AR# 8739: 3.1i Solaris Install - Java Security Issues
3.1i Solaris Install - Java Security Issues
Keywords: Java, security, install, 3.1i, Solaris
General Description: Some customers are concerned about the Java Security window that appears during the 3.1i Install.
However, because the primary purpose of an installer is to deliver files to the disc, it is required that the Java Security Window be granted access for the install to successfully complete. By granting this access, the user is only allowing the files that are on the Xilinx CD to be copied to the users disc. Web access is not required, as Xilinx does not read any information off of the user's disc.
Additionally, Xilinx has securited a digital certificate from Verisign. This is a way to guarantee that the information you receive is indeed from Xilinx. For further information about Java, please see (http://java.sun.com/). For further information about the Verisign company, please see (http://www.verisign.com/).
For users that would still rather not use the browser environment, an install 'patch' has been created. For further information on this, please see (Xilinx Solution 8214).
