Thu Dec 11 08:51:28 PST 2003 More secure grade posting
Thank you for your replies to my survey. It seems that most people
understood and could use the persoanl password/keyword technique.
It clearly protects people from identity theft.
A number of people also pointed out something that had been bothering me: you can figure out the grades of some people because they earned bonusses or were absent in a particular class. Yesterday evening I had the time to translate the old CGI script into a PHP page. From now on, you must supply your keyword (first three letters) and will only be able to see those grades (plus notes, heading and such).
Try [ http://www.csci.csusb.edu/dick/cs488/grading/ ] and let me know if there are any problems.
If you find a security hole let me know!
If you want to see the code send me EMail with CS488search.php
in the subject.
