How To Pass Variables From An Applet To A Webpage(php, Asp) In A Secure Manner?
Posted 04 February 2007 - 11:23 AM
Here is my problem:
I want people to log in using a identification card. This card is connected to the computer by means of a card reader.
I have written a Java applet to read the data from the card. And I have created a test certificate to run it on a webserver.
Now, I have to pass the data (name, birth,...) to the webpage in a secure way.
First of all, how can I do that? I was thinking of using some kind of POST method to a php script, but I don't know how to do that from an applet.
And second, (this more like a logic problem) how can I be sure that the data being send is not tampered with by the user. The card also contains a certificate (public/private key), maybe that can be of any use?
Can anyone be of help for this?

Only thing you can do is send it all encrypted to prevent third parties to view the data.
