What about network security?

It is possible to secure socket layers at all fronts - with clients, browsers, applications, databases and even LDAP access. logFaces server acts as server and client in the context of SSL simultaneously. It acts as a server when it accepts connections from clients and applications, and it also acts as a client to other services it uses like your database, LDAP service, etc. To secure these network layers, logFaces must be able to verify (and present) certificates to its peers. This is done by introducing SSL certificates into logFaces server JVM. Note that you can apply full or partial network security. For example, you may secure the front end or the application layers, but leave connection to database non-secure, it all depends on the setup you are trying to achieve.

Please refer to Server Administration part in user manual for more details.
