OpenEdge solutions
For cryptographic data that you work with in ABL and that is used in symmetric-key cryptography, PBE, message digests, and MACs, ABL provides additional tools to manipulate this data for transport, including:
*The GET-BYTE and PUT-BYTE functions to help maintain byte-endian order
*The BASE64-ENCODE and BASE64-DECODE functions to convert between binary and character representations of machine-level
For more information on the storage and transport of cryptographic data managed in ABL, see the sections on cryptography in OpenEdge Development: Programming Interfaces.
For cryptographic data used in public-key cryptography, including especially keys and digital certificates, OpenEdge provides or supports third-party tools to manage this data. For more information, see Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and the sections on managing OpenEdge key and certificate stores in OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration.
