/n software, inc. announces the release version of SecureBlackbox 16.
SecureBlackbox 16 is the evolutionary upgrade of the library.
This version includes client-side and server-side components for FIDO U2F (Universal 2nd Factor) authentication. Client-side U2F support is available on Windows, Linux and macOS systems. Server-side U2F support is available on all supported systems.
CRL handling has been reworked to increase processing speed, with TElRawCRL class introduced. Use TElRawCRL when you need to check the status of a single certificate - it's faster and less resource-consuming.
SSH and SFTP components now support X.509 certificate authentication according to the modern RFC 6187.
In .NET edition, we have added classes to replace standard HttpWebRequest with the SecureBlackbox transport. This lets you, in particular, add TLS 1.2 and 1.3 support to earlier versions of .NET (where the built-in classes originally use HttpWebRequest).
The release version also includes support for PIV smartcards. Other types of smartcards will be supported in the later updates.
VCL edition of SecureBlackbox 16 includes new set of packages for RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo. NG edition has been merged into VCL edition (the downloads are separate for convenience, but the VCL edition license now covers the components for mobile development with RAD Studio as well) .
More additions and improvements are included as well and you can find them all in the history of changes.
IMPORTANT: due to the change in the license scheme, all previous keys are not valid anymore.
