IBM Research has created application-level HTTP/HTTPS client libraries that you can use to make FIPS 140-2 encrypted HTTP/HTTPS requests directly within mobile applications. In this article, get step-by-step instructions for integrating the HTTP/HTTPS client libraries into your IBM Worklight® Studio hybrid and native iOS and Android apps. You'll then be able to invoke the library APIs to create FIPS 140-2 encrypted network requests and transmit them to FIPS 140-2 certified SSL termination points—both inside the firewall of private enterprise networks (through a reverse proxy architecture) and outside of them.
