Third-party libraries detector for Android apps


LibScout is a light-weight and effective static analysis tool to detect third-party libraries in Android apps. The detection is resilient against common bytecode obfuscation techniques such as identifier renaming or code-based obfuscations such as reflection-based API hiding or control-flow randomization.

LibScout requires the original library SDKs (compiled .jar/.aar files) to extract library profiles that can be used for detection on Android apps.

Unique features:

  * Library detection resilient against many kinds of bytecode obfuscation.
  * Capability of pinpointing the exact library version (in some cases to a set
    of 2-3 candidate versions).
  * Capability of handling dead-code elimination, by computing a similarity
    score against baseline SDKs.
