Here’s a report from the first publicly released security audit of an iPad app using the iMAS developed open-source security libraries. This report shows that securing an iOS app isn’t too difficult, can greatly improve security without affecting usability, and tools are now freely available (at Project iMAS).

iMAS has partnered with hReader to bolster the Apple provided security model. The developers added iMAS security controls to the application resulting in an experience that proved to be a great test-bed and partnership. hReader is a patient-centric mobile health data manager that securely provides patients and their families with their complete health information. To learn more about the application, go to hReader.org or check out their source code.

hReader Security Audit technical report is now available. The report describes a security audit conducted on hReader in the summer of 2012 and it details the resulting, measured security compliance increase along with the labor costs.
