The Mobile Threat Catalogue outlines a catalogue of threats to mobile devices and associated mobile infrastructure to support development and implementation of mobile security capabilities, best practices, and security solutions to better protect enterprise information technology (IT). Threats are divided into broad categories, primarily focused upon mobile applications and software, the network stack and associated infrastructure, mobile device and software supply chain, and the greater mobile ecosystem. Each threat identified is catalogued alongside explanatory and vulnerability information where possible, and alongside applicable mitigation strategies.
Draft NISTIR 8144 provides background information on mobile information systems and their attack surface is provided to assist readers in understanding threats contained within the Mobile Threat Catalogue (see link below). The NISTIR also outlines the structure of the Mobile Threat Catalogue.
Mobile security engineers and architects can leverage these documents to inform risk assessments, build threat models, enumerate the attack surface of their mobile infrastructure, and identify mitigations for their mobile deployments.
