Abstract

The proliferation of mobile devices in the BRIC countries has prompted them to develop policies to manage the security of these devices. In China, mobile devices are a primary tool for payments. As a result, China instituted in 2017 a cyber security policy that applies to mobile devices giving China broad authority to manage cyber threats. The United States has a similar need for a cyber policy. Mobile devices are likely to become a primary payment tool in the United States soon. DHS has also identified a need for more effective security policy in mobile devices for government operations. This work proposes a certification program for mobile devices that can achieve the same level of security as China's policy without the threats to privacy and intellectual property. It will also afford the United States a more authoritative position to shape global cyber norms as cyberspace evolves.
