Abstract: Today’s applications need to work with a heterogeneous collection of platforms. Servers, desktops, mobile devices, and web browsers share data and workload. Many of these applications handle sensitive data or even have security as their core feature. Secure messaging, password storage, encrypted cloud storage applications or alike make use of cryptographic algorithms and protocols. These algorithms and protocols require keys. The keys in turn have to be provisioned, securely stored, and shared between various devices. Unfortunately, handling the keys and the availability of cryptographic APIs evokes non-trivial challenges in current heterogeneous platform environments. Also, the implementation of APIs supporting cryptographic protocols on arbitrary platforms require significant effort, which is a major challenge when new cryptographic protocols become available. Our approach, the Crypto Service Interoperability Layer (CrySIL), enables applications to securely store/use/share key mater ial and supports a wide range of cryptographic protocols and algorithms on heterogeneous platforms. CrySIL complements existing solutions that mitigate the aforementioned problems through central services by allowing for more flexible deployment scenarios. In this work, we explain the motivation of CrySIL, describe its architecture, highlight its deployment in a typical heterogeneous application use case and reflect on achievements and shortcomings.
