Page/Swap File and in-memory security considerations
I'm developing a client/server solution based on the cajo framework (Which uses RMI).
My java client will be receiving hashmaps from the server, which will contain confidential information. The results can be large and I've seen the JVM process memory size in windows task manager raise by 10 - 20MB (There's a lot of data!).
Should I be concerned about the way windows deals with virtual memory/paging on the client machine? Or am I just being overly paranoid? Would this potential paging issue also happen in applications that are web based?
Any advice is very much appreciated.
