APK Digital Signature
2.0 | 1 Vote
When an Android developer creates an APK file, Android Studio (or whatever app the developer used to create their APK file) creates a META-INF directory in that APK file. This directory contains information used to verify the APK file's contents upon installation on a user's device, to confirm the APK file has not been tampered with between creation and installation.
Notably, META-INF includes the following files:
- MANIFEST.MF: Contains an encoded list of all the files included in the APK file
- CERT.SF: Contains encoded copies of MANIFEST.MF and each section of MANIFEST.MF; used as a digital signature for the app
- CERT.RSA: Contains a digital certificate used to verify CERT.SF
How to open an SF file
CERT.SF is not meant to be opened. Upon app installation, Android references an app's CERT.SF file to confirm the app's contents have not been modified.
