Security concerns

As bugbuzz providing debugging in a software-as-service manner, all source code and local variables needed will be uploaded to the server. When a debugging session created, a random secret access key will be generated, and used for encryping all source code and local variables. The access key will be passed to dashboard as a part of hash tag like this

http://dashboard.bugbuzz.io/#/sessions/SECsLArhHBVHF5mrtvXHVp3T?access_key=<ACCESS KEY>

With the access key, the Ember.js dashboard app can then decrypt the source code and local variables downloaded from the server. As the access key is passed as part of hash in the URL, the server cannot see it, without the access key, your source code and local variables are not visible by the server.

For more details about security topic, you can also read my article Anonymous computing: Peer-to-peer encryption with Ember.js.

Run demo

install the project

virtualenv --no-site-packages .env
source .env/bin/activate
