Security Considerations#

The oxd-server is a RESTful server that accepts HTTPS calls based on the dropwizard framework.

Limit access#

oxd-server is a web server which handles all requests. An attacker can use such an open server for their own needs or attack it (e.g. DDoS). Therefore, it is recommended to protect it by putting oxd-server in a private network. As an alternative, it is possible to proxy requests via a web server (e.g. Apache HTTP Server or nginx) and limit access via it.
