Tizen is an open-source platform designed for multiple computing platforms, such as smartphones, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), smart TV, wearable devices, consumer electronics, etc. Tizen comes at a time when the threat against mobile computing is growing in tandem with the popularity of mobile devices. Compared to Android, iOS and Blackberry, Tizen offers several different options within the device structure to combat the rise in malware targeting mobile devices. This paper will examine these options and their ability to counteract malware and privacy threats.
