Senior Project - SPEED


Security and Privacy Enhanced Encrypted Document Management System

Senior Project: 2005-2006

Niwot, CO

VeriPal's Message-Identity-Transaction system (MITs) alleviates identity theft via secure, encrypted, (no spam) messages, and secure transactions. The company proposed a project which would extend MITs by applying digital signatures to digital documents and other file types. The primary goal of the project was to make digital signature technology and its benefits available to audiences with a limited degree of technical sophistication. The product allows a user to sign a document with his unique private key, and then to verify the signatures of received documents.

The system uses a simplified Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to produce a "Signed Document Management System". This architecture is compatible with MITs' public-key encryption infrastructure and certificate authority. Agile, test-driven development was used while developing the product. The design of the application followed the capability maturity model, the personal software process, and the team software process. The software was built with Java as an Eclipse Feature. As such, it is cross-platform compatible and can be used on any platform which supports the Java Runtime Environment (version 1.5 or better).
