AIR HTML Security Overview
The Adobe® AIR™ HTML
security model is based on developer feedback and an evolving understanding
of the security issues inherent in developing HTML and Ajax applications.
The development of Rich Internet Applications for AIR presents new
challenges because AIR applications provide, unlike Web-based RIAs,
access to the desktop. This means that AIR applications can read
and write files, draw to the screen, communicate with the network,
and so on.
Security is a key concern of Adobe, users, system administrators,
and application developers. For this reason, Adobe AIR includes
a set of security rules and controls to safeguard the user and application
developer. This white paper presents the security considerations
in developing HTML-based AIR applications.
