My client has a need to develop a package to provide the usual server log on facilities.
The user will key in user id and password to a swing dialog box, then a public key is obtained from the authentication server using RMI. With this key a symetric key is then sent to the server using the PK in order to establish a secure session.
Does anyone have samples of such code that we could graft onto?
Also could we not use SSL and save mucho time on the basics?
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
