Hi Everyone,
Where can I get some quick info on the pros/cons of using signed applets?
Thanks in advance.

Here is the link that will give you all the info on signing applets :
http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.3/docs/nsobjsigning.html
You might want to consider the negative first - End-users will be required to import the certificate in their jre's keystore to be able to run the signed applet. This is certainly not recommended as certificate installation should be transparent to users (as in server certificates).
Folks, please add your comments. If I am missing something, pls correct.

I'd also suggest taking a look at Sun's Java Tutorial on Security in Java 2 and Security in JDK 1.1. Both trails include information on code signing.
