These days its important to secure your applications and your data. Adding good security measures to your projects can be difficult, and technological progress will force you to stay up to date. The DataFlex Security Library makes it a lot easier to secure your DataFlex applications.
We are pleased to announce the availability of the free DataFlex Security Library version 1.1 for DataFlex 19.0, 19.1, 20.0 and 20.1. With this new release we added support for Unicode and 64-bit to the security library. Also, the libsodium DLL is updated to the latest version 1.0.18.
With the DataFlex Security Library attached to your application workspace, you can create and verify hashes, store passcodes securely, add 2-factor authentication to your web application, and use encryption. This library provides access to some of todays most popular and secure algorithms.
The installer executable that you can download installs up to three library workspaces. The main library provides only a framework, which ensures that every security engine will be accessible using a single, easy to use API. This workspace also contains a manual (PDF) to help you get started.
The additional libraries provide access to CNG (CryptoAPI Next Generation) and libsodium. CNG is a part of Windows itself. Libsodium requires distribution of the dll, as well as (potentially) installation of the MS Visual C++ Runtime 2017.
