[prMac.com] Belo Horizonte, Brazil - Rainer Brockerhoff has announced RB App Checker Lite 1.0 for Mac OS X, first in the RB Utilities series. It helps users and developers to check code signatures and receipts for applications from any source. It will show certificates, requirements and entitlements, cross-check all this information for consistency, and check that the application's resources have not been altered after signing.
Check if your application is properly signed before submitting it to the App Store or publishing it elsewhere, or if the application you downloaded has been tampered with.
For your convenience, RB App Checker Lite also publishes a Service (right-click on any application in the Finder) and has a fast-select menu for all running applications. RB App Checker Lite will also work for Xcode archives, frameworks, command-line executables, and most other bundles containing executable code.
The results will be shown as a text report, with pop-up buttons explaining details. Major sections of the report will show:
* Object code format and requirements
* Dynamic signature validation (for running processes)
* The signature's certificate trust chain, with expiration dates
* Details of the Mac App Store receipt, if present
* Details of the application's sandbox entitlements
* Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and up - 10.7.3 strongly recommended. Works with current developer previews of 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
Pricing and availability:
RB App Checker Lite 1.0 is free and available directly from the developer's site.
