certMode – mobile S/MIME certificate retrieval

Secardeo certMode is a certificate retrieval service for mobile devices that enables seamless end-to-end encryption for native iOS or Android apps.

For an iPhone or Android user to encrypt e-mails to external recipients, their X.509 certificates are required. These are available via public certificate directories for retrieval via LDAP. In order for a mobile client to access such directory services, the certificate search queries must be appropriately converted and forwarded.

With Secardeo certMode, a seamless conversion of certificate search queries from mobile e-mail apps in LDAP is carried out according to a patented procedure. This means that global certificate retrievals can be made from many connected public key infrastructures, for example with the Secardeo certBox.

This allows the user of a mobile device to encrypt transparently when e-mailing to any recipient.

certMode EAS is delivered as a virtual machine for VMware or for Hyper-V.
