We Need More Security

If you want to keep stuff private, then do exactly that. User accounts, password authentication, encryption. Those are the things a programmable computer allows.

There is the feature of user access control, but I believe this to be a lazy solution because it enforces security through external game mechanics, not programming or even the computer itself.

If enabled in the config, computers can be “owned”, i.e. the list of users of a computer (see the computer API) determines how players can interact with a computer. Specifically, only players registered as users can:

  • Change a computer's inventory.
  • Break the computer case (robots are exempt, they can always be broken, to avoid griefing).
  • Input commands on the computer, i.e. use the keyboard / click the screen.
