Security Threat Avoidance Through Selective Permissions in Android

Topic: Security

The current android application framework works on an \"All or none\" permission policy that means application will be installed only if all required permission are granted. And the authors cannot deny any permission after installation if they do it will lead to miss use of granted permission. There are some mechanisms addressing this issue for example Cyanogenmod which denies unwanted permission of installed app but it will leads to application crash. Others are apex and Whispercore trying to address this issue but this model are not publically available.
