Nowadays it is more important than ever to ensure sensitive data to be protected. In this post, I’ll show you how to ensure data protection within your Akavache powered Xamarin.Forms app.
Following up the initial post on using Akavache and Xamarin.Forms together, I will show you some typical methods for storing, retrieving and deleting data from the cache instance we implemented in the first post of this series.
Caching is very important, especially in mobile applications. With this post, I kick off my new series about how I use Akavache in my Xamarin.Forms applications and quite a few gotchas while doing so.
To sum up my posts on data encryption for (mobile) applications, I’ll show you how encrypt and decrypt data in an Universal Windows Platform app with the built-in DataProtection API.
Like I promised already in my blog post about asymmetric encryption on Android with Xamarin, this post is all about asymmetric encryption on iOS, utilizing the built-in KeyChain API of iOS – once again, without any user input and any hardcoded values.
In the last few days, I was working on some improvements for my WordPressReader (Standard) library. I am happy to announce that an update to version 1.2.0 is now available.
In this post I am showing you how to securely create a key pair for asymmetric encryption in your Xamarin Android app, without any user interaction needed and – more important – without any hardcoded values in your code.
If we want to display some text in our Xamarin.Forms app, chances are high we are going to use the Label control. But what if we want to limit the maximum visible lines of such a Label? This is what this #XfQaD is about.
With this post, I am happy to announce my new WordPressReader (Standard) library is now available on Nuget.
In this second #XFQaD I am showing how to read your applications’s package identity as well as the package version using their dedicated native implementations for that task.
