Nice.

Security is hard. And requires keeping up with the literature, as they say. I’m somewhat out of the loop at this point and there are many concerns; easy-ish first ones include–

  • Only HTTPS with modern ciphers.
  • Never put meaningful or replayable info in cookies.
  • Never echo untrusted content to the browser.
  • Never store plaintext passwords.
  • Always serve all content locally or with checksums if remote.
  • Only give lowest permission absolutely necessary to do anything.
  • Log everything to find attacks you forgot to cover.

The gold standard for guidelines is OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project).
