Google Android provides market based application distribution to provide ease use of application services. While openness of Android allows various ways of application distribution, including installation of unsigned application. such openness also invokes critical threats such as the spread of malwares and the illegal distribution of applications. In order to prevent such threats, several distributors use on-line authentication techniques by using mobile subscriber`s information. However such methods also have limits that even legal users cannot use their purchased application in situations. Therefore, in this paper, we discuss such problems and provide some ideas of authentication method that allow users to use their purchased application when users change their status.
