Hide Client Script

08-16-2002, 03:28 PM

When I use VBScript on the client side, can I hide the script so that it doesn't show in the browser View/Source?

No, sorry. You could put it in a separate file, but even then someone
would be able to view it by just downloading that file.

My issue is that my customer has a 'static' web site. He is ftp-ing .pdf files for his customers to view and giving them unique names so his customers can't view each others reports.

I would like to put a login screen on the front end...

Any protection should be done server side - client side would be too easy to hack round. Look into using ASP with server side VBS.. that way, you can have a couple of input boxes which are linked to an ASP page. The ASP page (Using VBS) checks a server side DB for the username and pass, then logs the user in (or out).

I'd love to do that. If my client had an ISP that would allow ASP, then it would be a no-brainer. Unfortunately, the web site is static (no server side anything).

Any other ideas?

Does the webserver supports passworded directories?
If so you could create a subdir for every client with it's own password. The webserver would take care of the rest

I don't know. I'll inquire...

One way is to use Script Encoding tool by Microsoft. Which is free of charge.
It works by passing asp files through this encoder and the text within
<script language= "vbscript">

and server side text within the

<% %>

will be jumbled up. Hence, people cannot just steal your codes.

But it isnt 100% secure. The encoding algo can be cracked by experienced coders.
