Open Source Tool: Diagnose iOS Code Signing Certificate Problems

Managing code signing certificate’s for iOS development can be painful.

One of the more common problems is the missing private key problem which can drive you crazy, and seemingly comes out of nowhere (just running this tool now I can see that I have some certificates inexplicably missing the private key).

This new tool diagnoses whether your are missing the private key, or the certificate is missing.

This tool is from Karsten Kusche and what’s great about it is that not only is it able to diagnose these common certificate problem, but that the tool can be extended to diagnose other problems, and from looking at the code you can see how Karsten was able to work with the keychain.

You can find the tool on Github here and Karsten has a writeup on the BrikSoftware blog here about the tool.

You might be surprised at how many certificates have issues right now once you run this tool.
