Microservices Security Resources The new hype in Enterprise architectures are "micro-services". The concept to build distributed systems from many small, independent building blocks that are accessible through REST APIs is not new. The rise of container architecture where you can realistically start the whole operating system very quickly to just serve a method call. When you start thinking about building such a solution, or at least demo, one of the first questions are about handling security. Clearly just using HTTPS is...
Build a secure multi-device application using encrypted InterBase ToGo database Build a secure Multi-device Application Using Embedded encrypted InterBase ToGo In Part 1, we showed how to add database and column level encryption to an InterBase ToGo database.  In this Part 2, we show how to build a secure multi-device application that uses our encrypted InterBase database. In Part 1, we saw how to get our InterBase ToGo Deployment license.  Now we show the steps to build a secure multi-device application using RAD Studio, Delphi or C++ Builder and our ...

RAD Studio 10 Seattle - DataSnap and Cloud API now use platform native HTTP/HTTPS In RAD Studio XE8 we added new components to support the platform native HTTP/HTTPS libraries on all targeted platforms. I covered additional security programming details in my blog post "The RAD Studio XE8 Summer (Northern Hemisphere) and Winter (Southern Hemisphere) of Security!" We also updated Enterprise Mobility Services (EMS) to use the new native libraries so that you did not have to use OpenSSL. The Native HTTP libraries on multiple devices. and EMS use the new http://docwiki.embarc...
Deploying your EMS server applications for scalability and security Yesterday I wrote about some of the RAD Studio XE8 secure computing capabilities that are supported in the product features and technologies. Robert posted a comment asking whether the EMS Console app was secure as it was using HTTP for development and debugging. This is true.  I asked our EMS R&D team members. I was reminded that when you deploy your EMS server applications they run under Microsoft IIS using an included ISAPI.DLL that works with your EMS application package files. The ...

Comprehensive Data Security Requires Metadata - by Rob Loranger Anthem Inc. – 80,000,000 records stolen; Sony Pictures – 100 terabytes of data stolen; JP Morgan Chase – 70,000,000 records stolen; and EBay – 145,000,000 records stolen. This short list is the “tip of the iceberg” of organizations across all industries that have had significant amounts of their customer, employee, and other important organization data stolen. With the increased reliance of digital information by organizations and their customers, these trends will likely continue and be fueled ...
Embrace the Future of Data Architecture: Make the Switch to ER/Studio Sometimes you need to face the inevitable: the tool selected years ago is not the one you need for the future. Have you been struggling with complicated modeling tasks or outdated tools? Are your data models getting too big to handle? We’ve heard from a lot of customers recently who have been frustrated with their old data modeling tools, for multiple reasons such as: Lack of functionality Lack of support Lack of a future roadmap Embarcadero is committed to enabling our users to adapt to...
My C++ CodeRage 8 "Secure DataSnap Development" links and source code During my recent CodeRage 8 "Secure DataSnap Development" session, I have promised to make the source code of both demos available for download. I have just uploaded them to Embarcadero CodeCentral! Demo 1: Secure C++Builder DataSnap "Hello World" server and mobile client This is a very simple demo that shows basic security in DataSnap, including secure communication with HTTPS protocol, encryption transport filters plus authentication and authorisation in code. Demo 2: Secure C++ Dat...

Cloud Security, For Real This Time Cloud Security, For Real This Time: Homomorphic Encryption and the Future of Data Privacy. That's the title of my presentation at the next Central Ohio OWASP Quarterly Seminar, on 27 February at 1:00 p.m. Dan King, from Microsoft, will be talking about single sign-on for federated Dynamics CRM, very practical stuff which is in real world use today. I, on the other hand, will be talking about technologies which don't quite exist in fully practical forms today, but which I predict will change the ...
