RSA BSAFE(R) SSL-C software is engineered to provide developers with a high-quality, supported product that includes everything needed for delivering SSL-enabled applications quickly and securely. RSA BSAFE Cert-C software is a certificate handling software development kit for creating applications that integrate into a public key infrastructure (PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) A framework for creating a secure method for exchanging information based on public key cryptography. The foundation of a PKI is the certificate authority (CA), which issues digital certificates that authenticate the identity of ). Based on open standards Specifications for hardware and software that are developed by a standards organization or a consortium involved in supporting a standard. Available to the public for developing compliant products, open standards imply "open systems;" that an existing component in a system can be replaced and thoroughly tested for multi-vendor interoperability, RSA BSAFE Cert-C software is designed to provide in one package all the certificate processing and cryptographic software that developers need for building certificate-enabled applications.
"RSA Security's proven encryption, certificate management, and PKI software will provide a strong, standards-based reference foundation for the Array SP product line," said Donald. J.
