I'm doing a project where I need to use components on a server, and use RPC calls one them. I'm most familiar with MS programming languages, like VB, VC++ and ASP, so those are mainly the tools I've been using. Lately I've tried using SOAP, and I think that's kinda exciting. The transmission needs to be secure, so I've thought of using SSL with the SOAP-solution.

But I need to look into more solutions. I've thought of using Java (as I know a little) with CORBA, because it includes some security functions. Perhaps look into the bussiness objects, but that's totally unexplored ground for me....

Anyone got input on this one? Programming secure transmission is hot these days. I'm sure some of you programmers (wizards?) have viewpoints!

Thanks in advance
