PROTECTION FROM COOKIE THEFTS
Assigning authentication cookies with HttpOnly attributes and binding them to the portal user’s IP address allows for preventing any unauthorized access.
ACCESS RIGHTS RESTRICTION
To prevent possible data leaks only a user can change his/her password and only a portal owner has rights to back up the data as well as to set permissions to users for certain modules and operations they can perform.
