Are there any examples on how to use TPM/SE modules in Android, IOS, WP with SecBB? We're looking into using SecBB for X-Platform Mobile TPM usage.

Best regards

SecureBlackbox supports PKCS#11 on some platforms including Android and iOS but not Windows Phone at the moment.

PKCS#11 is an interface that allows use of cryptographic keys, stored on hardware devices (this includes asymmetric cryptography as well as symmetric crypto keys).

We have a couple of samples of PKCS#11 use on Desktop and the general principle is the same for mobile devices as well. The design of the authentication mechanisms and whatever else you want to use PKCS#11 for is up to you. I.e. we don't have ready-to-use authentication schemes shown in the samples. We have components for OAuth, SAML (in SecureBlackbox 13) and OTP authentication schemes within SecureBlackbox. Possibly they can be combined with hardware keys, but this is a question about design, not implementation.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
