Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who are you?

    • Four guys with a background in computer science. We love to hack cool stuff in our free time!
  • For what purposes do you advise using Dexter?

    • Dexter can help performing manual static program analysis on android applications. It has a variety of features which help to extract information about the program semantic. Two example use cases we focused on during the development are malware analysis and code auditing. This is why Dexter provides high-level software architecture information like package- or class dependencies while at the same time being capable of showing the raw bytecode as a control-flow graph.
  • Is there a standalone version of Dexter for internal use?

  • I need feature XY. Can you implement it?

    • Please contact us. Since Dexter shall serve information as comfortable as possible, any feature related requests/discussions are welcome!
  • Will there be an iOS version?

    • We have no codebase or expertise for iOS analysis yet. However we already shared some thoughts about that in our team meetings.
      If you contact us about that, it might help to schedule our priorities ;)
  • Which extraction/export interfaces does Dexter offer?

    • None yet. However we want to implement a SDK which can run on the user's client computer for further analysis.
      If you contact us about that, it might help to schedule our priorities ;)
  • Which analysis methods are used by Dexter in the backend?

    • We only perform static analysis techniques. Dynamic analysis might be a future feature if needed.
      If you contact us about that, it might help to schedule our priorities ;)
  • How can I support you?

    • We are very limited in resources, especially time and money. If you increase one of them, we are likely to commit more code :)
