This work presents a security analysis of a distributed software system. Relevant threats have been identified and a set of possible countermeasures are presented. The different countermeasures have been compared against each other by looking at performance, scalability, flexibility, usability and cost considerations. A prototype system has been implemented as a proof-of-concept with database encryption, logging and access control.
