ClickOnce apps are typically distributed via HTTP (you download the code
from a web site) but it doesn't necessarily execute via HTTP. It runs
locally. You can deploy these on SSL endpoints if you wish.

We have a consultant requesting to utilize ClickOnce and configure things
in that direction for client updates and was wondering how safe it is as
we're unfamiliar with this technology. You mention it executes via HTTP
in that would it be able to do it through HTTPS for higher sensitive
apps/updates? Thanks Joe.

ClickOnce is primarily a technology for deploying apps that execute on
the desktop, typically via an HTTP-based distro point. It is not
generally about building ASP.NET apps although you can write ClickOnce
apps that interact with it.

Silverlight is getting a lot more attention these days as a client-side
executable framework though.

What are you trying to do?

Hello, sorry if this is wrong area and novice question so is ClickOnce
mainly for deploying asp.net apps and would anyone know of or can
mention any security risks when using Windows Authentication? Thanks
in advance.
