Hi all,
I have a doubt about applet security.
I'd like to know if classes loaded from a jarfile on a remote source can sometimes be trusted even if the jarfile is unsigned.
I found this question on a j2ee-interest mailing list, but no answer
was mentioned.
Anybody knows ?
Thanks
Francesco

They can, provided you alter the security policy on your local machine. The details can be found here.
