    Hi,

    Well, I'm looking for advice about how to implement secure communication between an android client who connects to a WCF server over BasicHttpBinding using HttpJob.

    I've thought using the same "super secret long password" on both sides to crypt and decrypt, but since I don't know if that password would be decompilers-proof with b4a obfuscation, or maybe there is a more secure or best-practised way.

    Thank you very much!

    The simplest way is to use a ssl connection and let it handle the encryption for you.

    Hi Erel,

    Thank you for your answer.

    So, using a SSL connection is a server issue, I should implement SSL on the server, the android client will be the same (except for the "https" part), right?

    Thank you!

    Yes. That is correct. Note that you are posting from the wrong user account.
