What is Project App Check about?
The App Check is a tool we’ve been missing for a very long time. Now we are going to build it. We have secured the resources – what we need is your expertise! Wonder who we are? Learn more.
Whether you are looking to do development work (which we are going to commission), want to support the project because you like it, or are simply curious to find out what we are up to – every constructive engagement is welcome.
We have been analyzing apps for Android and iOS for privacy and security issues for several years. See the published results here. We did it by setting up a man-in-the-middle attack and looking at the data the app sends over the internet on a case-by-case basis.
Now, we will automate this process, in order to test thousands of apps and feed the results into a database that is searchable for everybody.
This is what we have in mind. Some steps are easy and should not be a problem. Some are not. Check it out. We will build this for Android-Apps first, hence the Example includes the Playstore. If feasible, we will also include iOS-Apps.
