What compiled language for a backend development is the right one to move our technological stack to the next level? We've started to look around for a compiled computer language that will enable us to build microservices with higher performance. Now, don't get me wrong, we don't depart from Python at all. It is the extension of the portfolio.

23rd April 2021 marks the release of the fifth edition of the European Certificate Trust List (ECTL). This was released by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (EC JRC), and is used in Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS). It is otherwise known as the L0 edition release, intended for use primarily in test and pilot deployments. Currently these activities are primarily European and focus on fields such as intelligent cars and road infrastructure.

Pseudonymization is a critical part of GDPR compliance although there are no explicit GDPR pseudonymization requirements. The regulation vaguely states that businesses must enforce safeguards and security measures to protect all consumer data that they handle. The GDPR refers to pseudonymization and encryption as “appropriate technical and organizational measures.

The year 2018 will, at least in Europe, be a turning point for data privacy and personal information protection. In this article, I will focus on personal data processing. I describe methods of de-identification of personal data, such as pseudonymization, anonymization, and encryption.

I would like to share with you an exciting experience that we at TeskaLabs recently had. I founded TeskaLabs three years ago, as a startup focusing on building communication and security technologies for connected products such as mobile applications and IoT devices. Over that time, my team and I have witnessed so much. We’ve been a part of the TechStars program in London and worked closely with eKasa, who have tested our business and technology to its limits.

The official source of OpenSSL software is the OpenSSL website. One can download OpenSSL source codes archives and compile them for a given platform. The compilation work can sometimes be quite tedious, especially for exotic platforms. We, at TeskaLabs, set up this page because we frequently compile OpenSSL for various platforms for our internal purposes and this may save some time to other developers.

Using scalable and reliable software is vital for the success of any large-scale IT project. As increasing numbers of transactions are made, application infrastructure needs to stand strong and support that growth, and not be another source of problems.

After almost two and a half year we hope that the Heartbleed remains in the past. It is not true, unfortunately. Now we have proof that a security vulnerability remains with us for a long time, maybe almost forever even when there exist patches and fixes. The Internet is a battlefield among the good, the bad, and the ugly. Who has better attacking or defending technology wins.

In just the past 12 months, we’ve come across 100 mobile app projects at different phases. We’ve had conversations with more than 300 professionals active in the enterprise mobility space. We asked questions and uncovered the underlying problem that caused the current miserable state of mobile application security. It sucks. The answer doesn’t lie in technology but in us.

As the market with Cloud Computing and Mobile devices is getting bigger, there is another specific option available. It's called (Mobile)Backend-As-A-Service (BAAS) and it is extremely useful in situations we want to subscribe a complex backend service (alongside the core backend solution, there is usually a lot of additional functionality and statistics) and primary focus on development of client part of mobile apps for instance.

The previous tutorial introduces several concepts and helps you understand the basic of REST API integration with iOS client written in Swift. There are several limitations, with data storage being the most important. This article provides instructions on how to work around this restriction.
Published on November 25, 2014
The goal of this article is to extend the knowledge and develop an iOS application which is able to comunicate with REST interface provided by Node.js that we are going to create as well. A full integration with SeaCat is essential for information security of our example.

The goal of this article is to create a simple iOS client which generates a simple POST Request which will be read in host written in Node.js and the output generated in the console. The whole comunication will be handled by SeaCat which help us to establish fast and secure connection among our key components.

We decided to perform this test to validate our architectural, design and implementation decisions in regards to SeaCat performance. Our goal was to build the best-in-class product using the most advanced techniques to deliver highest possible throughput yet not compromising the security of the communication. Results of the test have been fed back into our development team to improve further overall performance characteristics of the solution.

SeaCat Mobile Secure Gateway is built using the SeaCat Application Security Platform. It provides strong protection against multiple types of cyberattacks by securing all application components, including the mobile application, network paths, which present an entry point to the enterprise network and application’s backend servers. It reduces an administrator's workload with easy PKI administration of distributed large-scale mobile applications. SeaCat Security Platform has been carefully designed to be flexible, fast, and highly secure.
