Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries over the next few weeks. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.
Archived:Symbian Cryptography APIs
The Cryptography module is the basis of the Symbian OS Security system. The services provided by this module are used by the following components: Certman (Certificate Management), Software Installation, Secure Communication Protocols (e.g., SSL, TLS, IPSEC), and WTLS. This package contains the published header files allowing developers to make use of the built-in Symbian OS cryptography libraries.
These header files are being made available on the Symbian developer website as a package which can be installed over the top of an existing S60 3rd edition or UIQ 3 SDK, and includes APIs for encryption and decryption using symmetric and asymmetric keys, and password-based encryption and decryption. Applications compiled using these APIs will use the cryptography libraries built in to Symbian OS phones and emulators.
Installation and use
Download the Archived:Symbian Cryptography APIs#Download package.
Run the set-up application then copy the API files to the compatible SDK you plan to use them with.
