Tip For Encrypting Your Data Over App Tethering In #Delphi 10 Seattle On Android And IOS


Developer Al Mannarino from Embarcadero has a blog post up explaining where to hook in encryption into App Tethering in Delphi 10 Seattle. App Tethering is the set of components that easily allows you to send data between your applications on a local network. For example, you could have your Android device act as a video game controller for an app running on a Windows machine or an Apple Ipad. App Tethering works across Android, IOS, OSX, and Windows. The blog post covers the various events that are available in the App Tethering components where you can access the data before it is sent and after it has been received. In these events you can add encryption to the data to make it more secure. The blog covers how to add a basic xor cipher to the data but you would probably want to use something more secure and industry standard in a real world scenario. The App Tethering components ship with Delphi 10 Seattle, Appmethod, and C++Builder. They support both the Firemonkey and VCL frameworks.
