My Role and Contributions
In the EU FP7 project MUSES, I was responsible for leading one of the four technical work packages. Our team conceptualized and developed a context-aware adaptive system for Android, iOS, and Windows to observe and detect employee behavior, violating company usage policies. For example, the clients could detect when an employee shares a classified file with an unknown person via an unprotected internet connection. Whenever the clients identify policy breaches, it further acts on it by disabling that functionality and displaying a warning to the employee. The warning helps employees becoming aware of the policy breach.
The following figure shows the Android Client architecture that I helped designing. My responsibility was to conceptualize and develop the MusDM and MusACS component, which monitors system events and user interaction data to detect policy breaches and react. Our component further provides its functionality to third-party apps that need to be aware of policy conformance.
Our components are open source: github.com/MusesProject.
