Hi,
I have verisign certificate for my server and running a secure site through https. Can I use this certificate to run my appletas which can access users info?
or do I still have to sign my applet?
regards,
Arun

You still have to sign. HTTPS ensures the privacy of the channel between client and server, but signing ensures that someone didn't find a back door into the server and replace the original applet with something bad.
