TOR ANUMANA Launches ACRYPTO Cryptography Suite for Developing Secure Wireless and Wired Communications
The ACRYPTO Cross-Platform Cryptography Suite Now Available to Wireless Industry
SAN DIEGO, CA and KOLKATA, INDIA–( EMWNews – April 1, 2008) – TOR ANUMANA™, a
research and development company creating technologies and products for
computing and communication platforms, today announced the launch of its
new cross-platform cryptography suite, ACRYPTO, a library for enabling
secure communications. The ACRYPTO suite includes industry-standard
algorithms that provide developers the necessary security to ensure the
safe exchange of data between BREW® handsets and remote computers over
potentially unsecure networks.
“Today’s security practices will be unacceptable tomorrow,” said Subhashis
Mohanty of TOR ANUMANA. “We are committed to the research and development
of cutting edge algorithms and technologies so that developers can focus on
their area of expertise, knowing that they have peace of mind via TOR
ANUMANA’s security solutions.”
“Qualcomm recognizes ACRYPTO as a valuable extension library for the BREW
publisher and developer community to promote increased security practices,
as well as encourage the development of quality mobile applications,” said
Kathy Braegger, senior product manager and head of developer relations for
Qualcomm Internet Services. “TOR ANUMANA’s commitment to creating
beneficial technology for BREW developers is reinforced with the
availability of ACRYPTO.”
ACRYPTO extends BREW’s encryption support by providing AES192, AES256,
SHA256 and SHA256-based HMAC. ACRYPTO also includes AES128, SHA160,
SHA160-based HMAC, and the RSA algorithm.
ACRYPTO supports the necessary cryptography primitives to setup and
communicate securely. It includes public-key cryptography via RSA (supports
public moduli of 1024 bits and above), symmetric cipher via AES (128-bits,
192-bits and 256-bits), secure hashing via SHA (160-bits and 256-bits), and
hashed message authentication codes via SHA-based HMAC. ACRYPTO is
available now and is developed for Qualcomm’s BREW® solution, Microsoft
Windows, Microsoft Windows Mobile, UNIX, Linux, Mac OS and ARM ELF.
The founders of TOR ANUMANA anticipated early that wireless broadband,
expandable handset storage and “all-you-can-eat” data plans would become
main stream and present unique opportunities that were previously
unimaginable such as AFAR and ASYNC, TOR ANUMANA’s enterprise applications.
The company initially built enabling cross-platform technologies, libraries
and frameworks spanning mobile devices, desktops, laptops, servers running
Windows and Windows Mobile, BREW, Mac OS, UNIX , Linux and ARM ELF.
TOR ANUMANA plans to introduce a Java version in the near future and plans
to debut innovative applications for the Education space later this year.
TOR ANUMANA’s technologies and applications are supported by pending patent
