What the new CAS Service Registry means to you

June 04, 2018
The campus is increasing its security profile by implementing the CAS Service Registry to list any site that needs CAS to log in using the CAS Service Registry. This will add a site to an approved, official white-list, require a site to use https://, and improve overall security performance by only including sites that truly need it. That's great news. Let's go over what this means to you as a SiteFarm user.

"How do I help my intranet users log out of the site?"

For security reasons, you may have recommended to your users that they log off the site when they’re done.

Honeypot Security

From Drupal.org:

Honeypot form protection

Honeypot form protection means that an invisible field is added to a form. If this invisible field is filled out (bots will usually put in a value), then the form will return an error. Normal users (read: human beings) won't ever see the field, so they won't fill it out. Even if they do, the field is labeled in such a way as to indicate the human shouldn't fill out the field.
