I don't think the complicated handshake method should be used because it doesn't prevent any hackers, just gives the hackers much more work to do.

I looked online and it seems that people are saying that it isn't possible. But then how does games like runescape prevent this?

Is it possible to make the php recognize the applet or only accept request from the same host?

Finally, does Applet to Servlet communication have the same issue? 'Cause It seems that the issues will be the same but perhaps there's something different about servlets than php that allows to close this security gap.

Thank you so much. I had a feeling we could use php but I had trouble finding decent php - java tutorials online. I started testing with php and it seems great.

I've looked on security issues with applet and it being "hackable" (still dont fully understand the processs), but in the link that you've provided, how can we avoid the security issues?

If I'm going to guess the process of "hacking" it, it will be this(correct me if I'm wrong):
1. I think that people can download the java applet and read the codes.
2. They'll learn what the url to the php file is and what parameter that it takes.
3. Make a script (whether it's a php script or something else) that send POST/GET data to the php file with his own score.

If I'm correct with above, than how can we avoid this situation? I'm having difficult thinking of a solution where high scores get sent from the applet to a php file without specifying the php file url and the parameters.

Thanks for responding btw Smiley

I'm new in this community so hello! Smiley

Me and a friend is working on a multiplayer browser game.
I'm in charge of coding the game in Java while my friend is in charge of coding the homepage and forums with php.

Lets say the java applet has a login screen in which the user types in his/her user info and will log in if the authorization is successful.

A lot of sources recommended me to use servlets to do this. I spent a lot of time studying servlets and came up with this:

User types user & pass in java applet and presses enter
Username and encrypted pass goes to servlet while applet listens for response
Servlet compares username and pass with data in database
If matches, servlet retrieves user info (level, xp, skills) from database and sends it back to the applet
applet receives info and do whatever

Unfortunately, since my friend is using php and I require java, there appears to be a conflict. Only way to run java servlets is if I have java/tomcat hosting. I tested this with appfog and cloudbees however it seems that php cant run in tomcat.

So this makes it seem like I have to choose between my friend using jsp(not an option) or I'll have to find an alternative method.

Does anyone have any other methods they would recommend or a solution to the above problem?
