Security Considerations

Standards Lab allows users to upload arbitrary data and schema to the specified file system and run a process on that data.


When thinking about the security implications, consider mitigations such as:

  • Adding HTTP authentication to restrict access to trusted users

  • Adding an SSL certificate to the server so that data is transmitted more securely

  • Using Standards Lab as a local application that is only available to the localhost

  • Isolating any deployment by using containers and virtualisation

  • Making sure users understand not to upload any data that may be private
