Looking for a comparison of security between .Net and Java? Need to know if .Net application is supported in webservers other than IIS?
Here is a good comparison of Java and .Net Security by Denis Piliptchouk –

Another one would be –

Now if you intend to run .net application in a webserver in the DMZ, then a webserver that supports .net framework should help. This would help in exposing an existing application to be exposed to the public domain. There are some available such as Mono (http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page ) and NeoKernel (http://www.neokernel.com ).
Here are some helpful links –

Visual Studio the IDE for ASP.Net comes with built in light version of server which does not require IIS. .Net framework along with some APIs to create worker processes under the web server … Read Morein consideration would allow us to make it possible to host ASP.Net on other servers. But I don’t think any other servers has this as a built-in feature.
