RPK Targets Java

RPK Security Tuesday released a high-speed Java version of its Encryptonite Software Toolkit which allows developers to easily add globally strong encryption to stand-alone Java applications or Web browser applets.

It also offers a platform-independent security solution that performs at 95% of the speed of native code versions. It is ideal for high-data-flow and resource-limited applications like streaming media, secure music and video delivery, videoconferencing, e-commerce and embedded applications. "The RPK Encryptonite Software Toolkit for Java also solves the growing problem of username/password management," said Jack Oswald, president, RPK Security. "The Java version supports a transparent Secure Easy Login(tm) mechanism that simplifies the user experience, reduces fraud and increases security for a merchant's Web site, providing a simpler, faster, less expensive, globally strong alternative to a username/password secured by SSL." RPK's Encryptonite Engine combines the benefits of public key encryption with the speed of symmetric systems -- in one algorithm. It solves the security needs of streaming media applications, accommodating variable-sized, garbled, lost or out-of-order packets without sacrificing performance or security. Pricing starts at $695 per developer (development only). Deployment license fees based upon application. The Toolkit is also available in ANSI standard C/C++ for Win95/98/NT, HP/UX, Sun Solaris (C only) and Linux, Delphi 3.0/4.0 VCL for Win95/NT, DLL and ActiveX.
