Zero Hope Policy
Anyone who is concerned with ICT-security will be familiar with the term 'zero trust'. This refers to a program-logical approach in which no point in the network is trusted - not even one's own (intra)network, not even one's own host. This is intended to increase security in networks by making it impossible for an attacker to obtain security-relevant privileges by pretending to be a trusted party. We consider the 'omission' of such privileges to be a reasonable approach and have developed it further: The Zero Hope principle assumes that everything that is in principle compromisable must be omitted. This is because the presence of a security measure, that is not secure, leads to a false sense of security and ultimately to misjudgments and application errors. This is why we, for example, do show your login passwort in plain text (we do not store it in plain text, though). You should be aware, that a password is never safe. We rather have chosen a way, that the password is irrelevant, when intercepted by an attacker. An attacker can then access your account but still cannot decrypt anything. Relying on a password would give the user a false sense of security, whereas that security may could have been compromised long ago. It is better to know under which circumstances security can no longer be assumed. And if the security measures do not exist at all, they cannot be falsely relied upon. All the security measures we have built into WebOTPad project are reliable according to this principle. You know exactly when your security is guaranteed and when it is compromised.
