Introduction to Tizen Extension SDK

  1. Certificate Extension

    Certificate Extension makes it possible for application developers to run Tizen applications on the Samsung Gear according to the certificate policy. Certificate Extension provides new IDE functionalities to request and register certificates.

    To protect the Samsung Gear devices from malware or viruses; Samsung supports an own code signing policy.

    Code signing protects your application from modifications and ensures your ownership during the version upgrade process. It is used in combination with the device information to ensure that your signed application runs only on those devices which you specify. It also ensures that your application cannot be distributed by someone else even if your application package is leaked.

    Getting the Certificate

  2. Wearable Extension

    This SDK contains the Samsung Extension API to provide advanced access to the Samsung device's platform capabilities. In case of the Web Device API, it guarantees backward compatibility for old devices like the Gear 2 and Gear S.
