Mobile Security & Privacy Simulator

The Mobile Security & Privacy (MoSP) Simulator is a simulator for the research in the field of security and privacy of modern mobile devices. It is designed for the evaluation of mobile security and privacy issues as well as corresponding solutions. The development of the simulator originated at the Distributed Computing & Security Group at the Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany.

Some features:
