Mobile Solution for Digital Signature
Keywords:Digital Signature, Bluetooth, Android, Public Key Infrastructure, Mobile Architecture
AbstractThis article describes a mobile interpretation of the PKI architecture used in document digital signature. The architecture relies on a three-way client-server model which communicates via a combination of Bluetooth and Wireless LAN channels. The idea of implementing such a system using an Android device as the signee is an alternative to the more traditional approach which uses desktop applications and USB tokens for digital certificate storage and use.
