Account Balance Web Service

By: linuxdoc | 23-08-2019 23:07

Web service for account balance queries. Would use something like http get query with username, password and a web service key token to stop brute force attacks etc.

Would return balance (in £), goodybag remaining mins, remaining texts, remaining data and expiry.

I want to integrate my GiffGaff account balance into software on my laptop. Would be handy just to query a web service and get data returned in a consistent format so I can display account balance etc on my laptop's top status bar.

It is already simple enough to interact via the website.

As far as security is concerned, JSON tokens can be compromised. An attacker embeds a new key in the header of the token and the server uses this new key to verify the signature!

It would be 100% easier for everyone just to check your giffgaff app balance on login to giffgaff.com to see your account balance.

Isn't it just as easy to log in and look at your dashboard?
