Challenges

To ensure REST API security

Ensuring security was one of the greatest challenges here as it was a digital wallet solution. We have to make sure that all the functionalities of the solution are 100% percent secure. For this securing REST API was a huge challenge since most of the solution provide REST API without any encryption.

Assure Android app security

It was very important to ensure the security of the Android app’s code as anyone can obtain the code by applying reverse engineering if it’s devoid of any kind of protection or security. Apart from that, the application also stores basic details like username, password, etc. So, it was important to secure these data too.

To achieve quick response time

We wanted to achieve quick response time for the application as we didn’t want any user to wait for a longer time and get frustrated.

Establish 100% server availability

We wanted to achieve 100% server availability so that the client can introduce new updates without facing any downtime. Similarly, we wanted to ensure that the application’s server doesn’t face downtime when there’s a sudden surge in the number of users in a short period.

Solutions

Provided digital signature with each request

To achieve the REST API security, we encrypted all payload data of each API calls. Moreover, we also provided digital signature with each request.

Applied secure preferences and Pro-Guard rules

To ensure app’s code security we used Pro-guard rules. Moreover, to ensure the security of the saved data like Username, password, etc, we used secure preferences.

Optimized each query and cache databases

To ensure that the user doesn’t have to wait long we achieved quick response time by optimizing each and every query and cache databases.

Employed auto-scaling policy and framed rules

We ensured 100% server availability by employing load balancing, auto-scaling policies, and framed rules.
