As anorton already commented, the following question explains this rather well: How to trace a (mobile) phone?
As you are able to to write your own keyboards for android it could be assumed that a keyboard could be written that functions like a normal keyboard while at the same time logging the input and passing it back to the attacker. Such an application shouldn't be to hard to write.
I think the comment of @Luc is as giving a direction that merits to be expanded here into an answer. Consider the following. The hardware to have a 0.5lb mobile device run at 480p resolution etc is quite recent. Consequently it is only recently that those mobile systems you mention in your question exists. Desktop system which have been able to use ...
I guess only insiders from respective companies can provide definite answers, so please take the below answer with a grain of salt. I believe that those restrictions are, in large part, to protect business model and the respective ecosystem. For example, here's some data from Apple's recent 10-K filing: The iTunes Store generated a total of $9.3 ...
There is a framework called snoopy which does this. I haven't really had a look into it but it may be what your looking for. Hope this helps
Based on existing comments, answers, and some more elaboration from you, I'd say your scenario is something that Microsoft tried to create a solution to with Next-Generation Secure Computing Base (NGSCB) which was also formerly known as Palladium. Without encrypting everything (code, memory, data in the processor, data traveling on the bus, data moving ...
Yes you can record keystrokes by user on android device simply by reverse engineering the keyboard app . http://www.android-app-development.ie/blog/2013/03/06/inserting-keylogger-code-in-android-swiftkey-using-apktool/ Here is one example where attacker attaches malware to the famous swiftkey keyboard using apktool
although crude it could be refined but place your qr code over a metalic background (like foil) this way scanners and copiers will create a black image , your hand held device uses natural light and seems to be able to read the code with ease.
Stopping android to send keyboard keystrokes: A scenario for preventing the keyboard on sending would be by using a firewall. For NON-Rooted phones this ones should do the trick: NoRoot Firewall >> www.play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=app.greyshirts.firewall Mobiwol >> www.play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.netspark.firewall In this moment, ...
Most WiFi enabled devices broadcast their Mac address when probing for networks to join in the vicinity. By placing your own WiFi device in promiscuous/listening mode and utilizing a tool like Aircrack-ng, you can see and record all broadcast traffic enabling you to see if a device with a specific MAC address comes within earshot of your listening device. ...
I believe spartan is talking about Wifi "probe requests". You can capture these using wireshark when your wireless adapter is set to "monitor mode". You can filter for them using the following syntax: wlan.fc.type_subtype == 0x04 These are managment frames and are basically frames sent from your client to find out which wireless networks / AP are ...
GSM uses three different security algorithms - A3, A5, and A8. The A3 algorithm is used to authenticate the mobile device, the A5 algorithm to encrypt the data transmitted, and the A8 algorithm is used to generate the session key. Hence, I believe you are interested in the A8 algorithm which deviates the session keys through a challenge and response ...
The closest thing to a 'hello' packet concept in a smart phone, which mostly use TCP/IP, will probably be a DHCP-DISCOVER broadcast and then subsequent ARP requests, presuming it is active on the network. Most smart phones will probably respond to ping, too, so presuming you have control over DHCP on the network, once you know its IP address, send pings to ...
