Apriva helps Android devices meet government security regulations with new SDK

engadget.com
Apriva, a provider of end-to-end wireless transactions and secure information solutions, has announced the release of a software development kit (SDK) enabling Android devices to be compliant with HSPD-12 security regulations.

The company says the Android SDK is meant to address a growing demand from the Executive Office of the President, the Office of Management and Budget, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense (DOD) to accelerate compliance with HSPD-12 beyond Windows Mobile and BlackBerry mobile devices.

“Prior to the release of this SDK, Android devices were not able to meet the fundamental requirements of HSPD-12 and DOD directives,” says Jeff Ford, Apriva’s Information Security Systems (ISS) division president.

Android device manufacturers and application developers can leverage Apriva’s SDK at no cost with a signed license agreement and employ it to integrate with the Apriva portable Bluetooth smart card reader. According to Apriva, the SDK includes all of the software, drivers, libraries, and interfaces needed to extend smart card operations into new or existing platforms and applications.

Additionally, Android device manufacturers can provide “STIG capable” platforms with the SDK, enabling add-on middleware and applications to be in compliance with government security policies. Apriva’s SDK is designed to handle the complexity of using and managing PKI smart cards, while providing a simple way to add the PKI-based encryption and identity management to new Android applications and platforms.
