In this paper, we propose a new method to enhance an android security by exploiting a selective management of application permission. To that purpose, we analyze behavior of the current android security, via which we draw out possible vulnerabilities. After that, we develop a tool to implement the selective management of the application permission, witch has a function to give a permission selectively for the application when we install a new application. Via experiment we show validity of the developed tool in solving the drawn vulnerability in the current android security.
