I have a flash app that accesses .xml files.
The source is viewable and some creative crackers have figured out how to
meld a url together to get vital information from those .xml's.
I need to prevent the web client from directly accessing them.
Is there a directive (such as Apache's) or mechnisim to keep web clients
from accessing yet allow my app access these files?
Allow from <some file name>
Deny from all
<some other web trick>
in zope.conf or ???
Zopes security is based on being authenticated, so no. What you can do
it let the Flash app login as a special user, and make the files only
accessible to that user. To prevent people from sneaking the password
from the IP-traffic, you also need to use SSL from the Flash app.
