With the GA of OpenEdge 11.2 now successfully behind us, it’s time to take a closer look at one of the “mega topics” that (almost) everyone is talking about – security and mobile apps. In this two part series, we’ll first take a closer look at security from the mobile client perspective. In part two, we’ll dive into security requirements at the Web and Application Server Tier and explore the capabilities of the OpenEdge platform and how it satisfies those requirements to provide a secure, end-to-end deployment platform for mobile apps. I hope this proves useful for the broader OpenEdge Community, and not just Alice and Bob….

Clearly, these authentication models have to match across the mobile app and mobile application – i.e. Web Tier components of the architecture. Progress supplies mobile application security templates for appropriately locking down resources on the Web Tier (but we’ll look at that at more depth in part two).
That’s it for this brief tour of client-side security in OpenEdge Mobile. Watch this space for part two where we’ll look at more depth in securing the Web and Application Server components of our Mobile Application architecture.
