Secure, Unified, Powerful and Extensible Rust Android Analyzer

Welcome to SUPER! Here you can find all the information relevant to the SUPER Android Analyzer. You can find news too, and of course, the downloads. SUPER is a command-line application that can be used in Windows, MacOS X and Linux, that analyzes .apk files in search for vulnerabilities. It does this by decompressing APKs and applying a series of rules to detect those vulnerabilities.

SUPER has been developed in Rust, a systems programming language that gives performance similar to well-written C/C++, while avoiding memory leaks, data races, and giving memory safety. This programming language was selected to improve all the Java or Python based alternatives. It also gives us the ability to perform much more powerful checks faster.


Using SUPER is really simple:

super {apk_file}

If SUPER is installed in the current directory, in Unix, you will need to run ./super instead.

This will decompress all the files in the dist/{package_name} folder, analyze them with the rules in the rules.json file (and configuration in the config.toml file) and generate the results in the results/{package_name} folder.

In the results page, an index.html file will contain the report, while a report.json file will have a machine readable format of that report. In the case of using the verbose mode (see below), the report will also be shown in the terminal.

You can learn about more specific use cases by running:

super --help

You can also configure in the config.toml file the paths of vendor, downloads and other folders. If the package was installed using one of the provided packages, the default configuration will usually simply work. If not, probably the same folder where super is called from will work (usually the installation folder, or the current workspace). If willing to use other paths, a sample configuration file can be found in the config.toml.sample file.

Lots of parameters can be configured in that file, such as the threads that will be used for the analysis or the rule file. We currently require some Java dependencies that are included in the packages. This should change once #22 is implemented.
