Master Key published!

leave a comment »

While I’ve not blogged the event in a timely manner my app Master Key was published on 10th May a couple of days after I submitted it.  I’m pretty pleased with this!

I’ve used the app since it was in early development and am now working on V2.0 based on my own user feedback which I hope to upload over the next week or so.  I’ve extended the functionality now beyond simply having the password associated with a caption to include an identity and some additional notes.

I’m up to 20 different entries now, it’s really come as quite a surprise as to how many different identities I have and it’s really great having all the info in one secure place.

As I have blogged previously the phone can easily connect to a web service.  I’ve used this approach to provide a backup and restore facility for the Master Key vault.  As the service is provided as an HTTP endpoint it can run anywhere the phone can access.

When the phone is attached by it’s cable to a PC it has access to the Ethernet the PC is connected to as as the HTTP endpoint can be easily exposed on the network it becomes quite simple to make a connection without having to have any complex security or exposure to the wider internet.
