Abstract

Over the years, various malware detection approaches have been proposed in a bid to address evolving malware threats landscape in android operating system. Systematic literature reviews to analyze these detection approaches have been carried out, but none have been tailored to identifying challenges with android malware detection based on the use of Android program interface (API) features, hence there is no aggregated information on what work has been done by researchers in this area. This research, therefore, presents a systematic literature review on API feature based android malware detection literatures between 2018 to 2022 collected systematically using PRISMA frameworks. This study seeks to identify the challenges faced in android malware detection over the years, methodologies used to address them and limitations of API based feature detection. These useful insights documented in this research will serve as valuable resources which researchers can leverage on to improve the detection of android malware.
