As is with the rest of Panopta, security was (and is) top of mind when implementing CounterMeasures. A couple key considerations were made to ensure a secure experience:

  • SSL communication: all communication between the agent and Panopta is over SSL (this goes for all agent communication)
  • All Outbound Communication: the agent only requires outbound communication and only receives information in response to requests made to Panopta (this goes for all agent communication)
  • Only local code is executed: Only code that is located on the instance is executed. Nothing that is retrieved from Panopta is executed
