Re: Best advice for developing back end server for app

That's an incomplete statement though. What parts of the systems do they think is ok to transfer using just SSL? How many of those systems have actually been audited? We know from history that bank software has been a lot more insecure than they like to say. But then again, SSL and RESTful is just *...

Re: Best advice for developing back end server for app

Preferably you'd use a dynamic key that's set when you connect, that way if someone hacks the software, it won't help them to get access to any data. It's also important to protect the server from hacking attempts, for example if the connecting software does not follow a certain criteria, or connect...

Re: Best advice for developing back end server for app

I hate being the bringer of bad news, but if you're that new to programming, making a secure networking app is not your best shot, unless you can get an experienced programmer to guide you the whole way. About sockets: http://compnetworking.about.com/od/itinformationtechnology/l/aa083100a.htm VPS (T...

Re: Best advice for developing back end server for app

Thinking in the terms of the last poster, let's keep it LiveCode! LC can create Linux binaries, so your best bet would be to get a VPS (Virtual Private Server) and create an LC based server back-end! Use sockets and encrypt everything, hash passwords and include hacking-detection/counters. Doing it ...

Re: Best advice for developing back end server for app

Any answer you get will be deeply colored by the posters personal preferences. There's no "best" language to use. And here's my answer: I'm a ColdFusion CFML developer, and I've used those skills to create a server back-end using sockets to talk to my LC apps. CFML comes with sockets built in, and i...

Re: Open Source Code Archive

Don't tell me, tell that to RevRun :P
I suggested making an OSS archive because I didn't think there was one. Turns out there is, but no one knows how to use it. lol

Re: socketdata and if?

Ah but see if I strip the characters regardless, it won't matter what format the server sends (What platform it's running on)

Re: socketdata and if?

Yes, the testserver is a local server running on my dev-laptop, Windows 7.
I figured it was lf/cr, but not sure how to strip those characters through regex, or compare including them.

When finished it'll run on a linux server.

Re: socketdata and if?

I considered using if contains, but it's going to be expanded to handle messaging later on, and if a user then places login_accepted (Or any of the other keywords) into a message, it will cause problems. I'm going to implement a multi-stage process to make it sturdy as well as secure though, so I mi...

Re: socketdata and if?

Ok, I've figured out a workaround for now, until I can figure out what's going on.
I'm using replaceText with regex to simply strip non-alphanumeric characters and comparing the resulting string.

Open Source Code Archive

Here's a suggestion. Since the Community Edition of LiveCode is Open Source and forces the users to release their code Open Source, why not create an archive of LiveCode based Open Source software? It could have everything from snippets and blocks of code to full-fledged software in one easy-to-use ...
