Protecting data against malicious users
Regardless of how well a system is maintained, 0-day exploits do exist and require additional security measures to protect against security breaches.
For that reason, Orbit Online reduces Orbit’s attack surfaces by requiring a user to be logged in before being able to send requests to any supporting services.
To protect against malicious users, and attacks on the public-facing services, Orbit Online compartmentalised most of the code in Orbit. This ensures that a breach in one part of the system does not allow the attacker to fan out into the rest of the system unopposed.
