Gemalto is an SDK providing advanced public key encryption and multi-factor authentication services.

This Knowledge Base article provides step-by-step instructions for using Appdome to add Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK to any Android and iOS mobile app.

We hope you find this knowledge base useful and enjoy using Appdome!

Using Appdome to Add MFA to a Mobile App by Fusing Gemalto Mobile PKI SDK to the App

Using Appdome, mobile apps will use  Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK to authenticate users and secure App’s data, as if Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK was natively coded to the app. Appdome for Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK is compatible with mobile apps built in any development environment including Native Android and iOS apps, hybrid apps and non-native apps built-in Xamarin, Cordova, and React Native, Ionic and more. This streamlines implementations, cuts development work, and ensures a guaranteed and consistent integration of  Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK to any mobile app.

Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there is no Appdome SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. Likewise, there are no required infrastructure changes and no dependency on file management or any other feature of the app. The Appdome technology adds Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK and relevant standards, frameworks and more to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.

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 implement Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK to any mobile app – instantly, no code or coding required.

Prerequisites for using Appdome for Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK

In order to use Appdome’s no code implementation of Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK on Appdome, you’ll need:

  • Appdome account – IDEAL or Higher
  • Mobile App (.ipa for iOS, or .apk or .aab for android)
  • A bundle ID licensed by Gemalto.
  • App Signature value directly from Gemalto. Gemalto gives out separate App Signature values for each app bundle ID.
  • Signing Credentials (e.g., signing certificates and provisioning profile)

How to Add Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK to Any Mobile App on Appdome 

Follow these step-by-step instructions to add Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK to Any Mobile App:

  4. Enter the App Signature value.
  5. Click Build My App.

The technology behind Build 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  Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK to the mobile app in seconds. For example, file encryption and authentication, work that ordinarily a developer would need to do.

Congratulations!  When your integration is complete, you will see the notice below.   You now have a mobile app fully integrated with Gemalto’s Mobile PKI SDK MFA.
