AirID SDK for iOS

AirID SDK for iOS

1.0.4-GA

New or changed:

  • Analyzed and refactored code with regards to initial pairing and LTK / SK creation to make initial LTK key agreement more robust against LTK and SK negotiation failures with AirID1 devices.
  • Moved exchangeKey to AIDDeviceStateConnected
  • Added state counter to better track state changes and having better control for state transits
  • replaced calls to exchangeKey by state reenter 
  • Use state counter for detecting init abort on problems or connectivity issues when Key agreement is in progress.
  • changed Timer Timeout for pairing (from selection to successful final initialization)  from 30.0 seconds to 50.0 seconds 
  • Changed encryption TAG length from 8 to 4 to comply with other platform drivers and make packet transmit more robust
  • Updated logging to use device name where appropriate

Fixed:

  • AirID reader becomes disconnected during initial connection with pairing (regression)
  • Fixed mis guided Timer Timeout which sometimes fires even when Timer was invalidated.  This issue was partly responsible for firing  "Initialization Timeout" Errors even when LTK and SK where successfully negotiated.
  • Use encrypted data length for packet calculation not the "unencrypted" data length.

macOS

At the moment, we are developing a native driver for macOS to enable a system-wide smart card support using AirID. The first version of native support is planned to be available in Q4 / 2019.

To already use AirID with macOS today, the AirID Bridge as a connector between both devices is required.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact our support at support@certgate.com.


Linux

As there are many distributions of Linux available, please contact our support at support@certgate.com to get the suitable AirID driver for your Linux system.
