gotskillshot Posted January 24, 2014 Report Share Posted January 24, 2014 Is there a secure svn+ssh:// repository with authentication? I noticed that http:// is much slower than svn://. Overall I noticed this, in terms of security for the transfer of the software from lowest security/lowest speed transfer to highest security/highest speed transfer http://, https://, svn://, and svn+ssh://. I highly suggest using a secured svn repository due to the following: User authentication: Disable public access, logs if anyone shares the copyrighted product. Bug Tracker (tickets): Allows users to easily submit bugs they find. Easier Change log: In each revision you could add notes. In simple terms, the download could be faster and more secure if the http method of distribution is switch to a secured svn repository. At the present moment, a link can be distributed of the files without authentication and I am scared of this vulnerability. Wither the creation of authentication details to connect to the svn be created manually after a order is processed or using a call back method with paypal's payment api to access the secured svn repository that contains the software and documentation, that is your choice. Just my opinion, hope I don't sound offensive. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
