This concept is an old work in progress.

The platform should have a heuristic for detecting whether an app-bundle has been compromised or is malicious. This design document, which has not yet been written, will collect the various possible inputs to this heuristic, and the various actions that might be taken as a result of the heuristic deciding that an app-bundle's behaviour is potentially or probably malicious.

  • Egress filtering is a potential input: if an application attempts to carry out Internet connections that are not allowed, this is suspicious behaviour.
  • Egress filtering is a potential action: if an application is detected to be malicious, its Internet connectivity could be limited or cut off.
