DolphinSure

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

 

DolphinSure is a framework of classes to allow any arbitrary data or object to be digitally signed in such a way that it can transmitted across an insecure medium and then later verified to confirm that has not be modified in transit. The trusted data is signed with the "certificate" of the originator and an additional benefit of the system is, therefore, that it is possible for the consumer to be aware of the data's origins. The digital signature that is associated with a piece of signed (or "trusted") data is virtually impossible to forge and the DolphinSure mechanism uses the international standards recommended by the US government (SHA-1 and DSA).
