Add complete Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol security to your Internet communications without sacrificing development time or incurring security risks.
Security Builder SSL offers a single application programming interface (API) for more than 30 platforms and is optimized for a variety of environments including constrained devices and wireless applications. 80% smaller than open source alternatives, this unique design supports client and server authentication. Also, it can be configured with Security Builder GSE – a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic module.
Security Builder SSL also contains Suite B algorithms that support the National Security Agency’s (NSA) requirements for the U.S. Government Crypto Modernization Program.
Security Builder SSL can be used to provide secure communications between popular browsers on handhelds and mission-critical applications like e-mail and instant messaging. Also, it can used to off-load intensive cryptographic functions to hardware accelerators on e-commerce servers.
Optimized to be fast and efficient, Security Builder SSL offers the performance required for security on everything from mobile and embedded devices to desktops and servers.
This results in faster processing, better bandwidth usage, reduced storage and longer battery life. As an option, organizations can choose compression and standards-based SSL/TLS cipher suites that support elliptic curve cryptography (ECC), further enhancing performance abilities.
Thoroughly tested and supported, this implementation offers compliance with standards such as ANSI, FIPS, IETF, ISO and NIST and the newly published NSA Suite B requirements. Security Builder SSL also supports leading browsers and third-party certificate authorities such as VeriSign and Thawte. Combined with support for x.509 v1 and v3 certificates, Security Builder SSL can secure any size application or device.
Reduce Total Cost of Ownership
Security Builder SSL uses patented technologies and is designed to meet the most rigorous certifications to avoid the vulnerabilities of open source solutions. This helps you to get your product to market faster with fewer errors and protects your bottom line from legal and security risks. Certicom also monitors Internet security advisories such as CERT and NISCC, and provides customers with immediate updates if affected.
Security Builder SSL ships with an API that provides a single, common interface between the protocols and cryptographic providers of the Certicom Security Architecture, simplifying your development cycle and speeding time to market. The Rapid Application Development option enables Security Builder SSL to be dropped into your application or device quickly, further saving development time and money.
