Continuous Integration

Posted by CSS Technical Team on May 16, 2012 5:14:00 AM

Continuous Integration (CI) is a process where software under development is continuously compiled and tested as changes are submitted to a revision control system. The goal is to identify issues such as code changes that break the build, broken unit tests, and broken functional tests, as soon as possible after such a change is committed. By identifying these issues earlier, they are resolved sooner, reducing the impact to the entire team. In an Agile Software Development methodology, this type of immediate feedback is critical for a team to meet their iterative goals.

iOS 5, S/MIME, and Digital Certificate Management

Posted by Ted Shorter on Sep 15, 2011 9:50:12 AM

iOS 5, Apple’s new operating system for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, will be released “soon” – Apple officially says “this Fall,” and many prognosticators are pointing to sometime in October. While the new release has hundreds of new features, the feature that’s of particular interest to digital identity practitioners such as CSS is one that’s received very little press to date:


The current version of iOS4.x supports the use of digital certificates for authentication: to things like wireless networks, VPNs, and Microsoft ActiveSync . But starting with iOS 5, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users will be able to send and receive digitally signed and encrypted email messages directly from their device.
