As a part of Project Treble, the Android framework supports updates more comfortable and less costly for device companies. In Android Oreo, they removed most of the direct hardware from the media frameworks. Furthermore, they have enabled the Control Flow Integrity across every media component. There are also other security layers like Seccomp filtering and Privileged Access Never emulation. Additionally, Android 8.0 comes with Kernel Address Space Layout Randomization.
