CORBA34 — Issue for Firewall RTF - HTTP tunnelling.

  • Key: CORBA34-353
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2455
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: The submission makes no mention of HTTP tunnelling. There are many
    firewalls which filter HTTP, FTP and email related traffic. Is the
    omission based on the assumption that such firewalls will comprise
    a CORBA conformant GIOP proxy on a well-known IIOP port? The Bi-
    directional GIOP specification suggests not (section 5-1,
    paragraph 2).

    Is tunnelling regarded as an implementation matter? If so there
    will be important issues such as relaxing GIOP/HTTP mapping and
    security which the specification should clarify.
