What our Customers Achieve with the SDK

Security Level 3 for IEC 62443-4-2

Industrial systems and critical infrastructures have high security requirements. To fulfill at least security level 3 of the industry standard IEC 62443, physically separated key storages are required. This can be satisfied with external security hardware, such as security keys or smartcards. The Hardware Security SDK provides a framework for implementing this with PKI certificates or FIDO2 authentication.

Hardware-Encrypted Database and Data

Using external security hardware protects your data from being compromised by malware and network attacks. For data at rest, the SDK provides the necessary API for implementing full SQLite database encryption with PIV or OpenPGP hardware. For data in transit, hardware-backed end-to-end encryption can be achieved with custom smartcards.

Reducing Login Time and User Frustration with Passwordless Login

Google’s research study shows that two-factor authentication with FIDO security keys reduces their employee’s login time by over 60% in comparison to SMS-based solutions. Authentication failures fell to zero, saving thounds of hours per year in support cost. Our SDK brings the FIDO U2F and FIDO2 standard to your Android app.
