    Update: The latest version of iXGuard is iXGuard 4.0. Read more about it here.

We are pleased to announce the latest release of iXGuard. iXGuard 3.2 introduces the following new features:

Protection for JavaScript hybrid apps. iXGuard now protects Javascript code in hybrid applications:

  • Automatic detection, processing and obfuscation of JavaScript hybrid applications.
  • Powerful JavaScript code obfuscation features to complement the existing Objective-C and Swift techniques.
  • Extensive (but optional) configuration scheme similar to the existing options.
  • Out-of-the-box support for popular frameworks like React Native and Cordova and their respective native-JavaScript bridging techniques.

In-App Assistant. iXGuard’s new In-App Assistant automatically generates required name obfuscation configuration for all executed code paths.

Additional iXGuard 3.2 features and updates include:

Improved code integrity checks. iXGuard’s additional code integrity features now provide:

  • Detection of additional runtime function hooking techniques, e.g.:
    - Runtime integrity verification of various function indirection tables.
    - Protection against function hooking tools based on interposing (e.g. Fishhook).
  • Optional callbacks to react specifically to unwanted third-party function interposing.
  • Automated discovery of app code vulnerable to interposing.
  • Verification injection policies specifically tailored to the detected usage.

Improved usability. Improved name obfuscation debugging capabilities through both additional in-app UI elements and console application logs.

Improved callbacks. In addition to allowing for the specification of different callbacks for various integrity features, iXGuard now provides callbacks that:

  • optionally take a context object containing additional information on the detected integrity breach, for example:
    - details on the type of application integrity issues detected,
    - information about which functions were hooked.
  • give the possibility to reuse a single callback for multiple integrity features.

Platform Support. iXGuard now provides support for:

  • Xcode 11 beta 
  • Swift 5.1.
