SecureBlackbox ActiveX Transports - In-house

by EldoS - Product Type: Component / ActiveX DLL

EldoS Corporation discontinues development and updates of ActiveX edition of SecureBlackbox.
The ActiveX edition was based on dated and inflexible COM technology, so its maintenance was a complicated task and usability of ActiveX edition was very limited. Eldos have decided to devote their resources to other editions, such as new C++ and Java editions and upcoming PHP edition (and more).

Licensed customers of ActiveX edition can download their copy of the installer from My Control Center on the publisher web site. If you have a license for ActiveX edition and would like to continue using SecureBlackbox, please consider upgrading to the latest C++ or .NET edition of SecureBlackbox.

Security functions Internet transport protocols. SecureBlackbox ActiveX Transports is a collection of components that adds secure data transfer and storage in cloud environments, SSL / TLS client and server, FTP and FTPS client, HTTP and HTTPS client, SMTP and SMTPS client, SSH and SFTP clients and servers, SSH client and server and X.509 certificate management support to your COM application. SecureBlackBox ActiveX brings your applications up-to-date. Enhance them with outstanding security features.

SecureBlackbox (ActiveX edition) is a comprehensive component collection for network and document security.

SecureBlackbox is split to several packages:

  • SSLBlackbox - client and server components that provide complete support for SSL2, SSL3 and TLS1.x.

  • SFTPBlackbox - securely transfer files and perform remote file system operations using SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol, Secure File Transfer Protocol).
  • SSHBlackbox - access remote SSH servers using SSH2 or SSH1 protocols or build your own SSH server.
  • OpenPGPBlackbox - encrypt and sign files using OpenPGP algorithms and standards, generate and manage OpenPGP keys and keyrings. Compatible with PGP product line by PGP Corporation.
  • ZIPBlackbox - compress data with strong encryption.
  • PKIBlackbox - generate and manage certificates, certificate revocation lists, certificate requests. Complete support for Public Key Infrastructure including Windows Certificate Storages and cryptographic hardware.
  • MIMEBlackbox - compose and parse MIME messages with optional S/MIME or PGP/MIME security extensions.
  • MailBlackbox - Send and receive e-mail using SMTP and POP3 protocols. Compose and parse RFC822, MIME, S/MIME and PGP/MIME messages.
  • LDAPBlackbox - Provides components to access certificate storages and PGP key storages via LDAP protocol. Also provides LDAP access to Certificate Revocation lists (CRLs).


Secure standard Internet protocols for data transfer
Add security to standard Internet data transfer protocols like FTP, HTTP, SMTP, POP3, NNTP. With SecureBlackbox you will be able to transfer any data safely over unsecured channel. Moreover, built-in support for DNSSEC will protect your connection from DNS spoofing.

Store data securely in cloud services
SecureBlackbox offers a uniform way to access different cloud storage services such as Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure, and store information remotely with strong encryption, authentication and integrity checking.

Secure file transfer and remote command executions
Transfer file safely over secure SFTP channel. Securely execute commands remotely over SSH. SecureBlackbox allows implementation of SFTP and SSH clients as well as servers. SFTP API provides functions to create, read and write files, create, delete and enumerate directories, get and set file attributes and access control attributes. With SSH you compress and tunnel multiple TCP connections over one secured connection.

Encrypt and decrypt files and text using PGP-compatible algorithm
Your data can be sored or transferred in encrypted form. SecureBlackbox supports OpenPGP -- one of the most popular encryption and signing standards. You can extend your application with security functions such as signing, encryption, decryption and data verification using OpenPGP keys.

Encrypt and sign documents in PDF and XML formats
With SecureBlackbox you can extend your XML processing applications with XML-compliant password-based, certificate-based and OpenPGP-based encryption, signing and timestamping. Perform processing of your XML documents according to XMLEnc, XMLDSig and XAdES specifications. Add password-based and certificate-based encryption, certificate-based signing, timestamping and compression to your PDF documents.

Encrypt and sign office documents
If you have an application that creates or processes MS Office, OpenOffice or XPS documents, you can extend your product with digital security features such as strong encryption and digital signing (and signature verification) of created or processed files.

Create and parse MIME-compliant mail with security extensions
Secure your e-mail messages and attachments. SecureBlackbox makes possible implementation of full MIME and S/MIME functionalities. Extend e-mail functionality by sending any types of attachments, including multimedia without breaking existing implementations.

Support Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), manage X.509 certificates and storages
SecureBlackbox lets you add PKI functionality to your application. This includes certificate management, signing, encryption, timestamping, signing of executables. You can also build server-side functions for timestamping and online certificate status validation into your applications. SecureBlackbox allows you to use the latest encryption algorithms such as Elliptic Curve Cryptography - a functionality unavailable in other encryption packages.

Available editions:
SecureBlackbox is available in several editions for various software platforms.

  • .NET edition (.NET-based platforms)
  • Java edition (Java and Android)
  • VCL edition (Delphi, C++Builder, FreePascal)
  • C++ edition (use with C++)
  • ActiveX edition (Windows ActiveX technology)

Available Packages:

SecureBlackbox includes a number of components that help you solve various digital security tasks. A package in SecureBlackbox is a group of components, which are used for the one or several similar functions. For example, PKIBlackbox package includes components to work with X.509 certificates, certificate storages etc.

Some packages include one or several other packages. For example, XMLBlackbox includes components for XML security and also includes PGPBlackbox package, which provides components for OpenPGP standard.

There also exist several large packages, each including several individual packages. They are Professional, Standard, Transports and Data Security.
