Browser Enabled InfoPath Forms over SSL

  Asked By: Traci    Date: Aug 04    Category: MOSS    Views: 1319

We have an internet facing WCM site developed in MOSS. We also have
several centrally administered browser enabled forms as part of that
site. The forms are exposed to the user via the XmlFormView
webpart. The business requirements have changed and the forms must
now use SSL.

Is there a way to require SSL on the forms without requiring SSL on
the entire site? We're trying to meet this late breaking
requirement without a major overhaul.

Some of the options we've considered:

Creating a separate web application running SSL to host the forms,
and send the user to that site to complete forms. This falls into
the major overhaul category.
Keeping the forms where they are and adding a hidden web part the
the pages that host the forms. The hidden webpart would redirect to
https if https is not in the current url.
Any thoughts or guidance on requiring SSL on internet facing browser
enabled forms and anonymous access?

You will need to hidden  WebPart on all pages  (probably a server control
on the Master Page) that determines when to switch to HTTPS and when to
switch back to HTTP. The alternative is to generate links to the forms
using HTTPS so when the user  clicks to create them, they get the
resulting page via SSL.
