Automating mobile app interception with Frida

Mobile app network introspection for security research

Inspecting mobile app network traffic is a key part of security & privacy research, which helps protect everybody who uses modern mobile devices. It's also an indispensable debugging tool for app developers & QA teams. However, this technique has faced growing challenges from increasing OS restrictions and individual app countermeasures like certificate pinning, such that inspection now often requires advanced reverse-engineering knowledge and significant time-consuming manual setup. In this project, new tools will be built using Frida (a dynamic instrumentation framework) and integrated with HTTP Toolkit (a network debugging tool) to enable one-click targeted interception, making inspecting traffic from mobile apps on a user's own iOS & Android devices accessible to technical users without specialist expertise.
