I have a remoting application which uses a binary formatter over tcp, this isn't hosted within IIS, but within my own application server.
I am releasing the application to a client who want to connect over the web.
I'm a little concerned about security, i.e. can someone hack the application by using the open port ?? or is there some kind of handshaking between legitimate clients trying to connect.
Ideally, I'd like to encrypt the data being sent. We have an SSL certificate, is there any way this can be used to encrypt the data.
I've done some web-searches, but can only find info on using SSL when hosted within IIS, which isn't an option.
