Dynamic iOS Vetting for Applications (DiVA)

Dynamic iOS Vetting for Applications (DiVA) software platform enables automatic detection and analysis of behavior of iOS programs. With the mission of detecting potentially malicious apps before they are deployed, DiVA instruments the binary files with additional libraries and modified symbol tables. These changes do not modify the logic of the application, and DiVA does not require the source code. DiVA acts as a middle layer that silently monitors and categorizes the behavior of iOS applications. The DiVA platform allows quicker and more thorough vetting of iOS applications.  It addresses the difficulty in assessing the reliability and intent of a given program, and the manual aspect of the analyst’s inspection. DiVA streamlines app vetting, reducing unwanted behavior on devices, while freeing up analysts’ time for other tasks.
