Data encryption & lock down
Posted: May 6, 2009 12:52 PM

I have been using opinio for elections for five years and have always run against the criticism that the system administrator can potentially access intermediate results and thus in theory misuse these to influence the remainder of the voting. Would it be possible to provide a function to prevent access to reporting (including report plugins) or survey locks (e.g. to temporarily change the end date to get round this!) for all users including admin from the time of activating it until the survey end date?

In addition to this, ideally even the root user of the system shouldn't be able to get at the data via direct calls in the mysql backend. Not sure how to solve that one without a major opinio rewrite to encrypt/decrypt the response data tables. Any ideas anyone?

should be possible with a plugin, but it would take some time to develop.
