Protected IE sessions.

Protected IE sessions.

We have IE 5.5 and are running an Oracle app using JVM.

We are having problems when users click shortcuts or links. Our app is being hit.

We know we can change the browser behavior and have all link clicks fire a new browser session, but are concerned about resource use.

We'd like to know if we can run this app in a protected session that won't take outside clicks.

10 points for a cookbook to tell us how, if its possible. We'll need details.

Pman.

Re: Protected IE sessions.

Shalom,

What I believe you want is to secure your web app so that users must first login in order to access the pages?

What people usually do is to issue a session token after they authenticate the user, then check for this token on each page request. If the token exists, then you let them in. Otherwise, redirect to the login page.

How you implement this scheme depends on design issues.

Hope this helps point you in the proper direction.
If if ain't broke, don't fix it.

Re: Protected IE sessions.

The app is a secure oracle application.

The problem at hand is that when users open this app, which runs in an IE 5.5 session, and then switch to click a desktop icon or an email link, they clobber the IE 5.5 app. We want to modify the browser launch to not accept "click" input if possible.

When the browser gets clobbered sometimes the oracle app gets confused and won't let the user log back in.

What?
change browser to not open in new window.
Have you thought of or is it possible to point there ie icons(shotcuts) to a Kiosk mode of ie --that way they'd have to close to open anything else.
Here is some links.

But beware ie5.5 has issues with Kioskmode.

Do a search at ms kb for any products for Kiosk mode with max results (more info)

Please let my now if im way of the mark here.
Im just a lurker>
