CloudShield: Efficient Anti-Malware Smartphone Patching With a P2P Network on the Cloud
The battery limits of today Smartphones require a solution. In the scientific community it is believed that a promising way of prolonging battery life is to offload mobile computation to the cloud. State of the art offloading architectures consists of virtual copies of real Smartphones (the clones) that run on the cloud, are synchronized with the corresponding devices, and help alleviate the computational burden on the real Smartphones. Recently, it has been proposed to organize the clones in a peer-to-peer network in order to facilitate content sharing among the mobile Smartphones. The authors believe that P2P network of clones, aside from content sharing, can be a useful tool to solve critical security problems on the mobile network of Smartphones.
