Dartmouth-Hitchcock Financial Fitness Program
Java Calculator Security
Taken in part from KJE Computer Solutions, LLC Website

Please note that in addition to the Java calculators, we now provide new calculators which use JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS to display and run the calculators. There is no longer a requirement for the Java-Plugin on those calculators. These new calculators allow you to use them everywhere you have a browser. Phones, tablets, touch pads, desktops, laptops, just about everywhere!

The Java versions created by KJE Computer Solutions, LLC are compatible with all major browsers version 4.0 and higher. The memory and hardware security inherent in any version of the Java platform in these browsers does not allow an applet direct access to the client's computer hard drive, memory, printer or any other attached device. This is far more secure than any ActiveX, Visual Basic or other browser plug-in that can access your local computer's hardware directly, without your consent.

Further, no Java applet is able to access any remote server other than the one that the applet was launched from. Since the Java applets reside on your company's own web server, there is no risk of the applet inappropriately accessing other servers and compromising system security.

In addition, the security to your visitors is enhanced by not having any of their sensitive data sent over the internet. All information entered into one of our Retirement Calculator Applets is processed on by your visitor's browser. The applet will not send any inputted data back over the internet to be possibly intercepted or misused.

This combination of secure hardware and safeguarded visitor information provides for a very secure and stable content.
