I'm about to embark on some design work regarding security models for online meetings. This is an especially fun and challenging design task, since we have many possible options, but presenting them in a straightforward, uncomplicated way to end users can be tricky.
I'd love to hear from some of you regarding which online security capabilities matter most to you, and why. Here are some capabilities that come to mind:
- Meeting rooms that are hidden (i.e., people can't find them by searching, except by exact match)
- Meeting room passwords, including rules around when they expire
- Only authenticated users can join
- Meeting participants can join only if the meeting room owner is in the room
- Meeting room access control lists (you can only join if your name is in the list)
- Locking a room (i.e., no one can enter the room once it is locked)
Which of these do you use? Which of these would you never use?
