This tool leverages the research linked below to understand the contents of TCC.db. Uses "Full Disk Access" permissions to read the contents of TCC.db and display it in human-readable format. Can output as a pseudo table viewable in the terminal or as a text table which is viewed best in a text editor.
- Dump global TCC.db as a pseudo table
./SwiftParseTCC -p "/Library/Application Support/com.apple.TCC/TCC.db"
- Dump user TCC.db as a text table (best viewed in a text editor)
./SwiftParseTCC -path "~/Library/Application Support/com.apple.TCC/TCC.db" -table
The base64 encoded blobs are binary blobs that describe the code signing requirement. This is used to prevent spoofing/impersonation if another program uses the same bundle identifier. They can be decoded using the
csreq binary as follows:
