Notes

  1. Domain: what domain do user accounts live under? Usually accounts are user@domain.com. Some other domains run things as a subdomain like user@xmpp.domain.com.
  2. Registration: can new users sign up for a new buddycloud account?
  3. Jurisdiction rerers to what laws must be followed for posting content and what laws you, as a server operator follow for hosting content.
  4. hashed password storage: hashing is what turns your password "tellnoone" into "3b51e0d04530b1f7d10da05e38415bdd". Why is this important? When a server is hacked or when you can't trust your administrator, it's good to know that they cannot read your password. The Prosody project has excellent documentation on hashed passwords and the risks of not hashing.
  5. SSL/TLS only access: Your buddycloud server should not permit cleartext access. Supporting both cleartext and SSL is generally a bad idea: some clients will fallback to non-SSL access and then compromise the users password to anyone sniffing the connection.
  6. Privacy policy: disclose your information practices and what you do with collected personal information from users
