Hardware-based SOA Testing

Crosscheck Networks released an industry-first, hardware-based SOA Testing by intergrating SOAPSonar with Smart Cards produced by A.E.T. Europe B.V.

SOA Testing for signatures, encryption, decryption, and X.509 client authentication is now seamlessly provided within the SOAPSonar testing framework. SOAPSonar provides the ability to use keys from a SmartCard to perform digital signatures, encryption, decryption, and SSL X509 mutual authentication. SOAPSonar provides a native integration with A.E.T SafeSign Client software to dynamically access the digital keying information on the card.
