Android :: Network-based App Authentication

Sep 1, 2009

I'm trying to figure out how to develop a network-based authentication for my apps.  I need some way to authentication an ID from the phone with an ID from the purchase order.  Google Checkout has an ID in the order listing at the end:

"Trackmaster -  Trackmaster is a powerful racing lap timer that runs on your Google Android Phone. It's for the motorsports enthusiast. Record your speed and times, analyze and replay your data, and share with your friends. Works great for autocross, hillclimbs, road rally, and track days! Satisfaction guarantee... - ID: -9037815002946116244"

I checked and this isn't the IMEI.

Android :: IPhone Or Android Apps That Use SMS Based Authentication?

Jun 1, 2010

What are some iPhone or Android applications that use SMS as their primary means of user authentication?I'm interested to see such apps in action. SMS-auth seems like a natural approach that is well-situated to mobile contexts.

The basic workflow is: to sign up,a user provides a phone number; the app calls a backend webservice which generates a signed URL and sends it to the phone number via an SMS gateway; the user receives the SMS, clicks the link, and is thus verified and logged in. This results in a very strong user identity that is difficult to spoof yet fairly easy. It can be paired with a username or additional account attributes as needed for the product requirements.Despite the advantages, this does not seem to be in much use - hence my question. My initial assumption is that this is because products and users are wary of asking for / providing phone numbers, which users consider sensitive information. That said, I hope this becomes an increasingly more commonplace approach.

At my college we have this annoying web based login and my android phone doesn't like it.

Is there anyway to approach this in a better way or bypass the login or at least save it to automatically do it each time.I need a wifi connection! every building has it. annoying this is once you move to a different building the settings are changed(probably because of the routers) and I have to redo it. of course it never works

Android :: Android To Open Network Connection On Specified Network Interface - Network Type

Mar 6, 2009

I have been looking at the ConnectivityManager class documented at http://developer.android.com/reference/android/net/ConnectivityManage... .

I would like to know if an Android application can open a network connection (socket) on a specified network interface [on a device supporting multiple network interface types WiFi, Cellular, WiMax etc] ? I am looking for the capability for an application to open a socket on a given type of network for example over WiFi network or over 3G Cellular Data network.

If this is possible in Android, how would I code this requirement within the API Framework ? The ConnectivityManager enables an application to learn about available network connections and currently categorises them as either TYPE_WIFI or TYPE_MOBILE.

There is a member function in the ConnectivityManager class  called requestRouteToHost(int,int) [url] which "Ensure that a network route exists to deliver traffic to the specified host via the specified network interface. An attempt to add a route that already exists is ignored, but treated as successful." Sounds like this would install an IP routing table entry to reach a given host via a specified network interface type (WiFi or Mobile). After calling this would it be sufficient for an application to open a socket and connect to the desired destination address ?

Or perhaps the application needs to bind() a socket to a local address of a network interface of the desired type (WiFi or Mobile) Or by setting a socket-level socket option of SO_DONTROUTE ?

Android :: HttpUrlConnection - Authentication

Mar 24, 2009

I am beating my head against a wall trying to figure out why I cannot get Authenticated on my server whilst using HttpUrlConnection. I need to post a file in a post method and it seems I cannot do so with the DefaultHttpClient and a regular HttpPost (unless I am completely missing something?). I can get DefaultHttpClient to authenticate just fine using setCredentials() but the same doesn't exist for HttpUrlConnection so I try to set through setRequestProperty: conn.setRequestProperty("Authorization", "Basic " + Base64EncodedUserNamePassword); to no avail.

Android :: Writing Authentication System

Jul 21, 2010

I am currently writing the backend for a service which has 3 clients: browser, android native and iphone native. I am having a little trouble with coming up with an authentication system since I don't know what can really be done on the clients.

I am using django + twisted for the backend.

Basically, I am going to be writing RestfulAPIs to open up for the clients on both phones to call.

Now the real question is, how should I come up with an authentication system?

I have thought about using sessionids, this works very well with the browser and I can use django's integrated app for that.

However, I don't know if it's possible for both the iphone and android to obtain a unique sessionid on the handset. Should I write an API call to distribute unique sessionids?

if that's the case, is it possible for me to still use django's authentication system since a lot of the stuff here are customized? ( I am not even using a rdbms - I am sticking with mongodb, so I was on the verge of dropping django's authentication app ftm).

I have looked at foursquare's API and their basic auth method requires you to pass in user:password in every http request header. That adds 1 additional authentication each call which can kind of seem excessive.

Motorola Droid :: Using Browser That Uses Authentication

Nov 9, 2009

I was wondering, all my school networks have you log on once you get in the browser to show you a valid user. However, even though I have WiFi on and I am connected to the network, if I go into the browser it clearly just uses the signal I have for cell, not WiFi. I'd like to have the faster connection, but I feel like you have to be on only WiFi in order to put in that information, but I couldn't turn off my wireless network. Is there a way to do this, or is there a way to make this log in thing much easier? Cause I don't really want to turn my wireless cell connection on off everytime I want to authenticate ya know?

Android :: How Should Web App Use Facebook Connect Authentication?

Aug 8, 2010

My website uses Facebook Connect for authentication on the desktop and mobile sites. When a user clicks the Facebook button, the browser opens a popup window where the user can login to Facebook. When the user logs in, the window closes and messages the main window to go on.This works great on iPhone. A new window opens and is brought to the foreground. After logging in, brings the original window to the foreground. Everything is happy.On Android, the user experience sucks. Trying to be clever, Android opens a popup window on top of the current window. However, the login popup is completely zoomed out and the input boxes are tiny. Predictably, many users just close the popup and give up.How can I use the Connect JS library to force a real window to open, or at least force Android to make the login box presentable?

HTC Droid Eris :: Mobile Network ON - Can't See That Have Any Network Traffic Or Any Apps Running In Background That Are Syncing Data At All

May 29, 2010

My eris has always has pretty alright battery life, what I would expect out of a smartphone, if unplugged at 9AM it usually was running on its last leg around midnight. I've had it for over 5 months now, I've always had it activated on alltel, I installed the 2.1v3 leak before the official OTA was out and just lately it seems like there something very wrong with my battery life...

If I unplug my phone at 9AM within the past week and occasionaly check and respond to a text message, my battery had been down to almost 30% by NOON... what?..

I have noticed that if I disable Mobile Network (3g/1x data), the thing lasts all day and some... If I turn mobile network ON, I can't see that I have any network traffic or any apps running in the background that are syncing data at all... I've had google account sync mess up on me before and have to reset my google account because it gets stuck in a syncing loop, but its not doing that, already checked. Very weird.

Anyone thing it could be something wrong in my ##PROGRAM#/##778# provisioning menu, maybe something got changed?.. Maybe it could be do to Alltel's AT&T merger that's happening right now, maybe some 3G tower's radios are turned off or something...

Android :: Server Certificates For Two Way Authentication SSL Socket

I've moved it into my Android project and I'm getting the following error: "KeyStore JKS implementation not found".I've looked online a bit and it looks like there's a possibility that Java Keystores are not supported on Android (awesome!) but I have a feeling there's more to it than that because none of the sample code I've found resembles what I'm trying to do at all. Everything I found talks about using an http client rather than raw SSL sockets. I need SSL sockets for this application.

Android :: HTTPS Authentication Over WiFi Using HttpClient 4

Jul 9, 2009

I have Android pet-project DroidIn which utilizes HttpClient 4 (built into Android) to do some form based authentication. I started noticing that people who are using WiFi are reporting connection problems. It also doesn't help that site I'm accessing has self-assigned certificate. Well - the question is (I'm quite vague on WiFi details) If WiFi at the hotspot doesn't support HTTPS would that be a good enough reason for connection to fail and is there anything that I can do beside proxying into another appserver using HTTP which then would call HTTPS site?

At first I have only overridden "realm" and "nonce" DigestScheme parameters. But it turned out that PHP script running on the server requires all other params, but no matter if I specify them or not DigestScheme doesn't generate them in the Authorization RequestPreperty when I call its authenticate() method. And PHP script returns HTTP response code 200 with a message that PHP script requires cnonce, nc and qop parameters.

Android :: Activity Flow During OAUTH Authentication

Feb 3, 2010

I think that I've found the problem I am having with AccountManager that I described in an earlier thread that got no responses on the board.

I think it is a problem with the way that the Activity Stack is working during the OAUTH workflow. Here's the workflow as I see it. I found this problem by separating out my Activity, which I'll call M, from the oauth Activity, which I'll call O. In the course of authentication, the web browser is invoked and let's call that B.

When a user needs to start over with authentication, my application, through Activity M, starts Activity O. That, in turn, generates some magic URL that is sent to the web browser. So the browser is fired up and information was sent to the OAUTH provider to do a redirect back through the browser back to Activity O.

So, this how the OAUTH workflow looks up to the browser: M -> O -> B

At this point the user logs in and hits the Accept button and the browser then invokes my BROWSABLE activity, which, again, is O. I had thought this would unwind the above stack, but it seems that above situation disappears and what I have after the user hits Accept in the browser is this: B -> O

What I did to work around that is that I put a startActity(M) in O and that seems to work, but it is a workaround.

I believe there is something that I could do with launch modes or activity modes to fix this problem and maintain the original activity stack.

All that is happening, really, is that the O activity pauses for little while, then comes back with the goods, the login credentials. But when I tried to return the information via startActivityForResult (), nothing. Because M is no longer on the Activity Stack.

Android :: Send Email (Username And Password Authentication)

Nov 21, 2010

I am trying to send an email to a specific address by using my own email. So far, I know that I can use android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND to send an email. For instance:

final Intent emailIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_SEND);
emailIntent.setType("plain/text"); emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, new String[]{"blabla@gmail.com"});
emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "Log-in Sucessful");
emailIntent.putExtra(android.content.Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "Hi");
Activity context = null; context.startActivity(Intent.createChooser(emailIntent, "Send mail..."));

However, I do not know whether ACTION_SEND can accept username and password as well. This username and password basically will be used to authenticate the email sender. It's just like when you need to log-in into your gmail account before you can compose and send an email to someone.

Android :: PHP Socket Server (Push Notifications) - Security / Authentication

Aug 31, 2010

I have recently written a socket server in PHP that will be handling communication between an Android phone application and my PHP webserver. Due to the fact that Android doesn't natively support push style notifications we are going to be using our webserver as the middleware layer to handle our 'pushes'. The socket server is stable, runs well, and seems to scale nicely. While I would eventually like to re-write this in C I don't have the skill necessary to do that right now so I am going to be staying in PHP for at least a short while. As of this moment our Android emulator is able to communicate through the server, get pushes, etc. so that part is all covered.

My concern is that, right now, anyone can open a socket to my server and will be given a client connection. While we won't be passing sensitive data back and forth I don't want to allow just anyone to connect over and receive broadcast information, eat up my resources, and clog my server in general. The question is, how do I secure a server like this? Let's assume that I am running on port 25,000--can I set up some sort of SSL layer on that port and expect devices like the Android to be able to communicate over that port without any special protocols or jumping through hoops? I have considered asking the connecting clients to authenticate their user against our user database before being given a client connection, but that would require the passing of credentials in plain text over the network which I am not about to do.

I am rather new to straight TCP communication from PHP and feel like I might just be missing something simple that allows for authentication on this level.
Additional information: If I am able to get a valid username and password securely I would be using MySQL to validate the user and then accept/reject their connection based on the results of the query.
