What are secure web forms?
Everyone who has a website (homepage) has some type of form installed, usually contact forms and forms for logging in to the website’s CMS.
This means that data is sent from the browser to the web server, which then either stores the data in a database or forwards it as an e-mail message.
Form data is always sent as plain text from the browser and can quite easily be captured on the way to the web server if you do not use website security in the form of eg https.
If the data is saved in a database, it is saved in clear text and can be read if someone breaks in. If the data is forwarded from the web server as e-mail, this can easily be intercepted on the go and read.
Secure web forms protect against all of this.
ANON::form secure web forms are built with encryption of form data all the way from the browser to the final destination, so-called E2EE (End-2-End Encryption) technology.
The form data is thus already encrypted in the browser before it is sent to the web server and is either saved encrypted in the database or forwarded as an encrypted e-mail message.
The transport path itself is also encrypted with TLS (Transport Layer Security) between the browser and the web server and during e-mail transport.
With the ANON::form solution, the form data is thus transported encrypted already in the browser and then through encrypted “tunnels”.
ANON::form is also anonymised and follows the requirements for untraceability from, for example, the law on whistleblowers (read more about the new EU directive). Nothing is saved in the browser, external links to resources at eg Google are not used, nothing is saved in any logs on the web server and sensitive metadata in the e-mail is cleared.
ANON::form forms are always run in ANON::form’s own web servers in Finland or Germany for best security but can easily be adapted to existing website design and then linked to or embedded in existing website.
All forms are built on templates with RWD (Responsive Web Design), CSS, Js, language library and images. The existing standard templates can easily be expanded into your own even complex order or questionnaire forms. For security reasons, no online tools are used to build the forms.
