HOB eSecure SDK
Secure Access and Authentication for Smart Phone or Tablet Apps - Easy, Flexible and Cost-Effective
Nowadays, an increasing number of B to C apps for smartphones and tablets are appearing on the market, and experts predict further dynamic growth of these solutions. But also in cases of B to B and within companies themselves, apps are gaining more and more relevance. They support smooth business workflows and increase business flexibility. As most apps have been made for the iPhone or iPad in the past, Android apps are the market leaders within the B to C market today.
Whether you exchange information and data via apps between your company and your customers or within your company itself, security and data protection are highly recommended. But today it is an increasing challenge to ensure mobile security against malware and industrial espionage
Develop Secure Apps – Proven Worldwide and Highly Performant
HOB eSecure SDK (Software Development Kit) supports you in developing highly secure App’s and provides you with the unique HOB WebSecureProxy.
The HOB eSecure SDK Software Development Kit contains two main components:
A Software Development Kit for the integration of SSL routines for the client side, and authentication routines for the desired authentication on the server side using the HOB WebSecureProxy, the server component of HOB RD VPN. Central components of HOB WebSecureProxy are certified in accordance with the Common Criteria by the German Federal Office for Information Security.
Security and Authentication
HOB eSecure SDK on the client side includes SSL routines and some HOB WebSecureProxy client components for both, Android and iOS. It delivers simple interfaces for easy integration of above mentioned parts in existing or new apps.
On the server side, HOB WebSecureProxy, using the WSP-socks-mode, supports authentication consisting of an exchange of user ID and password. Additionally, authentication can also be made by the use of so-called “one-time passwords” (tokens). HOB WebSecureProxy is able to authenticate against Radius-, Kerberos-, and LDAP-servers. Furthermore, the HOB eSecure SDK supports a server-side change of password.
HOB eSecure SDK is available for all apps programmed in C/C++ for Apple iOS or in C/C++/Java for Android. An interface is provided for a GUI to pass on all needed parameters.
Based on this offering from HOB, you can effectively and flexibly develop apps requiring secure remote access to centrally stored data. Data access can be designed either as “read-only” or as “read-write.”
Protocol Conversion – Access Data Within Your Whole Company Network
Data and applications are often stored and run on different platforms within a company’s network. HOB eSecure SDK enables you to create apps that give you platform-independent access to almost all data and applications, due to the use of so-called Server-Data-Hooks, which provide the needed protocol conversion.
HOB eSecure SDK supports the following protocols e.g.:
Compression Library – Higher Performance
In addition, the Compression Library, as part of HOB eSecure SDK, offers the possibility to compress transferred data. A reduced data volume implies faster transfer rates on one hand, and on the other hand simultaneously a transfer of larger data packages. In fact, using the HOB eSecure SDK makes your app highly secure and ensures you to be up-to-date and conformant to the expected worldwide security standards.
Secure SDK is designed for development of apps for:
Prices:HOB eSecure SDK for Apple iOS or Android costs €10,000, each. On the server side, the usage of HOB WebSecureProxy as part of HOB RD VPN is charged relative to the number of concurrent sessions. Optional Server-Data-Hooks can be delivered by HOB: The cost of development for such Server-Data-Hooks is project-specific.
