This is a guide to use the T1C-Js client for the T1C-GCL (Generic Connector Library).
Trust1Connector is a product of Trust1Team in order to facilitate browser independent hardware communication from a web application with an unmanaged device.
The web application serves as a mediator in order to implement business flows. A web application stays in control for service requests towards a central back-end, and service requests with an unmanaged device.
The Trust1Connector consists of:
- T1C-GCL (Generic Connector Library): an one-time installer for OSX, Windows, Linux
- T1C-DS (Distribution Service for T1C-GCL): a secured back-end in order to distribute and manage running T1C-GCL instances
Additional plugins (community and private plugins) are in development.
Additional client libraries for native applications are in development.
