[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Atama, a UK developer and manufacturer of connected devices, today released a Software Development Kit (SDK) for its Sesame2 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Lock.
* For apps that handle sensitive data, such as confidential commercial information or patient medical records protected by HIPAA, the SDK can be used to provide 2-Factor authentication by requiring a Sesame key to be nearby as well as a password before allowing a user to log into an app
* Apps that require multi-user support in less secure environments can use a Sesame lock as a means to automatically identify a user as he gets close to the iPhone/iPad or Mac
* The SDK makes the integration of Atama's Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Lock with iOS and OS X apps straightforward by handling all aspects of Bluetooth communication as well as authentication through the onboard AES encryption hardware
"The Sesame Wireless Lock is a very flexible product and our SDK now lets any developer interact with the hardware, without having to worry about the intricacies of Bluetooth 4.0 communication," said Martin O'Hagan, Atama's Head of Software Development. "Increasing security with 2-Factor authentication only takes a few minutes to integrate into any iOS or OS X app."
The Sesame SDK is available for download free of charge from Atama's website.
Sesame2 is currently available from Atama's Online Store, the Apple Store Online in Europe and most Apple Premium Resellers. Sesame2 locks and unlocks a Mac based on user proximity, greatly increasing workflow and security in the workplace. Discounted developer pricing is available from Atama's Online Store.
