Description

Currently Flashproxy makes use of "crypto.stanford.edu/flashproxy" and bamsoftware.com for distributing the badge and therefor making Flashproxy work.

Questions that appear (to me) are:

  • Can Flashproxy stay on stanford.edu?
  • Is bamsoftware.com trusted enough for everybody to connect to?

I for myself think that stanford.edu is trustworthy and people won't have a problem with a) putting an iframe on their sites and b) contributing by being a proxy.

bamsoftware.com seems to be unknown.

The problem would be when Flashproxy gets distributed and Stanford says Flashproxy would have to move, because they don't want it on their infrastructure.

I had a conversation with David and he said that it's unlikely that stanford would remove the project. In fact other project pages still exist today.

So I dare to close this ticket.
