The application must be able to link up with the RIT LDAP system in order for users to properly log in and be identified. This information must be kept secure. During voting, users should not see the groups or other people’s votes in order to avoid being influenced by other people’s decisions, and this will need to be kept secure.
There are 2 different types of sessions. The session can either be open to the public and anyone can contribute by navigating to the open session page. The other option is the secure session, which is closed to the public, and only open to users who have a DCE account with RIT.
All user input shall be cleaned to prevent security issues. This will ensure any malicious entries will not harm the system.
