Looking for a comparison of security between .Net and Java? Need to know if .Net application is supported in webservers other than IIS?
Here is a good comparison of Java and .Net Security by Denis Piliptchouk –
Another one would be –
.NET Security: Lessons Learned and Missed from Java by Nathanael Paul and David Evans – http://www.cs.virginia.edu/papers/acsac-net-java.pdf .
Now if you intend to run .net application in a webserver in the DMZ, then a webserver that supports .net framework should help. This would help in exposing an existing application to be exposed to the public domain. There are some available such as Mono (http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page ) and NeoKernel (http://www.neokernel.com ).
Here are some helpful links –
Unix.net – http://sourceforge.net/projects/unixnet/
