For every program that has access to network resources security is a key concern. Atomsnet has been
created as an easy to use program, meaning that configuration of the system is largely unnecessary.
Therefore no human errors can make the system less secure (aside from the possibly needed firewall
configuration discussed in the previous section).
The simplicity of the application is the strongest advantage of the atomsnet application. Since
external users are only allowed basically four actions and by default denied others I believe the
system to be very secure. All actions allowed use the HTTP GET protocol. Any other network requests
are automatically declined. All requests result in read-only operations.
I will now deal with safety regarding each allowed action.
