IDGo 800 - Middleware and SDK for Mobile Devices

IDGo 800 for Mobiles is a cryptographic middleware that supports the Gemalto IDPrime cards and Secure Elements on Mobile platforms: Contact and contactless smart cards, MicroSD cards, UICC-SIM cards and embedded Secure Elements (eSE).

The architecture of the IDGo 800 middleware includes several APIs such as PKI, GUI, PC-SC and Secure Storage. Those APIs are based on drivers controlling a wide diversity of readers: USB, Bluetooth, NFC, MicroSD, OMAPI.

Thanks to IDGo 800 for Mobiles, partners can easily implement the highest possible security level in their Mobile applications: Strong Authentication, data protection, digital signature, secure web access, VPN, etc.

Therefore they can now address a large customer base that needs to protect their data and networks with the well-established PKI technology.

Banks, governments, insurances, universities, hospitals, Certificate Authorities are examples of such organizations that have already deployed those technologies on their PC platforms and now need to migrate on smart phones and tablets.

The IDGo 800 and SAC middleware is also available on Windows, Linux and MacOS operating systems.

  • Easy integration in the main application thanks to the IDGo 800 for Mobiles Software Development Kit (SDK)
  • Three test applications provided in the SDK with their source code
  • Several configuration options and GUI screens that can be controlled directly by the main application
  • IDGo 800 for Mobiles takes care of the Secure Element detection, PIN entry and keys management.
