Below you find 1 infographic summarizing what we described above. Each image provides information about both DAR and DIT items.

Bad Items

Everything presented below is related to well-known CWEs, such as Sensitive data leakage [CWE-200], Unsafe sensitive data storage [CWE-312], Unsafe sensitive data transmission [CWE-319]. You can read more about it here.

Now let’s go deeper and examine each data item’s protection level.

Application Description

Let’s cite the description of this application below:

Официальное приложение конференции SECON пригодится каждому участнику конференции, потому что:

  • содержит самое актуальное расписание докладов, при изменениях в программе (а форс-мажоры иногда случаются) уведомит вас о них;
  • напоминает об избранных докладах за 5 минут до начала — не забудете что хотели посетить;
  • позволяет оценить доклад пока в памяти ещё свежи впечатления о нём, а не когда у организаторов руки до email-рассылки;
  • сообщает о баркемпах — кто, где, во сколько и о чём собирается рассказать;
  • покажет на карте место проведения конференции и как туда добраться;
  • поможет ориентироваться на самой конференции — схема расположения залов, буфетов, туалетов и прочих нужных объектов инфраструктуры.

Protection levels.

Locally stored data (Data-at-Rest, DAR).

Locally stored data groups include Events Information, Location ‘n’ Maps Information.
The average DAR value is 3.50 points (7.00 points of system protection and 0.00 points of own protection). It equals to a typical value (3.5 points, where’s 7 points of system protection and 0 points of own protection).

Items with average value 3.50 points (7 points of system protection, 0 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, extra data found that shouldn’t be accessed where system protection level means – root/jailbreak is required but not possible without wiping device data, and own protection level means – stored as is.

– Calendar Events (‘Events Information’ Group) – Some info about calendar events like date and time and calendar body. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any events with details about event,

– Contact Short Profile (‘Events Information’ Group) – Name, Email ID, Phone number of contacts. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any events with details about event,

– Profile’s Image (‘Events Information’ Group) – Image related to contact shared, uploaded, downloaded. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any events with details about event,

– Media URLs (‘Events Information’ Group) – URLs related to media info such as stream media or profile’s media, etc. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any events with details about event,

– GEO Data (‘Location ‘n’ Maps Information’ Group) – Any GEO info stored as plain text referred to the places or tracked activity. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any geodata from trackers, social networks, GPS, etc.,

– Address Data (‘Location ‘n’ Maps Information’ Group) – Home, work or another type of owner address stored by apps. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any geodata from trackers, social networks, GPS, etc.,

– Place Details (‘Location ‘n’ Maps Information’ Group) – Any info about public place (city, country, address, contacts) stored in text or media file format. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any geodata from trackers, social networks, GPS, etc.

Keep in mind if you’re using some Android devices such Samsung, LG or another device with an unlocked or non-locked loader that allow rooting your device without user action, the system level equals 6 points instead of 7. It means your data can be stolen without involving your actions.

Transferred data (Data-in-Transit, DIT).

Transferred data groups include Events Information, Location ‘n’ Maps Information.
The average DIT value is 4.50 points (5.00 points of system protection and 4.00 points of own protection). It equals to a typical value (4 points, where’s 4 points of system protection and 4 points of own protection).

Items with average value 4.50 points (5 points of system protection, 4 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, data available if it’s allowed only and may require user action where system protection level means – some techniques are available to developers to keep connection bypassing system settings, like proxy settings, etc., and own protection level means – bypassed by fake/stolen root certificates.

– Calendar Events (‘Events Information’ Group) – Some info about calendar events like date and time and calendar body. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any events with details about event,

– Contact Short Profile (‘Events Information’ Group) – Name, Email ID, Phone number of contacts. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any events with details about event,

– Profile’s Image (‘Events Information’ Group) – Image related to contact shared, uploaded, downloaded. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any events with details about event,

– GEO Data (‘Location ‘n’ Maps Information’ Group) – Any GEO info stored as plain text referred to the places or tracked activity. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any geodata from trackers, social networks, GPS, etc.,

– Address Data (‘Location ‘n’ Maps Information’ Group) – Home, work or another type of owner address stored by apps. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any geodata from trackers, social networks, GPS, etc.,

Keep in mind if you’re using out-of-date Android < 7.0, the system level equals 4 points instead of 6. It means your data can be stolen with a crafted preinstalled certificate on the device or if someone makes you install a certificate. Also, if you’re using out-of-date Android < 5.0, the system level equals 2 points instead of 4. It means your data can be stolen without involving your actions.
