The generic, secure and modular methodology, described in this paper, provides a generic approach for the design and development of secure mobile applications. It is applicable to multiple mobile phone platforms and mobile operating environments. This approach treats a mobile application in a holistic way and structures it into four groups of modules: user interface modules, communication modules, security modules, and business logic modules. These four groups of modules can be designed and implemented independently and finally be integrated together. This approach not only simplifies the process of design and development of mobile applications, but also improves the reusability and robustness of mobile applications. In addition, this paper proposes a trusted layer model for designing the security modules of mobile applications, which provides generic application interfaces and comprehensive data protection. The paper finally gives an example of a secure mobile application, called SAFE Mobile Wallet, which was designed and implemented using GSM methodology.
