Security technologies for provisioning services in the intelligent mobile ecosystem were investigated and developed. Information was collected and analyzed on the nature of cyberattacks targeting smart mobile devices, so that appropriate countermeasures could be taken to combat them. These vulnerabilities were due to the heterogeneity of wireless interfaces, supported platforms, and services offered, so honeypots were used adapted to the main types of smartphones and devices. An infrastructure was developed that collected, detected, and provided early alerts of attacks on mobile devices, allowing an understanding of the modus operandi of cybercriminals targeting mobile devices. By correlating the information obtained from known attack patterns extracted from wired networks, possible changes in the way attackers launched attacks against smart mobile devices were identified.
