TTA-1 - Continuous Validation & Threat Protection for Mobile Applications

This TTA seeks innovative approaches to validating security throughout a mobile application's operational use, as measured against the security criteria established by the Federal Mobile Application Security Vetting Working Group and currently maintained by National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) [6]. Also, this TTA seeks to develop capabilities, specific to the mobile device operating environment, to respond to current known threats and vulnerabilities, including, but not limited to the identification of malware or the identification of vulnerable code. This entails developing the capability to anticipate and, if needed, react to future threats and vulnerabilities while continuously monitoring a mobile device's security posture.

TTA-2 - Integrating Security throughout the Mobile Application Lifecycle

To enable incorporation of security mechanisms into the mobile app development process, this TTA seeks approaches and implementations to fortify mobile app development tools with functionality that, transparently to the developer, incorporates secure mechanisms as mobile apps are developed.
