App Security API

The App Security API enables the use of security properties and capabilities on the platform, using a new set of API defined for application developers. You are not required to be a security expert to make good use of the API. Key elements, such as encryption of data and establishments of capabilities, are abstracted and performed "under the hood". For example

  • Use the API to store (E.g. cache) data locally, using the device non-volatile storage. Data protection/encryption will be done for you by the API implementation
  • Establish a connection with remote server (E.g. XHR) using a protected channel. SSL/TLS establishment and usage will be done for you by the API implementation

For more information please visit our API documentation @ Additionally please see our demo applications: - "MyPrivateNotes": - "MyPrivatePhotos":
