Summary0000476: user_address table contains sensitive information and should be treated as such
DescriptionUser Addresses are not part of the testing process. That said, CAcert might choose to store critical/sensitive data on critical/sensitive servers, while leaving non-critical testing service running on non-critical server.

This would require modifications in both the main website system and on the CATS system to adapt the changes. The gains from such a move are substantial, in which CATS would not store any personal data, avoiding problems with privacy policies, data protection agencies, directives and laws, security breach of non-critical servers/services, and offshore data processing.

Just to remember about the possibly outsourced nature of CATS, CAcert would be immune to third-party DPA violations in such case.
