My name is Daniel Baeumges and I did a Master's Thesis on "Intrusion Detection of Android Applications by Using Taint Analysis in an Emulated Environment" at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. With this site I try to share prototypes I developed as part of this thesis.
Please notice that the TaintDroid Runner project presented here is independent of the original TaintDroid project provided on appanalysis.org! TaintDroid Runner "just" uses TaintDroid as a basis.
Anyway, before doing anything with TaintDroid 2.3 please study appanalysis.org. It is also highly recommended to read the initial publications of William Enck, Peter Gilbert, Byung-gon Chun, Landon P. Cox, Jaeyeon Jung, Patrick McDaniel, and Anmol N. Sheth on TaintDroid (http://appanalysis.org/pubs.html).
Questions and feedback regarding the TaintDroid Runner project can be sent to me directly (<first-initial><lastname> -at- gmail.com"), or to the TaintDroid users Google Groups, which I try to monitor regular.
Disclaimer: Use the TaintDroid Runner research prototypes at your own risk!
