Mac App Store receipt validation and code generator.

Overview

Tighten Pro is a code generator and verifier for Mac App Store receipt validation, code-signing and security.

Getting your OS X app ready for the App Store is simple--until you start thinking about verifying the store receipt, checking the certificate chain used to sign your application, and checking the integrity of the application bundle. Implementing all of the WWDR recommendations for the App Store could take up to a month (that's the voice of experience speaking), even for experienced developers!

Tighten Pro changes all that. With a built-in code generator that reads directly from your codesign-ed app bundle, you can add a complete, robust App Store implementation to your own application in under 30 minutes. And since the code generator creates customized security code, your app will be more secure than if you simply reused sample code from the internet.

Features
  • Inspect application code signature.
  • Calculates SHA1 fingerprints of application signing certificate chain.
  • Generates code for codesign requirement checks.
  • Inspect App Store Receipts and verify values against your own receipt-checking code.
  • Creates 32/64-bit inline ANSI C (GCC) code for inclusion in .h .c, .m, .cpp and .mm files.
  • Quickly review public symbols and strings without opening console.

$300 and you're going to have THAT for an icon? Honestly if you're going to charge exorbitant amounts for something you should actually pay an artist for an icon to be proud of.

I'm a bit embarrassed by my first reply, I just didn't do my background reading before attempting to dive in. Apple's own Code Signing Guide is required reading before getting started: http://bit.ly/YazXao Once you get your footing, the app is much easier to use. Still, this is a very complex area and I would like to see more comprehensive documentation in the app. There is a short manual and a nice tutorial, but a lot of knowledge is assumed.

Given the audience of this tool, developers, I'm not sure the icon matters much. More important is whether the tool is easy to use, produces good results, saves me time, and the developer is responsive to support requests. So far, things aren't going so well… 1) Emails to the developer are bouncing and there is no other form of contact via the website. 2) I'm not sure of the difference between the three versions of Tighten (Free, Regular, Pro). 3) The app description uses terminology like "security requirements" which I'm not familiar with. These are probably common terms within the sphere of software security, but as a developer who is looking for help in a difficult area like this, I need a stronger list of benefits and reasons why I need this app, not a list of features like "Read PKCS#7 format", which means little to nothing to me.

I have since been able to contact the developer and let him know his emails were bouncing. So far, the developer is very helpful and responsive.
