Hi Everyone,

I have a query here. I need to build a server - client application which should be based on jnlp. I want to know if it is secure as SSH or less.


Thanks
Pawan

Depends on where you want your security.

You can create an app that uses SSL/TLS to talk to the server. That's just an ordinary network app using secure transport and JNLP doesn't factor into it. You can digitally sign the app to frustrate tampering. You can run JNLP over a secured, encrypted web page to limit who can download the app.
