Developing Logon with Certificate Authentication

Use MAF to develop a logon using Afaria or a third-party X.509 certificate provider.

When the app uses certificate-based authentication, the logon process flow acquires the user's certificate from a certificate provider service and uses that certificate for authentication in further requests.

SAP Mobile Platform provides full support for the SAP-provided solution, Afaria. Beginning with release 3.0 SP03, you can use a custom extension point that allows you to integrate non-Afaria certificate provider options (for example, MobileIron or AirWatch), or file-system installation.
