Security inside the Firewall?

Hi all,

I am working on part two of the SCEA.

I am assuming that all the servers in FBNs network will be within a Firewall.

Performance is one of the key requirements that we need to meet so to keep things as quick as possible I'd like to use secure/encrypted communicated between servers only where needed.

Can we assume that traffic sent between servers inside the firewall (i.e. between E450s and E10,000 server) will be safe and extra security is not needed?

I'm not that familar with all the possible attacks that could happen to a J2EE system so any comments would be welcome!

Thanks,
Ian

As specified in the JavaRanch SCEA FAQ:
For questions / discussions on the assignment, in general we will allow discussion where members are trying to understand the domain model and/or terms used in the assignment. We will also allow questions about which tools to use.

But we will not allow discussion on a solution to the assignment (or a part of the assignment) itself.
This topic has therefore been closed, and the answer removed.

Regards, Andrew
