Truegaze - Static Analysis Tool For Android/iOS Apps Focusing On Security Issues Outside The Source Code

A static analysis tool for Android and iOS applications focusing on security issues outside the source code such as resource strings, third party libraries and configuration files.

Python 3 is required and you can find all required modules in the requirements.txt file. Only tested on Python 3.7 but should work on other 3.x releases. No plans to 2.x support at this time.

You can install this via PIP as follows:
pip install truegaze
To download and run manually, do the following:
git clone https://github.com/nightwatchcybersecurity/truegaze.git
cd truegaze
pip -r requirements.txt
python -m truegaze.cli

How to use
To list modules:
truegaze list
To scan an application:
truegaze scan test.apk
truegaze scan test.ipa

Sample output
Listing modules:
[email protected]:~/$ truegaze list
Total active plugins: 1

Scanning an application:
[email protected]:~/$ truegaze scan ~/test.ipa
Identified as an iOS application via a manifest located at: Payload/IPAPatch-DummyApp.app/Info.plist
Scanning using the "AdobeMobileSdk" plugin

Display installed version:
[email protected]:~/$ truegaze version
Current version: v0.2

The application is command line and will consist of several modules that check for various vulnerabilities. Each module does its own scanning, and all results get printed to command line.
