ironcontrol - IF-MAP admin tools on Android

alternate text

The Trust@FHH research group presents a new software: ironcontrol.

ironcontrol is an IF-MAP 2.1 client for Android smartphones (>=4.0), that allows the user to “control” a MAP server. It was developed within a 1 year students project at the Hochschule Hannover (University of Applied Sciences and Arts).

The main features in this first public release are:

  • Publish metadata (either Standard Metadata for Network Security or Vendor Specific metadata)
  • Search for metadata with filters, search depth, …
  • Subscribe to metadata
  • Get notifications on new subscriptions results (via vibration, sound effect, notification)
  • Navigate the results of searches and subscriptions
  • Manage connections to multiple MAP servers
  • Use both basic and certificate-based authentication
  • Import and use new/third party certificates of MAP servers

The software is available at our Github account and can be build with Maven, a Java JDK (>=6) and an installed Android SDK. A Readme file is provided that explains the steps to build and deploy ironcontrol.

We also provide a User and Developer documentation in our Download section.

If you have any comments or questions, please contact us at or directly create an Issue at the corresponding Github-project page.
