Add BlackBerry Dynamics Authenticated Tunnel to Mobile Apps

Appdome offers an easy and fast way to add BlackBerry Dynamics Authenticated Tunnel to mobile apps.  The BlackBerry Dynamics SDK supplies an app with a BlackBerry propriety tunneling solution. Additionally, BlackBerry offers an Authenticated Tunnel. Using the default tunneling solution from BlackBerry, users authenticate to BlackBerry and then to sign into the underlying mobile app. Using Authenticated Tunneling, BlackBerry users authenticate once to the BlackBerry environment only. Using an Authenticated Tunnel, the underlying mobile app trusts the BlackBerry authentication to access the corporate network.

When using Appdome to add BlackBerry Dynamics Authenticated Tunnel to mobile apps, users authenticate to BlackBerry and then to sign into the underlying mobile app. Using Appdome’s Authenticated Tunneling, BlackBerry users authenticate once to the BlackBerry environment only. Using an Authenticated Tunnel, the underlying mobile app trusts the BlackBerry authentication to access the corporate network.

This knowledge base article provides step-by-step instruction for using Appdome to add BlackBerry Authenticated Tunnel to any Android and iOS app.

The No Code Way to Add BlackBerry Dynamics Authenticated Tunnel to Mobile Apps

Appdome is a mobile integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that allows users to add a wide variety of features, SDKs and APIs to Android and iOS apps. Using a simple ‘click to add’ user interface, Appdome allows anyone to easily add BlackBerry Authenticated Tunnel to any mobile app – instantly, no code or coding required.

Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there is no SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. Likewise, there are no required infrastructure changes and no dependency on Kerberos, OAuth, OpenID Connect or any other authentication standard inside the app. Users merely upload a mobile app binary, select the relevant Blackberry implementation option, and click “Fuse My App.” The Appdome technology automatically adds Blackberry (formerly Good) Dynamics SDK and relevant standards, frameworks and more to the app, with no manual development work at all. The integrated mobile apps will then use BlackBerry’s Authenticated Tunnel to securely tunnel app data as if BlackBerry Authenticated tunneling schemes were natively coded to the app.

Appdome makes it easy to add BlackBerry Dynamics Authenticated Tunnel to mobile apps

The technology behind Fuse My App has two major elements – (1) a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of code sets needed for mobile integrations, and (2) an adaptive code generation engine that can recognize the development environment, frameworks and methods in each app and match the app to the relevant code-sets needed to add BlackBerry’s Authenticated Tunneling to the mobile app in seconds. For example, the technology of Authenticating Tunnel Connections, work that ordinarily, a developer would need to do.

Congratulations! When Appdome has completed your implementation (usually about 30 seconds), you’ll see the notice below. You now have a mobile app, fully integrated with Appdome’s EMM Authenticated Tunnel.

After Adding EMM Authenticated Tunnel to a Mobile App on Appdome

After you have added Appdome Authenticated Tunnel to any Mobile App on Appdome, there are a few additional steps needed to complete your mobile integration project.

Add Context™ to the Appdome-Fused App

Appdome is a full-featured mobile integration platform. Within Context™, Appdome users can brand the app, including adding a favicon to denote the new service added to the app.
For more information on the range of options available in Context™, please read this knowledge base article.
