    Well, what do you intend to protect, and how? Client-side security is a joke; if you want to restrict access to your files on a server, you'll need some server-side code.

    Hello Alex, thank you for reply. For example: I have a xml document that I don't want any body to change anything. I want to encrypted that file and put the password to limit to access to it. I have do some reading, but does not find any solution. Hopefully some one can help me on this issue. Thanks

    Like Alex Vincent said, you will need server side code to accompish this.

    There is no other good way to do it.

    logictinker: what sort of server-side scripting languages do you have available? That will help me determine where to move this thread.
