Trust1Connector

Introduction

This is a guide to use the T1C-Js client for the T1C-GCL (Generic Connector Library). Trust1Connector is a product of Trust1Team in order to facilitate browser independent hardware communication from a web application with a device. The Trust1Connector guarantees a secured communication channel from a remote device, through your application until your backend services. The web application serves as a mediator in order to implement business flows. A web application stays in control for service requests towards a central back-end, and service requests with a remote device. The Trust1Connector consists of:

  • T1C-GCL (Generic Connector Library): an one-time installer for OSX, Windows, Linux

  • T1C-DS (Distribution Service for T1C-GCL): an optional secured back-end in order to distribute and manage running T1C-GCL instances

  • T1C-JS (JavaScript SDK): an optional JavaScript client library in order to facilitate the communication towards T1C-GCL and T1C-DS

  • T1C-lib-Java (Java SDK): an optional Java client library in order to facilitate the communication towards the T1C-GCL and T1C-DS

Both community and private containers can be deployed remotely without the need to re-install on the customer side.
