Red Carpet Subscription Vol. 1 2023

The latest release of our signature Red Carpet Subscription is now available, featuring several new toolkits, updated components, enhanced cross-platform development, 3DS SDK Certification, and more. This release is an incremental update, and builds upon the features discussed in our Version 2022 Update.

New Product: Cloud SMS

We are pleased to announce the initial beta release of Cloud SMS. Send and receive SMS messages using popular cloud services including Twilio, Vonage, Clickatell, and others. The single SMS component implements the same API for all supported services, which simplifies failover or cost balancing.

IPWorks VoIP Beta 2 Adds IVR Support

IPWorks VoIP has been updated with a new IVR component. IPWorks VoIP is a SIP toolkit for CTI applications. The IPPhone component supports inbound and outbound calls (either individual or conference), playback of WAV files, and text-to-speech. Use the IVR component to route inbound calls using custom menus. IPWorks VoIP is compatible with on-premises or hosted SIP services.

New Product: PKI Proxy

PKI Proxy is a secure key server which enables remote code and document signing using centrally stored keys. PKI Proxy can be used by any PKCS#11-compatible application, including SignTool, Jarsigner and Adobe Acrobat. HSMs, PFX files and USB tokens are all supported, and the key never leaves the storage location.

SecureBlackbox Adds JAdES Components and MAUI Compatability

New JAdESSigner and JAdESVerifier components join our existing lineup of advanced signature components, including PDF, CAdES, XAdES and ASiC. JAdES, or JSON Advanced Electronic Signatures, is an ETSI standard designed to be used in Open Banking and other industries with sensitive information transmitted in JSON. JAdESSigner and JAdESVerifier fulfill the requirements of ETSI TSI 119 182-1 and meet EU eSignature requirements.

Other new features include official .NET MAUI support, PKI Proxy demo projects, improved support for hardware security modules (HSMs) and USB security tokens.
