What is common data security architecture?
Common Data Security Architecture (CDSA) is a set of security services and frameworks that enable the creation of a secure infrastructure for client / server applications and services. It is a secure application development framework that provides applications with security features for delivering secure web and e-commerce applications.
CDSA is primarily a middleware framework that provides a set of APIs for building and deploying secure applications. It enables application developers to easily add various security functions and services that have been predefined and designed for client / server-based applications. CDSA offers the following features:
- cryptography and encryption
- Create and manage certificate
- Policy management
- Authentication and non-repudiation
- Key public infrastructure
It was originally designed for Linux by Intel Architecture Labs, but it now also supports the Windows platform.
