Security Features

Ensuring the security of the Samna system is paramount. This section outlines the various security features implemented to protect user data, ensure secure communication, and maintain the integrity of the system.

Authentication and Authorization

User Authentication:
OAuth 2.0: Samna uses OAuth 2.0 for secure user authentication. This industry-standard protocol ensures that user credentials are protected and reduces the risk of unauthorized access.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Users can enable MFA for an additional layer of security. This requires a second form of verification (e.g., a code sent to their phone) in addition to their password.
Role-Based Access Control (RBAC):
Granular Permissions: Access to various features and data within Samna is controlled through RBAC, which assigns permissions based on user roles (e.g., Admin, User, Viewer).
Least Privilege Principle: Users are granted the minimum level of access necessary to perform their tasks, reducing the risk of unauthorized actions.

Secure Communication

API Security:
Token-Based Authentication: API requests are authenticated using tokens. Each request must include a valid token, ensuring that only authorized applications can interact with the backend services.
Rate Limiting: API endpoints are protected by rate limiting to prevent abuse and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
Secure Websockets:
Websockets used for real-time updates (e.g., room status changes) are secured with TLS to ensure that the communication channel is protected against eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks.

Monitoring and Logging

Security Audits:
Regular security audits are conducted to identify and address vulnerabilities. These audits include code reviews, penetration testing, and compliance checks.
Audit logs are maintained to track access and changes to critical systems, ensuring accountability and traceability.
Intrusion Detection and Prevention:
Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS): Implemented to monitor network traffic for suspicious activity and potential threats.
Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS): Automatically block or mitigate detected threats to prevent security breaches.

Compliance and Best Practices

Samna adheres to relevant industry standards and regulations, such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) for data protection and privacy.
Norway’s data privacy laws provide an additional layer of protection, ensuring that data handling practices meet the highest standards.
Regular reviews are conducted to ensure ongoing compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
Best Practices:
Secure Development Lifecycle (SDLC): Security is integrated into every phase of the development lifecycle, from design to deployment. This includes threat modeling, secure coding practices, and security testing.
Employee Training: Regular training sessions are conducted for employees to keep them informed about the latest security threats and best practices.
By implementing these security features and leveraging Norway’s robust data privacy laws, Samna ensures that user data is protected, communications are secure, and the system remains resilient against potential threats.
