We proudly present a new maintenance release of our IAIK ECCelerate™ elliptic curve library! Version 4.01 adds support for curves from the FIDO ECDAA standard and fixes minor bugs. IAIK ECCelerate™ is based on Java 6 technology and has been thoroughly optimized for speed. Currently, it supports ECDSA, ECDH, ECIES and optionally ECMQV.
iSaSiLk 5.105 Maintenance release fixes some ECC related issues.
We need to get an individual export license for customers who are situated outside of the EU. However, we do NOT require an export licence if you are located in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland (including Liechtenstein), and the United States of America (for those countries the general export authorisation EU001 is valid).
This depends. If we require an import license from your country, it is simply a declaration you have to sign. If we require an export licence, we need to get some paperwork from you. As soon as we have all documents, we can apply for the export license, which typically takes about 4-5 weeks to be processed. We cannot guarantee any schedule, however! Therefore: please do not wait until the last moment to order our toolkit! If you want it to be shipped tomorrow and order it today, it is too late (and most likely contradicts our evaluation license).
Typically a server license is either needed when running a server-type-application, or when providing applets and comparable things on a website. So if you develop programs that are (a) provided to client computers (e.g. applet) and the number of client computers cannot be determined or (b) on a server (servlet), you need a server-license. However, when running your software as a service ("SaaS" model) you will need runtime licenses, depending on the number of users subscribed to your service.
This depends. Basically, you require one license for each server your software is installed on. The number of server licences you need depends on the number of server names that hosts your application and the number of processors of the physical machine. If your server application is accessible through one server name which runs on one physical machine having one processor, 1 server licence of IAIK is enough. If you have more server names or more processors, the number of server licences you need is the number of server names multiplied with the number of processors. The number of Java™ virtual machines does not matter. If you have only one developer working with one of our IAIK toolkits, one developer licence is enough. For developer licenses, only the number of developers who work with the IAIK toolkit counts.
Can I use runtime licenses which I purchased time ago together with developer licenses at Stiftung SIC, also for different future product purchases?
Your runtime licenses are always linked with the corresponding developer license(s), they were purchased with. This means that in case you renew your licenses, you have to update your developer license, as well as your runtime licenses.
These licenses allow you to develop applications based on our toolkits. You can choose between a limited number and unlimited developer licenses (depending on the number of developers within your company working with our toolkits). In case you purchase developer licenses at Stiftung SIC, you will be able to download new product versions for one year. For further details about developer licenses, please have a look at our licence conditions.
These licenses are non-exclusive, non-sublicensable licences to run the respective number of IAIK-Crypto software-based applications that have been developed by the licensee under a developer licence. They are transferable to customers or other third parties, which means that if the customer or other third party acquires a certain number of licences for IAIK-Crypto Software-based applications from the licensee, the respective number of runtime licenses is transferred to the customer. If the licensee grants his customers an unlimited number of runtime licenses, the licensee also needs an unlimited runtime license from Stiftung SIC.
