A Ruby gem to verify SafetyNet attestation statements from Google Play Services on your server.

This gem verifies that the statement:

  • has a valid signature that is trusted using certificates from
  • has the correct nonce
  • has been generated recently (default allowed leeway from current time is 60 seconds)
  • has a signing certificate with the correct subject

With a valid statement your application can then inspect the information contained about the device integrity, calling app, and if applicable any integrity errors and potential solutions (see usage).


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'safety_net_attestation'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install safety_net_attestation


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

In your server application code, do the following:

require "safety_net_attestation"

statement = begin
rescue SafetyNetAttestation::Error => e
  # Statement is not valid, you should abort

# => {"apkPackageName": "", "ctsProfileMatch": true, ... }

# snake cased convenience methods are available after #verify call succeeded, use these to make your specific checks: 
# => true
# => true
# => ""
# => ["..."]
# => nil
# => nil
