During the development or maintenance of an Android app, the app developer needs to determine the app's security and privacy requirements such as permission requirements. Permission requirements include two folds. First, what permissions (i.e., access to sensitive resources, e.g., location or contact list) the app needs to request. Second, how to explain the reason of permission usages to users. In this paper, we focus on the multiple challenges that developers face when creating permission-usage explanations. We propose a novel framework, CLAP, that mines potential explanations from the descriptions of similar apps. CLAP leverages information retrieval and text summarization techniques to find frequent permission usages. We evaluate CLAP on a large dataset containing 1.4 million Android apps. The evaluation results outperform existing state-of-the-art approaches, showing great promise of CLAP as a tool for assisting developers and permission requirements discovery.
