S/MAIL, announced in January, provides a plug-in engine for developers who want secure S/MIME messaging in email clients, EDI software (electronic data interchange), and online service clients. RSA, a subsidiary of Security Dynamics Technologies (SDTI), is backing the protocol.
The toolkit provides a development framework with core cryptographic components, message formatting, message and certificate processing, secure data stores, and a security user interface. The integration of features is designed to provide fast turnaround for developers who don't specialize in cryptography or S/MIME, according to the company.
Now available for Windows 95 and Windows NT, S/MAIL toolkits cost $995. OEM pricing is offered on RSA's Web site.
