MDL Talent Hub - Development update 2019 (part I)

MDL Talent Hub - Development update 2019 (part I)

We are happy to announce some important updates this week, including new versions of our desktop and mobile wallet and key improvements on the UX/UI front. This article though will only cover the first part. There’s more soon.

New features for the app are ready to go, from ways talents and bookers can post feedback on each other to payment management and messaging, as well as improved onboarding. Meanwhile, we’ve built full end-to-end scenarios for bookers, talents, agencies, and most importantly parents that will help us make the gig booking process better for everyone involved.

Desktop wallet

The wallet has been updated from 0.21 -> 0.24, including changes and improvements in step with Skycoin wallet developments:

  • Added Content-Security-Policy header to http responses
    • Content Security Policy (CSP) is an added layer of security that helps to detect and mitigate certain types of attacks, including Cross Site Scripting (XSS) and data injection attacks. These attacks are used for everything from data theft to site defacement to distribution of malware.
  • Added CSRF check to wallet API
    • Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is an attack that forces an end user to execute unwanted actions on a web application in which they’re currently authenticated. If the victim is a normal user, a successful CSRF attack can force the user to perform state changing requests like transferring funds, changing their email address, and so forth.
  • Added libskycoin C API wrapper
    • libskycoin 0.0.1 released with bindings for cipher/address, cipher/hash, cipher/crypto, cli/create_rawtx
