Vipaka - Security Guide


Vipaka has been designed with security in mind, from both the OS perspective and the database perspective. If you find any security related problems or bugs, please open a bug report on our sourceforge page

Database Security

The associated scripts in the ``sql'' directory provide a way to easily create a user for running vipaka. Notice that the user is created with ``SELECT ANY TABLE'' privilages. This will prevent vipaka from being able to modify anything in your database. Though it does not make any such attempt, this provides peace of mind.

OS Level Security

The html pages which are ultimately loaded into a browser are prebuilt, and static for each iteration until vipaka wakes up again, and refreshes them.
