For specialized use cases in your app
We provide the full package for you to get smartcard support in your app, including consulting and support.
We are in contact with a lot of different smartcard manufacturers to select the smartcards that match your requirements.
An app containing sensitive data can be fully encrypted. The user is prompted to tap the correct smartcard. If the correct smartcard is used, the content will be decrypted and temporary access is allowed.
New content (e.g. files, incoming messages) are encrypted without the smartcard (using the public key associated with this card). This allows, for example, to encrypt incoming messages directly for a messenger app without holding the smartcard against the device.
This is not a simple unlock screen, it uses real public-key cryptography to encrypt the whole app database!
Due to its public-key encryption scheme, it can be utilized to provide authentication, for protocols such as SSH, without requiring central identity servers.
This is helpful to maintain critical infrastructure that is not necessarily connected to the Internet. A certificate scheme, such as SSH certificates or X.509 certificates can be utilized for key management.
