Added on: March 7th, 2018 by Afsal Meerankutty No Comments

Apple iOS has been a very advanced and sophisticated mobile operating system ever since it was first released in 2007. In this seminar paper, we will first focus on introducing iOS security by talking about the implementation details of its essential building blocks, such as system security, data security, hardware security and app security. Then we will talk about some potential and existing security issues of iOS.

iOS has been one of the most popular mobile operating system in the world ever since it was first released in 2007. As of June 2014, Apple App Store contained more than 1.2 million iOS applications, which have collectively been downloaded more than 60 billion times.  iOS was designed and created by Apple Inc, it is distributed exclusively for Apple hardware. iOS protects not only the data stored in the iOS device, but also the data transmitted on networks when using internet services. iOS provides advanced and sophisticated security for iOS devices and it’s also very easy to use. Users do not need to spend a lot of time on security configurations, as most of the security features have been automatically configured by iOS. iOS also supports biometric authentication (Touch ID), which has recently been incorporated into iOS devices, users can easily use their fingerprints to perform private and sensitive tasks such as unlocking the iPhone and making payments. This survey talks about the details about how the security elements are implemented in iOS and some issues with the iOS security.
