security in RIM application

Hi All,

 

I have developed an application, in which i need to sync the data stored in persistent storage to the server. I do this task with the help of http url. I want to implement security to the data which I am sending to the service and getting from the service over the air.

 

Are there any tools or encryption logic which will asure me that my data is secure over the air.

 

Thanks,

rdhepe

In addition to BBDeveloper, you will have to implement the decryption algorithm in the server side..

Re: security in RIM application

Thanks for your reply. I have one concern that my BB application is developed with RIM libraries, and I have used java on the server side. Do I need to send the random key at the server with encrypted data or some other thing?

 

Is there any other thing which will not change the code, just by applying that will solve the security problem?

Re: security in RIM application

you can use a symetric encryption, with a known key on both sides.
or challenge/response. or...
there is a lot of available literature on that, the impl on BB-side is very easy.

Agree with simon.. Choose one algorithm, implement yourself..

 

Cheers..
