Mobile phones are personal devices, and as such there is an increasing need for personalised, context-aware applications. This paper describes DCEF (Dynamic Code Execution Framework), a framework which allows applications to securely execute dynamically loaded code, providing new functionality such as client-side personalisation. DCEF ensures the user's personal information remains safe while executing code from potentially untrusted sources. Our contributions are: the abstract design of DCEF; an evaluation of the security of our design; the implementation of DCEF; a demonstration that runtime performance is acceptable and validation of DCEF by using it to create an application which provides personalised information delivery about cultural heritage and museum sites.
