Security

Good security is not a one-trick donkey, but a combination of factors. Here is what we implemented:

  • We use Open Standards wherever appropriate. Standards enjoy more scrutiny from more eyeballs
  • The vert.x Framework supports all flavours of SSL certificates
  • All endpoints, short of login and OData, require a signed JWT claim
  • We support public/private keys for identity provider setup
  • Databases are not automatically exposed on REST, when you run KEEP. Only the ones that are configured by the admins
  • No anonymous access is granted for REST data
  • Access to sensitive information can be limited to servers that present additional credentials
  • Read/Write access is controlled on a per form, field and user basis. See The Barbican for details
