Smart desktop technology is changing the way we work, but bringing web technology to the desktop creates security issues that must be mitigated. In this white paper, ChartIQ CTO Terry Thorsen discusses how the architecture of desktop interoperability involves:

  • Protecting the operating system
  • Protecting applications from each other
  • Enabling interoperability and (when needed) providing access to desktop APIs
  • Securing Electron

Learn about the steps we took to secure our smart desktop platform, Finsemble, and highlight the use of our Secure Electron Adapter (now available as a FINOS open source project).
