Network Analysis - Emulating/Automating App HTTP Server Requests (WireShark or other) 3 -- 2

My existing development team has created an android app that emulates another android app. I am not 100% familiar with this type of work so I will describe the project as detailed as possible. So please be aware that my terminology may not be correct.

I am looking for a network analyst who can analyze a specific Android app (and maybe a website) for information on how the app communicates with its host server. For example, in this app a user can create an account. We would like to recreate this account creation in our own app by mimicking the exact network data that is sent from the official app. I believe we need information about the HTTP request and response with the server. For clarification, we do not own the official app nor its associated server and have no direct access to them other than as a user. We also need to recreate the official app's function of streaming a video.

In additional to taking logs of app traffic data, we will need you to analyze the data and figure out how we can emulate those messages so our own app can communicate with the official app's servers correctly. The data may be encrypted in some way and you would have to figure out the key if this is the case.


There are two requirements for this project:

1. Provide us exact details on how to emulate account creation requests.

2. Provide us exact details on how to emulate the 'video watched' request from a video streaming app app. My other developer said the following: "Give me all updated HTTP request for all communication for this app... And also "sig" parameter value.... How the value of this parameter is being generated... and what exact security algorithm is being used to generate the value".

Things this project may require includes:

Request: URL, request parameters, post/get

Response: JSON response

And other information like this that will need to be pulled from the official app and/or website.


We would be interested in repeat hiring after this task is completed as there is a lot of similar work to do. This project is a small test for the whole project which we will continue after the completion of this project.

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience with automating/emulating both web and app functions in a custom android app. The ideal candidate will also have a good understanding of Network Analysis (Wireshark or other) and with Android app development. App/Web hacking experience appreciated.

More experienced candidates who are experts at automation may be offered additional opportunities as we are looking for a long-term developer to work on this and several other projects that involve automation
