How Secure Is Belphanior?

For simplicity, a Belphanior system leaves security up to the network on which it is running. Future iterations may support requiring https connections to servants, but configuring passwords, certificates, etc. can really bog down the process of getting started. Since Belphanior is likely to be running in a home environment, a home router's firewall should protect it from basic intrusion, though any device with access to the intranet behind the firewall is a potential attacker.

By default, servants and butlers log HTTP activity via the standard pathways for Rails and Sinatra apps, which can make auditing and determining the source of an intrusion simpler.
