I have released a new book and included library to make professional web sites using Elevate Web Builder (EWB) with mORMot, a highly popular free open-source middleware/database package.  The book and associated library are $30 US on Amazon, with a perpetual use and royalty-free license to use the code.

My clients demand a very high level of security.  Our sites are audited by professional Penetration Testers, people who test code and implementations against security attacks including, but not limited to Cross Site Scripting, Cross Site Request Forgery, sequence replay attacks, leaking passwords, and a variety of other attacks.   You can read up on security at: https://cheatsheetseries.owasp.org to get a feel for how thorough the testing is.

While the present Elevate server is vulnerable to many of these attacks, our hardened mORMot system passed without compromise.

In the book I share details of how to
1.   Use mormot easily, effectively, and securely with EWB

2.   Use Apache as the web server and thus have access to its SSL, reverse proxy, anti-attack modules, PHP modules and more

3.   Use JSON Web Tokens (JWT) to secure the site so that you can use externalized authentication such as OpenID Conenct, SAML, Radius, Active Directory/LDAP, smart cards, etc.

4.   Generate attractive letters/contracts/documents with Word or Open Office and use them as templates to generate PDFs or HTML documents or Email to your clients with mailmerge capabiltiies.  (The PDF code is still being finalized at this time).

5.   Use Windows, Linux or FreeBSD on Intel386 or AMD64 as your server operating system.  The code has been tested extensively on all three operating systems using Delphi Professional.  mORMot is compatible with both Delphi and FreePascal consult synopse.info for details on which editions of FreePascal are supported.

Externalized authentication is a big requirement for enterprise and internet systems.

FYI, most higher end systems will demand multifactor authentication within one year, including Google (Gmail/Gsuite), Microsoft Office 365, banks,cloud systems, etc.

Passwords no longer acceptable and cell phones are now common enough to be used by most for multifactor authentication.  Alternatives exist, list security tokens, phone calls, and others are also possible.
