The government has open sourced the code for Aarogya Setu’s iOS version. In May, the government open sourced the code for the app’s Android version. It has made the code available on OpenForge. This is the Indian government’s own open source platform. The Android version is available on Github.
India launched Aarogya Setu mobile App for helping augment the efforts of limiting the spread of COVID19. The App has over 114 million users as on 26th May. It is available in 12 languages and on Android, iOS and KaiOS platforms.
Bug Bounty program
Two months back, the government has also launched the Bug Bounty program that will be hosted by the MyGov team. It will equip security researchers with the opportunity to get Rs one lakh of bounty for finding security vulnerabilities within the app. There is also an additional code improvement bounty of Rs one lakh.
The process of supporting the open source development is managed by National Informatics Centre (NIC). Aarogya Setu’s source code has been licensed under Apache License. All code suggestions will be processed through pull request reviews.
