Using cross-domain policy files

To make data available to SWF files in different domains, use a cross-domain policy file. A cross-domain policy file is an XML file that provides a way for the server to indicate that its data and documents are available to SWF files served from other domains. Any SWF file that is served from a domain that the server's policy file specifies is permitted to access data or assets from that server.

When a Flash document attempts to access data from another domain, Flash Player attempts to load a policy file from that domain. If the domain of the Flash document that is attempting to access the data is included in the policy file, the data is automatically accessible.
