Subject Re: Digital downloads and security
Date Tue, 17 May 2011 05:03:54 GMT
If you make sure the link can only be accessed by loggedin users, and
the download is linked to an completed order, security should be fine?

works fine. Configuring the product, adding the content, buying, download using the "downloadDigitalProduct"
method works as intended.

So if somebody knows ofbiz he might get access to all downloads by simply guessing the content
ids. There seems be a way using a custom genericContentPermission Service. But to be honest,
for something like digital downloads i would guess there is a standard mechanism like the
one in downloadDigitalProducts which protects this files in general, without writing a custom
permission service. (which i haven't discovered yet) But if its required to write a new one,
are there any suggestions to get this working an efficient way? I'm thinking of checking the
ProductContentType to make sure the digital downloads are not served using the stream. But
that sounds not very efficient to me. And it also leads to some leaks as soon as  the configuration
gets inconsistent. (For some reason the ProductContent is removed, but not the Content and
Resource entity.) Not more secure but although even slower, checking the OrderRoleAndProductContentInfo
to make the user has the permission to get this content, but even than, i have to ensure its
a digital download content. My last idea, adding a custom attribute to the content when creating
(uploading the file) the content. But that feels like a quick fix to me. Therefore i'm open
to any suggestions.
