Data upload/transfer with HTTPS
I have a website that retrieves info from an Access db.
Another site wishes to upload data to my database for use on my site. They say they can/will do this via HTTPS.
I have no idea what I would need to do my end. Are there any implications? How exactly does it work?
I want to know a little more before I speak to them (so I don't sound completely dumb).
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
First of all your server needs to suport SSL and you need a cert.
How it works
To say you're going to "upload via HTTPS" isn't really saying much at all. Ask them if what they mean is they want to do RFC 1867 form-based uploads over SSL. If so then you have to bring up a secure server like lakers01 indicated and you'll have to implement (a.k.a. steal) a multipart/form-data parser. These are readily available for just about any server side technology you might have in place; I'm assuming that's ASP on IIS judging from your data store.
