This paper proposes a framework for regulating data sharing on Android mobile devices. In our approach, the user downloads a copy of the data on his Android device, then the framework controls the data usage by enforcing the usage control policies which have been embedded in the data itself by the data producer. The usage control policy is based on the Usage Control model, whose main feature is to allow the usage of the downloaded data as long as conditions specified in the policy are satisfied. The proposed framework secures the data access procedure relying on both the Android security mechanisms and the introduction of Trusted Platform Module functions. The paper details the proposed framework, presents some preliminary results from the prototype that has been developed, and discusses the security of the prototype.
