A Ruby gem to verify Android Key attestation statements on your server. Key attestation allows you to verify that the cryptographic keys you use in apps are stored the a hardware keystore of an Android device.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'android_key_attestation'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install android_key_attestation


Request an attestation statement as described in the Android developer documentation and send the certificate chain to your server application.

In your server application code, do the following:

require "android_key_attestation"

statement =

# Verify the attestation certificate was issued for the challenge you generated
rescue AndroidKeyAttestation::ChallengeMismatchError => e
  # abort

# Inspect properties of the attestation certificate belonging to the generated key pair, see
# for more details. The gem uses snake_case versions of the lowerCamelCase names in the above link.
