Securely Retrieving Email from GMail using Java POP Library

Posted by Charles Ott on Wed, Dec 21, 2011 @ 09:46 AM

Using JSCAPE's Secure iNet Factory library, it's not hard to retrieve your email easily and with complete security from GMail, Hotmail or other servers that require APOP authentication, and we'll show you how in this article. On the other hand, how does your hand-addressed Christmas card get all the way across America to your Aunt Petunia's house, traveling over purple mountain majesties and across fruited plains, carried by trains and airplanes and, for Pete's sake, by a friendly mail person who walks it down the street? This process is a complete mystery and some scientist should investigate it!

So let's say you have developed a marvelous herbal supplement that will help men grow larger ears, and you need to share this discovery with the world (or at least, that part of the world that is willing to send you $12.95 for your special mix of grass clippings from your backyard). You can use SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) to route your message through the Internet, and the Secure iNet Factory library to help you write a Java program to do this.

Secure File Transfer with Java SCP Library

Posted by Charles Ott on Thu, Dec 15, 2011 @ 11:57 AM

SCP is another old SSH (Secure Shell) file-transfer protocol — it can be traced back to the rcp command that was added to BSD Unix in 1982, which makes it the same age as ET The Extraterrestrial. It may have been the protocol ET used to communicate with his mothership. If he had had JSCAPE's Secure FTP Factory library, things might have gone more easily.

Leaked Draft of EU Data Protection Regulations - The Need for Managed File Transfer and DLP Solutions

Posted by John V. on Wed, Dec 14, 2011 @ 08:22 AM

Haven't yet found any compelling reason to deploy data security solutions like managed file transfer (MFT) and data loss prevention (DLP)? Looks like the European Union is about to give you one. If provisions in the leaked draft of the regulation for the new European Data Protection Directive get carried over into the final form of the law, EU companies as well as global companies who operate in EU-member states will have to improve IT security in order to comply with the regulation or risk incurring heavy penalties.

Secure File Transfer with Java SFTP Library

Posted by Charles Ott on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 @ 03:58 PM

If you're a programmer, you've already learned dozens of TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms). If a phrase has four words, of course, we don't call the acronym an "FLA" because any civilian could understand that. We call it an ETLA (Extended Three Letter Acronym)! In the previous article, you saw how to use JSCAPE's Secure FTP Factory to safely transmit files using the fine ETLA FTPS. This time, we'll show you an even better way to transmit file safely using the even cooler ETLA SFTP. Being able to remember things like this is the mark of a professional programmer.

Transferring Files with Java FTP Library

Posted by Charles Ott on Wed, Dec 07, 2011 @ 02:51 PM

Here's some philosophy to go with the Secure FTP Factory library. There are some things in life that you should never do unless you feel completely secure. One of them is withdrawing money from an ATM.  You should do this only in a safe, well lit and preferably high traffic environment where you are unlikely to be robbed. Another is uploading or downloading files using plain FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
