The main objective of this paper is to propose security policies and mechanisms for mobile phones that better meet the expectations of users, either at the level of mobile networks, or mobile applications.At the mobile networks level: The study focuses on limiting the spread of malware via SMS/MMS and emails. It describes the steps involved in identifying, analyzing and securing traffic in mobile networks. For this purpose, a Framework MPSS (Mobile Phone Security Scheme) is used as part of the mobile network of operator Telecom. MPSS aims to increase the level of information security through the network of the telecom operator and solve problems related to limited resources on mobile devices and reduce the risk of loss of data users (individuals, companies). Basically, this study proposes a new model of mobile security applications consisting of several levels and layers. Each layer of this model is responsible for the security of its components, and nothing more. The upper levels of the model are based on all lower levels to ensure that their components are safe in an appropriate manner. This model based on abstraction allows the design of a particular mobile security mechanism to focus on one area of concern without spending resources to analyze all layers that support its current position in the model. © 2005 - 2014 JATIT & LLS.
