    10. 10. Why Mobile? 1.1 billion smartphones in the world At the height of Internet bubble, there were only 28 million broadband users 10
    11. 11. The Future: Mobile, Social, and Collaborative..  Growing demand to use the latest technology  Increasing trend towards "bring your own device"  Clients expect a mobile experience (smart phones,  By 2013, 80% of businesses will support a workforce using tablets for anytime, anywhere service. *  By 2014, 90% of organizations will support corporate applications on personal devices. *  Online/mobile/social is creating new opportunities to enrich interactions *Forrester 11
    12. 12. Information in your pocket 12
    13. 13. Did you know? The smartphone in your pocket has more computing power than NASA when it put a man on the Moon in 1969 1313
    14. 14. People and information are rarely co-located 14
    15. 15. What is your mobile strategy?  One size does not fit all  Native, hybrid or mobile web – depends on use case - Native costs are much higher - Hybrid (HTML5) security - Mobile web extends reach to more devices  Platforms - iOS, Android, Windows - Devices – Phone or tablet  Backend support  Security  Distribution Approach 15
    16. 16. Challenges in Mobile App development  Ease of use of mobile phones and tablets creates impression of simplicity  Platform & Technology fragmentation  “Consumer” expectations are high  Time to market pressure “to be in the game”  Integration with existing systems  HTML5 security  Secure document handling 16
    17. 17. Integration Challenges  Not all Enterprise back-ends are mobile ready  Re-use of corporate assets is mandatory - Changing systems is not realistic  Securely exposing Enterprise assets via REST  Expensive, time consuming and tedious work  Ongoing support and maintenance 17
    18. 18. Integration approach for mobile age 18 Any client device: - Desktop - Laptop - Tablet - Phone - … Corporate Firewall REST request (Post, Get, …) REST response (JSON or XML) SOAP Server DB Server RestXpress: Creates SOAP request and invokes Web Service Parses SOAP response and converts it to JSON or XML RestXpress: Sends SQL statement to DB Parses returned dataset and converts it to JSON or XML
    19. 19. Security Challenges – HTML5 (hybrid) apps  Hybrid apps are the best way to write once run anywhere.  Generic hybrid app is exposed to all sorts of security threats. Namely code, data at rest/transit.  There is currently no generic or platform specific solution on the market.  HTML5 app source code (HTML5, JS, CSS) is not secure  Web browser content and data storage not secure. 19
    20. 20. Approach for Secure HTML5 Apps 20 Server REST API Business Logic Cordova Native Libraries HTML5 Cache Cookies Cache HTML5 Local Storage HTML5 Local Session Web View Secure Server Authentication Authorization HTML5 Apps Repository HTML5 App Secure Cache HTML5 App HTML JS Cordova.js CSS HTTPS / SSL Channel HTTPS / SSL Channel Web SQL Database Proxy Service
    21. 21. Security Challenges – Secure Document handling 21 Wolters Kluwer Demo • Develop additional security framework for iOS as extension creating security for web cache & cookie files on iOS devices. • Store any document in the security storage to access it in offline mode. • Security storage utilizes AES-256 CBC encryption on 1024 bytes long pages for web cache (and 4096 bytes long pages for files) • This security framework can be used with any hybrid application based on iOS. • Web sources will be on the private web server and use client authentication.
