Mobile Botnets Development: Issues and Solutions

Paolo Farina, Enrico Cambiaso, Gianluca Papaleo, and Maurizio Aiello
Abstract—Due to their limited capabilities, mobile devices have rarely been adopted as attack vectors. In this paper, we consider the execution of coordinated and distributed attacks perpetrated by mobile devices (mobile botnet). We first describe current botnets architectures, analyzing their strengths and weaknesses. Then, we identify problems deriving from the development of a mobile botnet. Appropriate solutions to such problems have been proposed, thus providing an important resource during design and development stages of a mobile botnet.⎯

Index Terms—Distributed attacks, network attacks, network security, system architecture, smartphones, denial of service.
