Google Play is a great place for developers to publish their apps. It offers a wide audience, easy distribution, and quick earnings. However, one downside of Google Play is that app developers must use certificates in order to protect their apps from piracy. This process can be time-consuming and frustrating, especially when you’re trying to bypass certificate pinning on an Android app. In this blog post, we will show you a way to bypass certificate pinning with Frida on an Android app.
What is Certificate Pinning?
Certificate pinning is a security feature that restricts which web sites a user can visit on their device. It’s a way to ensure that the webpages you’re visiting are legitimate and not malicious.
To bypass certificate pinning, you need to use Frida. Frida is an Android app that allows you to inspect and control mobile devices remotely. You can use Frida to detect and bypass certificate pinning on websites.
How To Bypass Certificate Pinning With Frida On An Android App
There are several ways to bypass certificate pinning with Frida on an Android app. The simplest way is to use the SSLSetCertificateContext() function. This function will allow you to set a new SSL context and then request a certificate from the server.
To use this method, you first need to create your ownFrida instance. This can be done by calling SSLSetCertificateContext() with the following arguments:
– context: This is the context that we want to set our SSL context to.
– provider: This is the name of the Certificate Authority that we want to use.
– path: This is the path where we want to store our certificates.
– cert: This is a reference to a certificate file that we’ll be using later on.
Once we have created our Frida instance, we can call SSLSetCertificateContext() like so:
sslSetCertificateContext(myFrida, “https://www.example.com”, “/path/to/mycerts/”);
Once we’ve called this function, our app will now be able to use any certificates that are stored in our path/to/mycerts folder.
How to Bypass Certificate Pinning on Android
If you are using a mobile app and want to bypass certificate pinning, Frida is a great tool. First, we need to create an SSL/TLS certificate. We can do this using the following command: openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -days 365 -out cert.pem When prompted for a filename, type cert.pem. Next, we need to build a client truststore for our app. To do this, we first need to generate a key pair for our app user: openssl genrsa -out keypair.pem 2048 Then we need to use the keypair command to create a truststore file: openssl trust -file keypair.pem Now that we have our truststore file, we can use it when building our client side scripts: frida –key-file keypair.pem –certificate cert.pem –trust-file truststore While Frida is running, open the Android Studio Project Settings and add an SSL Module (click on the triangle next to the Project Name). Select the Certificates tab and copy/paste one of the certificates from your cert folder into the Certificate Host field of the SSL Module properties dialog box (see image below). Click on OK and then close Android Studio. In order to run Frida on our project, simply open terminal emulator or Command Prompt in project root directory and type frida –port 8081 Once you have started Frida, open
