In this paper, we present PBS (Programmable BYOD Security), a new security solution to enable fine-grained, application-level network security programmability for the purpose of network management and policy enforcement on mobile apps and devices. Our work is motivated by another emerging and powerful concept, SDN (Software-Defined Networking). With a novel abstraction of mobile device elements (e.g., apps and network interfaces on the device) into conventional SDN network elements, PBS intends to provide network-wide, context-aware, app-specific policy enforcement at run-time without introducing much overhead on a resource-constrained mobile device, and without the actual deployment of SDN switches in enterprise networks.
