Secure mobile engineering – the case study of CalyxOS

CalyxOS is an open source Android-based Operating System, sponsored by the Calyx Institute, a 501(c) non-profit dedicated to making privacy and security available for all.

The team takes the code Google releases as open source to the Android Open Source Project, and tries to make it usable for everyone while preserving their privacy, and also keeping the security model Google intended intact. This creates some interesting scenarios, where being in the control of the Operating System lets you make pretty much any modification you’d like, but lots of implications have to be considered.
