Open-source IT-level security tools, lean, fast and portable
February 22, 2012 // Julien Happich
yaSSL, provider of open-source embedded SSL, has made IT-level security tools available for the Open Source Community, ensuring that mature, advanced security tools like Kerberos, wpa_supplicant, and OpenSSH are readily available for devices.
By making security services commonly used for enterprise authentication and encryption available for Android and other device platforms, yaSSL enables developers to simplify and secure device connectivity and to close the door on hackers trying to break through Internet security using the backdoor of a device, such as a router, smartphone, printer, or game console.
Our homes and businesses depend on network-connected devices, noted Larry Stefonic, Founder of yaSSL. The need for secure, authenticated exchange, whether for a gaming console or an Android smartphone, has become essential. We understood the pain developers had creating their own security solution or kludging tools together that were then slow and took too much memory. We've reduced that stress by providing the resources needed to protect and secure both the network and the device.
yaSSLs commitment to the Open-Source Community has sparked a number of efforts:
Kerberos to AndroidyaSSL ported Kerberos and a Java interface for the Generic Security Services API (GSSAPI) to enable development for the Android platform with the same secure, mutually authenticated and encrypted communication thats the de facto standard used by Microsoft, Google, Apple and Linux on enterprise and desktop computers. To provide an easy entry point for Android developers interested in Kerberos, yaSSL created a sample Android NDK application that wraps the functionality of kinit, klist, kvno, kdestroy, and Java GSSAPI client into a simple GUI front-end. With these capabilities in place, developers know their applications prevent eavesdropping and replay attacks. yaSSL also embedded CyaSSLs cryptography library CTaoCrypt in Kerberos to deliver very fast cryto implementations that are 20 times smaller and use less memory than the standard OpenSSL.All news
