How secure is the information passed between a client and the server of a
non-secure HTTP connection rather than HTTPS connection using Appeon? Does
Appeon perform its own data encryption so that passwords used to connect to
databases and information passed to/from the server database are still
secure? We are using EAServer rather than IIS. Our EAServer is currently
configured to use a TLS profile which is causing a problem for some of our
clients. We are trying to determine whether having them to use the HTTP
access rather than HTTPS with Appeon will expose our data on the Internet.

Hi Ray

All data transferred between Appeon client and Appeon Server
will be dually encrypted. It will first of all be binary
encrypted and then 128-bit encrypted according to our own
encryption arithmetic. So for most Web applications, even
using HTTP protocol is secure. However if your application
has a very high security requirement, HTTPS is preferred
since Data will be transferred with more protection.

Sally Li
