SUPERIOR, Colo. -- StillSecure®, creator of secure network infrastructure software, today announced the Cobia Software Developers Kit (SDK). Unlike proprietary network infrastructure solutions, StillSecure has created the first truly open network infrastructure platform with Cobia and its SDK. Developers and ISVs can now build upon open, standards-based networking and security software components. The entire Cobia community is helping to usher in a new era in networking by utilizing the power of open source software based on off-the-shelf hardware.
Through Cobias open, modular architecture we are hoping to foster innovation and fundamentally change the way that people implement networking and security applications, said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer at StillSecure. The Cobia SDK means developers have well-defined programming interfaces as well as the support resources needed to develop new, innovative applications that operate on Cobia.
The Cobia SDK allows third parties to quickly, easily, and inexpensively develop modules that extend the benefit of the Cobia platform. It combines the flexibility of open source Cobia software with the power and productivity of well-developed APIs and other developer resources. Full documentation and detailed examples for building both the front-end user interface and back-end components enable even novice developers to take advantage of the power and flexibility available in the Cobia platform.
The Cobia SDK provides an excellent environment for building integrated modules on the Cobia platform. By offering a framework for module inter-activity, there are a vast number of exciting development possibilities, said Perryn Gordon, independent software developer. It's great to be part of a community that's rallying behind such an innovative product that will change how networking and security is managed as we know it today.
