    DCOM - Concern abt Security


    Hi Guru

    Is the data that was returned back to my PC when I invoke a method in another
    PC - in plain text?

    Say for example, I have a method in another PC that I called from my PC.
    That method from another PC returns some data. Question is - is the returned
    data in plain text? If it is, I suppose it is easy for someone to see what's
    the result is using packet sniffing or the like? If this is true, how can
    I then make sure that the data being sent across through DCOM not easily
    being hijacked or hacked if I may say so?

    I also appreciate that a copy of the answer be CC to md-saifulamri_omar@hp.com


    rgds,
    Saiful

    AFAIK, this is some setting in the configuration of DCOM. It allows you
    to encrypt the marshalled data.
