In this paper, we will introduce a new kind of server, called the Smart Data Server (SDS). It acts as the middle-tier in a three-tier architecture (Applet-SDS-Database). It allows the building of lean clients by shifting functionality to the SDS. It offers a frame for easy-to-build environment-independent modules with multiple functionality. By building of SDS-networks, secure communication is made possible.
