Chapter 17. Understanding Security

Chapter 17. Understanding Security

In Macromedia Flash Basic 8 and Macromedia Flash Professional 8, you can use ActionScript to load data from external sources into a SWF file or send data to a server. When you load data into a SWF file, you need to understand and accommodate the Flash 8 security model. When you open a SWF file on your hard disk, you might need to make special configurations so you can test your file locally.

For information on local file security, see “About local file security and Flash Player” on page 693. For information on the changes between the Flash Player 7 and Flash Player 8 security model, see “About compatibility with previous Flash Player security models” on page 691. For information on how to load and parse data from a server, read Chapter 16, “Working with External Data,” on page 647. For more information on security, see www.macromedia.com/devnet/security and www.macromedia.com/software/flashplayer/security/.
