Best practices on EFP publishing

Greetings everyone,

I'd like to know what's the best/recommended way to publish content on external facing

portals, usually on our intranet scenario we use XML Forms + KM Navigation iViews so

we can play with layout sets and all to enhance UI.

However, that means access to component, would

that be good on internet? with that users can navigate through km if they wish - provided

they have read permission on the folders - which is a bad thing if they go directly to root folder

and check /etc for example, or try to sneak into images and mimes folders, but that's just

two amongst lots of other problems...

Also, I've got no idea what's SDN method too, there's some interesting filters or w/e so

users aren't able to distinguish what iView is being displayed, how can I do that?

kind regards,

    SDN is using Web Page Composer. You should also take a look into WPC for publishing EFP. WPC is based on KM, but has several advantages over XML Forms.

    Regarding the security aspect:

    There are several SDN articles / documentations about how to implement an EFP (like: Look & Feel, Framework Pages and Portal Navigation).

    You can restrict access for anonymous users - in fact, you'll have to explicitly allow access for anonymous users. If you don't like that your users can access something else than /etc/public/, just don't give the guest user read access. You can alsouse a reverse proxy to allow access to only the necessary KM folders and redirect the rest to the start page.
