Does anyone know a minimally painful method to send a primary key from one application to another and submit it in a form to the second application?
I have two separate applications. I feed the second application a primary key to generate PDF certificates on the fly with database driven data. The first application contains a hard-coded hyperlink + the primary key (cPk), to connect to the second application. Ultimately, the second application is a PDF generator, and the first application contains customized employee information (HR address, phone, dept stuff).
The hard-coded hyperlink looked something like this:
Due to security reasons (namely, the semblance of greater security with suppressed primary keys and the rigorous prevention of random certificate generation) we'd like to hide the cPk, yet still funnel over the cPk value from the first application to the second.
Any advice and or assistance would be greatly appreciated!
