What’s new in WebView security

Posted by Xiaowen Xin and Renu Chaudhary, Android Security Team

The processing of external and untrusted content is often one of the most
important functions of an app. A newsreader shows the top news articles and a
shopping app displays the catalog of items for sale. This comes with associated
risks as the processing of untrusted content is also one of the main ways that
an attacker can compromise your app, i.e. by passing you malformed content.

Many apps handle untrusted content using WebView,
and we’ve made many improvements in Android over the years to protect it and
your app against compromise. With Android Lollipop, we started delivering
WebView as an independent APK, updated every six weeks from the Play store, so
that we can get important fixes to users quickly. With the newest WebView,
we’ve added a couple more important security enhancements.

Isolating the renderer process in Android O

Starting with Android O, WebView will have the renderer running in an isolated
process separate from the host app, taking advantage of the isolation between
processes provided by Android that has been available for other applications.

Similar to Chrome, WebView now provides two levels of isolation:

  1. The rendering engine has been split into a separate process. This insulates
    the host app from bugs or crashes in the renderer process and makes it harder
    for a malicious website that can exploit the renderer to then exploit the host
    app.

  2. To further contain it, the renderer process is run within an isolated
    process sandbox that restricts it to a limited set of resources. For example,
    the rendering engine cannot write to disk or talk to the network on its own.

    It is also bound to the same seccomp filter (blogpost on seccomp is coming soon) as
    used by Chrome on Android. The seccomp filter reduces the number of system calls
    the renderer process can access and also restricts the allowed arguments to the
    system calls.

Incorporating Safe Browsing

The newest version of WebView incorporates Google’s Safe Browsing protections to detect
and warn users about potentially dangerous sites.. When correctly configured,
WebView checks URLs against Safe Browsing’s malware and phishing database and
displays a warning message before users visit a dangerous site. On Chrome, this
helpful information is displayed more than 250 million times a month, and now
it’s available in WebView on Android.

Enabling Safe Browsing

To enable Safe Browsing for all WebViews in your app, add in a manifest tag:

<manifest>
     <meta-data android:name="android.webkit.WebView.EnableSafeBrowsing"
                android:value="true" />
      . . .
     <application> . . . </application>
</manifest>

Because WebView is distributed as a separate APK, Safe Browsing for WebView is
available today for devices running Android 5.0 and above. With just one added
line in your manifest, you can update your app and improve security for most of
your users immediately.

Ending support for Android Market on Android 2.1 and lower

Posted by Maximilian Ruppaner, Software Engineer on Google Play

On June 30, 2017, Google will be ending support for the Android Market app on
Android 2.1 Eclair and older devices. When this change happens, users on these
devices will no longer be able to access, or install other apps from, the
Android Market. The change will happen without a notification on the device, due
to technical restrictions in the original Android Market app.

It has been 7 years since Android 2.1 Eclair launched. Most app developers are
no longer supporting these Android versions in their apps given these devices
now account for only a small number of installs.

We will still be supporting later versions of Android Market for as long as
feasible. Google Play, the replacement for
Android Market, is available on Android 2.2 and above.

Sky Force 2014 Reimagined for Android TV

By Jamil Moledina, Games Strategic Partnerships Lead, Google Play

In the coming months, we’ll be seeing more media players, like the recently released Nexus Player, and TVs from partners with Android TV built-in hit the market. While there’s plenty of information available about the technical aspects of adapting your app or game to Android TV, it’s also useful to consider design changes to optimize for the living room. That way you can provide lasting engagement for existing fans as well as new players discovering your game in this new setting. Here are three things one developer did, and how you can do them too.

Infinite Dreams is an indie studio out of Poland, co-founded by hardcore game fans Tomasz Kostrzewski and Marek Wyszyński. With Sky Force 2014 TV, they brought their hit arcade style game to Android TV in a particularly clever way. The mobile-based version of Sky Force 2014 reimaged the 2004 classic by introducing stunning 3D visuals, and a free-to-download business model using in-app purchasing and competitive tournaments to increase engagement. In bringing Sky Force 2014 to TV, they found ways to factor in the play style, play sessions, and real-world social context of the living room, while paying homage to the title’s classic arcade heritage. As Wyszyński puts it, “We decided not to take any shortcuts, we wanted to make the game feel like it was designed to be played on TV.”

Orientation

For starters, Sky Force 2014 is played vertically on a smartphone or tablet, also known as portrait mode. In the game, you’re piloting a powerful fighter plane flying up the screen over a scrolling landscape, targeting waves of steampunk enemies coming down at you. You can see far enough up the screen, enabling you to plan your attacks and dodge enemies in advance.

Vertical play on the mobile version

When bringing the game to TV, the quickest approach would have been to preserve that vertical orientation of the gameplay, by pillarboxing the field of play.

With Sky Force 2014, Infinite Dreams considered their options, and decided to scale the gameplay horizontally, in landscape mode, and recompose the view and combat elements. You’re still aiming up the screen, but the world below and the enemies coming at you are filling out a much wider field of view. They also completely reworked the UI to be comfortably operated with a gamepad or simple remote. From Wyszyński’s point of view, “We really didn’t want to just add support for remote and gamepad on top of what we had because we felt it would not work very well.” This approach gives the play experience a much more immersive field of view, putting you right there in the middle of the action. More information on designing for landscape orientation can be found here.

Multiplayer

Like all mobile game developers building for the TV, Infinite Dreams had to figure out how to adapt touch input onto a controller. Sky Force 2014 TV accepts both remote control and gamepad controller input. Both are well-tuned, and fighter handling is natural and responsive, but Infinite Dreams didn’t stop there. They took the opportunity to add cooperative multiplayer functionality to take advantage of the wider field of view from a TV. In this way, they not only scaled the visuals of the game to the living room, but also factored in that it’s a living room where people play together. Given the extended lateral patterns of advancing enemies, multiplayer strategies emerge, like “divide and conquer,” or “I got your back” for players of different skill levels. More information about adding controller support to your Android game can be found here, handling controller actions here, and mapping each player’s paired controllers here.

Players battle side by side in the Android TV version

Business Model

Infinite Dreams is also experimenting with monetization and extending play session length. The TV version replaces several $ 1.99 in-app purchases and timers with a try-before-you-buy model which charges $ 4.99 after playing the first 2 levels for free. We’ve seen this single purchase model prove successful with other arcade action games like Mediocre’s Smash Hit for smartphones and tablets, in which the purchase unlocks checkpoint saves. We’re also seeing strong arcade action games like Vector Unit’s Beach Buggy Racing and Ubisoft’s Hungry Shark Evolution retain their existing in-app purchase models for Android TV. More information on setting up your games for these varied business models can be found here. We’ll be tracking and sharing these variations in business models on Android TV, including variations in premium, as the Android TV platform grows.

Reflecting on the work involved in making these changes, Wyszyński says, “From a technical point of view the process was not really so difficult – it took us about a month of work to incorporate all of the features and we are very happy with the results.” Take a moment to check out Sky Force 2014 TV on a Nexus Player and the other games in the Android TV collection on Google Play, most of which made no design changes and still play well on a TV. Consider your own starting point, take a look at the Android TV section on our developer blog, and build the version of your game that would be most satisfying to players on the couch.
