Kharon project

Our Goal is to discover, understand, characterize and detect Android malware

The Kharon project studies Android malware using Information Flow monitoring techniques. This project is funded by CominLabs a "Laboratoire d'Excellence" supported by the French government.

This website contains all the technical results obtained during the project and the source code that supports these results. More precisely, you will find:

  • a short presentation of behavioral signatures of malware computed in this project
  • the Kharon16 malware dataset : a collection of totally reversed malware presented at (LASER) workshop co-located with the 37th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (SP)
  • the GroddDroid tool, presented at MALCON 2015 (best paper award): it is a framework for automatically stimulating and triggering malware.
  • the GPFinder tool, that will be presented at MALCON 2017 : it is a framework for automatically discovering execution path towards suspicious code.
