Abstract [en]

The goal for this thesis is to explore the possibilities with Bring Your OwnDevice (BYOD) on mobile devices using various Mobile Device Management(MDM) features on three different platforms - Android, iOS and Windows Phone8. The work involves a theoretical study and a practical implementation. Theresearch is to investigate the native (built-in) and implementable support forMDM using a client application, while the practical work is to implement aclient application for Android as a proof of concept based on the researchresult. The current threat landscape is revealed as well as suggestions on howto protect mobile devices for BYOD. The result shows that Android is the mostvulnerable platform and lacks native and implementable support for BYOD andMDM functionality using public frameworks. To provide more comprehensivesupport a client application would require more high-risk permissions, that areonly available using firmware signatures or restrictive manufacturer-specificApplication Programming Interface (API).
