Description
The Security Builder FIPS Java Module is a standards-based cryptographic toolkit written in Java. It supports optimized Elliptic Curve Cryptography and provides application developers with sophisticated tools to flexibly integrate encryption, digital signatures and other security mechanisms into Java-based applications. The Security Builder FIPS Java Module is intended for use by developers who want government level security and can also be used in conjunction with other Certicom developer toolkits including Security Builder PKI and Security Builder SSL.
