Department of Homeland Security review of First Responder Applications
  • Do the developers have any information regarding DHS' latest report about security vulnerabilities found in 32 of the 33 First Responder apps that were tested? Specifically, how this app performed and potentially what was done to secure the demonstrated vulnerabilities?

    Full report attached.

    Thanks!

  • We participated in the pilot program.  Our iOS app had one red flag that we addressed as soon as we were told about it, and several of the orange flags like "requesting access to a users contacts" and "requesting access to the devices location" that just required an explanation.

    Our Android app had the same orange flags, with no red flags.
