Oracle Security Developer Tools Security tools are a critical component for any application development project. Commercial requirements and government regulations dictate that sensitive data be kept confidential and protected from being altered. Oracle Security Developer Tools (OSDT) provide you with the cryptographic building blocks necessary for basic tasks such as secure messaging to more complicated projects such as securely implementing a service-oriented architecture.
OSDT is delivered as a set of Java libraries (JARs) that ship with Oracle Application Server and JDeveloper. OSDT is part of
Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS), which provides an abstraction layer in the form of standards-based application programming interfaces (APIs) that insulate developers from security and identity management implementation details.
Oracle Crypto is a pure Java library that provides core cryptography algorithms, including those mandated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in their FIPS publications.
Oracle Security Engine extends Oracle Crypto by offering X.509 based certificate management functions. This component is a superset of Oracle Crypto.
Oracle S/MIME implements the IETF S/MIME (Secure/Multipurpose Mail Extensions) specifications for secure email.
