Security and Mobile Devices?(2?3 pages)?
What are the business needs for the security of your site? Are you in a regulated field like finance, healthcare, or education? What are the legal security requirements for protecting data and the privacy of your users? How will you go about securing your site? Will you obtain a digital certificate? Will you use HTTPS protocol? How will you physically secure your server? What is your backup plan, and how will you assure business continuity in the event your server is damaged or destroyed? Where will the server be kept and who has access to it?
What mobile platforms will access your site? Will you try for maximum compatibility across all platforms, or require particular mobile devices or kinds of devices to be used? What elements of your site will you discard for mobile users, and which will you prioritize? What percentage of mobile users do you actually expect to use your site versus desktop users? What about laptops and tablet computers?

Server Side Technology
After much thought on the requirements for this project, it is my intent to use an
open source LAMP stack system as a platform for this project . I have decided to use a
LAMP stack after considering the advantages of having a combination of open source
solutions which would not only make it easy on our budget but would provide us with a
lot of features that we can use in completing this project.
Our LAMP stack system will be made up of Linux for the operating system,
Apache for the web server, MySQL for the database, and PHP for the application
programming language. I have decided to use Linux because it is the most widely used
open source operating system (wikipedia.org) and its ability to support browser
applications in mobile devices (Android) which is prevalent nowadays . I?m using Apache
because it is once again, an open source and was designed to handle modern
operating systems plus it is one of the most popular web servers on the internet since
1996 (apache.org). MySQL is chosen for our database because it is cost-effective,
widely used, and well-supported. And compared to other systems, MySQL seems to be
much easier to learn which would equate to a lot of savings for the company because
lee time will be spent on training users. With PHP as our application programming
language, it will enable us to include interactive features like e-mail forms, shopping
carts that save previous orders and recommend similar products (about.com) the next
time you use the website. It can also provide for forums and messaging applications.
And PHP can also work interchangeably with HTML.
With the system being an open source, costs will be more on development which
would include the team members rates times the length of time it would take to
complete the project which I estimate to be at eight weeks. For hardware, we will be
using the company?s server hardware since it still has a tremendous capacity left in it.
The team for this project will be made up of a project manager, art director, designer, art
production specialist, html production specialist, programmer, copywriter, and quality
assurance. My initial assessment of costs being broken down per team member would
be the following:
Art Production Specialist
Html Production Specialist
It is the intent of this assessment to provide a general view of the project and the
costs that would be associated with it. A more concise assessment will be provided in
the coming days as my analysis of all the information regarding the project comes into
