Secure Your App for iOS by pjebs

Download Source

Add an extra layer of security against prying eyes. IT IS NOT A FAIL-SAFE MEASURE

Security Sensitive strings can be:

  • REST API Credentials
  • OAuth Credentials
  • Passwords
  • URLs not intended to be known to the public (i.e. private backend API endpoints)
  • Keys & Secrets

This library hard-codes typical NSStrings as C language strings encoded in hexadecimal. When your app needs the original unobfuscated NSStrings, it dynamically decodes it back.

This makes it harder for people with jail-broken iPhones from opening up your app's executable file and looking for strings embedded in the binary that may appear 'interesting'.
