Hi there,

Can someone provide me with a good link on current Applet security details?

I have seen some mock exams Q's which refer to policies, and how these can be usd to get around the standard applet contraints.

I'm just a little confused as things seen to have changed a bit since I last read up on this stuff.

Thanks in advance,
