Secure Electron Adapter (SEA) CONTRIBUTION

The Secure Electron Adapter (SEA) was contributed to FINOS by FINOS member ChartIQ this past week. SEA provides an easy way to secure applications running in Electron - a container for building desktop applications with web technology - making its use appropriate for financial institutions. It acts as a firewall, intermediating API calls within a permission structure that mitigates the risk of running third party content in a desktop container.
