Preventing copy and paste in Citrix

Hi

We are running Citrix PS 4.5 on Windows 2003 Servers.

We publish apps in the traditional manner (i.e. the app runs on a server which the users connect to via an ICA client) and also "stream to client".

I had some questions:

1. I know there is 'stream to server', 'stream to client' - but what is the name for the traditional manner I mention above?

2. For both methods, I want to disable the ability to copy and paste data from the Citrix client to any other application running on the client, is this possible?

3. For both methods, is it possible to run the Citrix published app in a secure isolation box, such that no other app can interfere with it? The reason I ask is that we are thinking of publishing some financial applications via Citrix, and don't want any other application running on the client to be able to interface with the financial apps that are running.

Hope someone can help

1.  Hosted Apps

2.  Yes.  One way is to disable client clipboard mapping in a Citrix policy.  Another is to disable on the ICA-TCP Listener.

3.  Yes.  One way is to give each app a slightly different setting so they can't use session sharing but that wastes resource on the server.  The other is to publish apps on different servers (app silo) so the sessions are on different servers.

Thanks Carl..

Sorry for #3, I meant between financial apps we publish via Citrix (which users can access on their home PC via the Web Interface), and interaction with any clients locally installed on their home PC's

I should have been clearer

I don't see how an app on a client device will interfere with an app running on a server unless the apps have a programatic way of interconnecting.

Sure, but with 'stream to client' isn't the app actually running on the client itself?

Yes but in an isolated environment.  Same for stream to server.  App is streamed to server but runs in an isolation environment.  Not all apps can be streamed.
