Entrust has announced that it is giving away development kits through its Open PKI (public-key infrastructure) Initiative. The code, which can be downloaded at developer.entrust.com, lets developers build PKI compatibility into software. It includes documentation, sample code and access to a range of algorithms, including RSA's public-key algorithm - the heart of a PKI. Thanks to a generous licensing agreement signed several years ago, Entrust is among a handful of software companies that can freely distribute the RSA algorithm without having to collect royalties for RSA.
The code is available for Microsoft's C, C++, Java and Visual Basic. Entrust is also placing on its Web site a full-functioning PKI for third-party testing. With the free code, Entrust hopes developers will be free to build cryptographic capabilities and PKI compatibility into their software and then license Entrust's full PKI suite. In a related announcement, Entrust announced that its PKI software is compatible with any other standards-based PKI software package on the market.
