Security Extension for Mobile Devices in WS4D-gSOAP

December 13th, 2010

The WS4D group developed an alternative security profile for DPWS, the WS4D Security Profile. Its purpose is to enable mobile devices – such as smart phones or netbooks – to securely communicate over DPWS. An implementation in alpha state as well as documentation on how to secure your applications is available in the WS4D-gSOAP trunk. The highlights are

  • direct authentication between devices (no authentication server, no certificate authorities)
  • highly flexible authorization subsystem
  • in nearest future: fine-grained configuration of security constraints

Of course, we provide an additional version of the well-known air conditioner example – this time using the security profile’s implementation. Check it out!
