New SDK for Building In App Mobile Two Factor Authentication Solutions
|Stuart Parkerson in Programming Friday, April 18, 2014|
SecureKey is now offering a new developer program and online portal to make available its multi-factor authentication platform to developers of Android and iOS apps.
The SecureKey Developer Program and its Developer Portal offers developers access to the briidge.netConnect Mobile SDK and security APIs, a sandbox testing environment, a developer forum, plus documentation and other tools and services.
The briidge.net DNA technology provides developers a cloud-based, password-free, software solution that enables them to take advantage of execution environments and embedded hardware secure elements as they emerge in the market. This enables developers to deliver apps that offer the high levels of security without sacrificing user convenience.
The briidge.net Connect Mobile SDK enables developers to build simple two-factor authentication solutions into their apps with three key benefits: self-contained mobile in-app experience; ubiquitous device reach (software-based today migrating to secure hardware); and a design for consumer use (single multi-device Quick Code PIN).
A single Quick Code PIN can also be used across all of the user’s enrolled devices. The briidge.net Connect solution embeds a virtual secure element in the mobile device, providing a cryptographically unique device ID.
The SecureKey Developer Portalgives developers a forum for developing and testing their mobile apps, and interacting with other developers. After downloading the briidge.net Connect Mobile SDK, a Quick Start Tutorial provides an overview of the development environment, and sample code enables developers to get an immediate feel for working with the briidge.net Connect client and server APIs.
The Developer Portal also provides a complete sandbox-testing environment where developers can tweak the sample code and build mobile apps using the SDK to connect to their own servers. The Mobile API Guide helps developers integrate briidge.net Connect functionality with their application, and includes sample communications to and from the server. The Server API Guide helps developers understand how to handle requests from the Mobile API and call the briidge.net Connect server to validate the request.
When developers are ready to commercialize and deploy their product, SecureKey offers an easy migration path to move their mobile apps to a production environment.
