SecureAuth IdP uses JavaScript code in conjunction with Java applets to authenticate end-users on realms with Java workflows. Due to the enhanced security implemented in Java 7u55 and greater, Java displays the Security Warning dialog to alert the end-user of a possible security concern.


There are no known security issues for SecureAuth IdP Java 7u55 applets and greater; thus end-users can click the Allow button to proceed and dismiss the security warning dialog.

To suppress the Security Warning dialog on subsequent SecureAuth IdP sessions, the Do not show this again for this app and website checkbox option should be enabled on this dialog.
