I'm working on developing an application that will start on a PHP server. I want to pass encrypted url parameters to a J2ee server of a partner that will provide content. Is this possible or the best way to achieve this?
The parameters can be sent in an encrypted format.
First you need to check against whom you are trying to protect your data, depending on this you will have to use a suitable encryption methodology. You also need to see if your third party supports that. So this has to be a mutual decision.
Also do you want the response from the server(third party) in an encrypted format ? If yes check if they support such cause.
Also before doing encryption on your part check if you can be happy with using a secured protocol, if yes then once again check if your third party allows you to communicate using secured protocol.
Hope this helps.
