Items to be reviewed | ThunderBird Big Files -- back-end

Introduce Feature

Goal of Feature, what is trying to be achieved (problem solved, use cases, etc)

  • store large file attachments in online storage
  • providers are XPCOM components
  • cooperating with service providers on both a technical and business side
  • can be pulblic services or private (ie. local ftp)
  • Files are uploaded when you attach them, possibly also from the attachment box afterwards.
  • "provision" UI
  • "logging in" UI
  • "attachment" UI
  • receiving a mail would have a link with some annotations
    • who specifies these annotations?
  • Thunderbird might do something special on receiving annotated mail (currently undefined -- automatically download, maybe?)

What solutions/approaches were considered other than the proposed solution?

Why was this solution chosen?

  • appearance of online storage for large files is well understood and accepted

Any security threats already considered in the design and why?

Threat Brainstorming

  • annotations could be used to XSS
  • escape filename and other userdata sent in URLs
  • MITM trying to subvert the SSL connection
