Abstract : Attempting different approaches to explore the best practice of optimizing mobile security and productivity is necessary to improve the Taiwan navy's maneuverability and capability in the information age. This thesis uses a system engineering approach to research various mobile security technologies and applications that can provide the Taiwan navy with appropriate smartphone systems to develop a secure and productive smartphone incorporation plan. Having addressed system requirements, considered stakeholders concerns, and analyzed commercial off-the-shelf products, preliminary results have shown that Apple iOS is the most secure and productive system for smartphone incorporation in the Taiwan navy. Before rolling out a comprehensive incorporation plan, it is essential to evaluate the recommended technologies through a pilot program that simulates realistic naval activities to further correct deficiencies and determine the feasibility of the selected technologies. The intent of this research is to convince the Taiwan navy that secure smartphone incorporation is achievable through leveraging appropriate smartphone technologies and corresponding strategy, policy, and training.
