Summary Around one billion people access the Internet using their mobile phones today, and many of the mobile phones are prone to be compromised by hackers due to their inherited vulnerability. It is critical to identify these compromised mobile phones to effectively eliminate cyber attacks. However, we see few research works in the field. In order to address this desperate situation, we design a practical traceback framework to identify active compromised mobiles in the mobile Internet environment in this letter. In the proposed framework, we creatively use the IMEI number of mobile hardware as unique marks for the traceback purpose. Two-layer traceback tables are designed to collect global attack information and identify local attacking bots, respectively. Our analysis and simulation demonstrate that the proposed traceback method is effective and feasible, and it can identify every possible attacking mobile in the current mobile Internet environment with single packet marking.
