I am not sure what forum I should have posted this on so if you know let me
know for next time.
I have been researching corba and corba security as a hobbie recently. Corba
security seems to be solid from the omg corba security services 1.8 manual (only
got through half of that spec so far).
does corba have any security flaws that could be improved or are worth a research
there must be ways to upset corba security services either intentionaly or unintentionaly.
it seems to be heavily governed on policies. is the a vulnerability here?
what about other middleware technologies such as ejb? are there security issues
or do security issues arise when using both ejb and corba together?
any information relating to corba security is welcomed. the omg specification
wont highlight any existing security exploits for obvious reasons.
I done a google seearch for "corba security vulnerabilites" but no security
problems were returned.
