In this paper we address the authentication process in the cloud environment for mobile devices, which appears to be a major field of study since it is the main entrance door to the offered services. Hence, we introduce a novel approach which is based on a smart Scan Decision-Maker algorithm that we have developed and is built on top of a context-aware authentication system and relies on a cloud-based malware scanning system (CloudAV). Our algorithm will form, in conjunction with the two adopted systems, a collaborative framework aiming, on the one hand, to provide an additional security layer so as to thwart advanced malware-based attacks that might bypass the authentication system and, on the other hand, to reduce the risk of online frauds and mitigate breaches of confidentiality in crucial business operations and critical services. As a part of proof-of-concept implementation, we have tested our algorithm in different scenarios. © 2016 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
