I am seeking a way to monitor communication between Android applications in order to detect their suspicious behaviour but I am not sure where to start the development process from.

As far I have found such tool like http://www.comdroid.org/ but its functionality in not what I am looking for. I would like to have app on my mobile that could inform e.g. that app A communicates with apps: B, C and D. I am guessing that kernel programming might be involved.

I would appreciate any hints, directions, literature etc.

Keep in mind that Tor-based browsers like Orweb are likely to get round any detection you use. –  Polynomial Oct 31 '12 at 8:37

TaintDroid is a modification of android to provide realtime privacy monitoring.

ProxyDroid forces all communication though a proxy such that it can be intercepted.
