Security and the Web Thin Client

Security for the Web thin client begins with the following provisions:

Since we distribute the Web thin client via the Internet, it is packaged as a signed Cabinet (CAB) file. This ensures your users that the code is safe. The CAB file contains a compressed version of the control, with information that tells Internet Explorer how to install it.


Although we have built in a number of security features, the Web thin client allows COBOL programs to call library routines, DLLs, and ActiveX controls on target machines. Because we have no control over the programs that are executed by the Web thin client, we cannot fully guarantee that they are safe.
