Current computing paradigm like Mobile, Fog, and Cloud Computing are becoming far more interconnected, thereby moving from single, isolated, paradigms to complex ecosystems built on a fruitful integration among several computing paradigms. From a security standpoint, this leads to a novel and unprecedented attack surface. To deal with such threats, applying state-of-the-art security analysis techniques on each paradigm can be insufficient. We claim that novel analysis methodologies able to systematically analyze the ecosystem as a whole must be put forward. To this aim, in this paper, we introduce the idea of AppIoTTE, a novel approach to the security testing of Mobile-IoT hybrid ecosystems, as well as some notes on its implementation working on Android (Mobile) and Android Things (IoT) applications.
