Description: Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) is a cross-operating-system runtime that enables developers to use Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), JavaScript, Adobe Flash Professional, and ActionScript to build web applications that run as standalone client applications without the constraints of a browser. The runtime supports installable applications on Windows, macOS, and mobile operating systems including Android, iOS, and BlackBerry Tablet OS. Additionally, AIR is a key component of the Adobe Flash Platform.

AIR enables applications to work with data in different ways, including using local files, local SQLite (Structured Query Language) databases (for which AIR has built-in support), a database server, or the encrypted local store included with AIR. The encrypted local store uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) - Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) 128-bit encryption.

As of December 2020 Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) will no longer be supported by Adobe, however it will still be available for purchase from Harman.
