[erlang-questions] Securing remote spawning
Wed Apr 23 19:37:48 CEST 2008
New to this list and Erlang, and I have a simple question that I
couldn't find an answer to in any of the docs: is it possible to
restrict the possibility of remote spawning or rpc on a given set of
nodes to only a subset of the functions?
Because if I think "trust no one" then only cookies for SaaS
applications imply that I loose a layer of defense (and have only the
firewall left). Especially because the Big Plus with Erlang woudl be
using Mnesia as well - but this implies moving all code busines + Db) in
the same zone.
The only option I can think of is doing all communication socket based
with custom protocols/DSLs that limit what you can do.
Any help/insights greatly appreciated!
