applet security

  Asked By: Hondo    Date: Oct 07    Category: Java    Views: 531

I have seen some applets that ask for user permission to
do disk access, or get network connections.
I can't access network or files in my applets becuase of
securtiy, I know I can change the privleges for my
JVM but I want others to be able to use the program, how do
I get permissions from the user in applets, a simple
sample would be the best, in addition to perhaps a small
explaination how it works if it is complicated.

Checkout http://www.suitable.com/Doc_CodeSigning.shtml. It has become
the standard reference on code signing. Very good information on
signing for Netscape and IE.

and it worked in the
applet viewer,but not in browser.You now what can I do?Only for
testing purpose,first.(I don't want buy certificates now!)

u can generate your own (untrusted but it works) certificates with java keytool
u must update the keystore database of your pluggin installation. And the last
thing u
have to do , is sgining your applet  jar ve jar signer utility.

Try to search for keytool, jarsigner and keystore.
