RSA debuts XML signatures security for Web
RSA Security has begun shipping its software development kit (SDK), RSA BSAFE SecurXML-C, allowing developers to add digital signatures using XML technology to Web services.
The SDK can help developers secure the authenticity and integrity of a Web services message without having to posses extensive knowledge of cryptographic science and security practices, formatting standards and specialized Web services security protocols, RSA Security said. The product is aimed at developers writing Web service applications for Microsoft's Windows, including 2000 and XP, and Unix environments such as HP-UX and Red Hat's Linux.
The RSA SDK includes all the cryptographic and certificate functions required for building XML digital signature-compliant applications at the point of creation, the company said. The tool kit features detached, enveloping, and enveloped XML digital signatures and verifying XML digital signatures to ensure the authenticity and integrity of signed data, RSA Security said.
