ASSISTments Security Overview

Protocol and session security

To ensure the privacy and security of your data, ASSISTments uses HTTPS for all communication and encrypts all inbound and outbound traffic using 128-bit TLS/SSL.

Physical Security

All ASSISTments user data is stored in highly stable, secure data servers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Backup and recovery

ASSISTments data is backed up redundantly (every day). In case of emergency or disaster, data is recovered from our own off-site backup.

Data Access

The ASSISTments LTI API uses the industry-standard OAuth2 protocol, which provides secure access to ASSISTments data while preventing direct access to ASSISTments databases.
