder of Eyn, a company that is prototyping three-step biometric verification. He has high hopes for this kind of technology and believes it will very soon be the go-to smartphone security solution. “I can see the huge potential of biometrics and a visual identity verification system based on machine learning,” he says. “It is great because it is a unique identifier – plus no one needs to remember a password. “By using a combination of markers – say iris and fingerprint detection – it is possible to identify more than one billion people in India, for example.”
And with cyber crime rapidly evolving, it’s important for security developers to keep moving. “The technology to uniquely identify someone using just biometrics is solved,” says Mr Faridul. “One of the exciting areas that developers are now looking at is how you detect that the biometric is live – whether the iris, face or fingerprint that the system needs to legitimise is live in front of the camera.”

Catching the hackers in the act

Cyber-criminals start attacking servers newly set up online about an hour after they are switched on, suggests research.The servers were part of an experiment the BBC asked a security company to carry out to judge the scale and calibre of cyber-attacks that firms face every day.About 71 minutes after the servers were set up online they were visited by automated attack tools that scanned them for weaknesses they could exploit, found security firm Cyber Reason.Once the machines had been found by the bots, they were subjected to a "constant" assault by the attack tools.

The servers were accessible online for about 170 hours to form a cyber-attack sampling tool known as a honeypot, said Israel Barak, head of security at Cyber Reason. The servers were given real, public IP addresses and other identifying information that announced their presence online.
"We set out to map the automatic attack activity," said Mr Barak.
To make them even more realistic, he said, each one was also configured to superficially resemble a legitimate server. Each one could accept requests for webpages, file transfers and secure networking."They had no more depth than that," he said, meaning the servers were not capable of doing anything more than providing a very basic response to a query about these basic net services and protocols."There was no assumption that anyone was going to go in and probe it and even if they did, there's nothing there for them to find," he said.

The servers' limited responses did not deter the automated attack tools, or bots, that many cyber-thieves use to find potential targets, he said. A wide variety of attack bots probed the servers seeking weaknesses that could be exploited had they been full-blown, production machines.
Many of the code vulnerabilities and other loopholes they looked for had been known about for months or years, he said. However, added Mr Barak, many organisations struggled to keep servers up-to-date with the patches that would thwart these bots potentially giving attackers a way to get at the server.
During the experiment:
17% of the attack bots were scrapers that sought to suck up all the web content they found
37% looked for vulnerabilities in web apps or tried well-known admin passwords
10% checked for bugs in web applications the servers might have been running
29% tried to get at user accounts using brute force techniques that tried commonly used passwords
7% sought loopholes in the operating system software the servers were supposedly running
"This was a very typical pattern for these automatic bots," said Mr Barak. "They used similar techniques to those we've seen before. There's nothing particularly new."
As well as running a bank of servers for the BBC, Cyber Reason also sought to find out how quickly phishing gangs start to target new employees. It seeded 100 legitimate marketing email lists with spoof addresses and then waited to see what would turn up.
