      DATA ACCESS PRIVILEGES
      Access to all student information, personal and assessment related, is delimited to the site administrator and the teacher at each institution. Personal Information refers to data that can identify an individual user account to a student. Assessment information include answers, grades, teacher comments and reports collected and generated by the SABLE system. Both kinds of information are stored as "records" in a database.

      Between Institutions
      Student records are encapsulated within an "Institution". Institutions are created for each school licensing from IS3D, LLC. Schools within the same county or school district are kept separate and distinct. Each user belongs to exactly one institution. Users from Institution A cannot create, view, modify or delete records from any other Institution.
      Within Institutions
      Within an institution, there are "Student", "Teacher", and "Administrator" user roles. Students can only create, view, modify and delete their own records. Teachers are able to access records for students within their classes. Administrators may access records for any user within their Institution.
      Student Data

      GENERAL SERVER COMPLIANCE
      These containers are hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS)'s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). AWS is a FedRAMP Compliant Cloud Service Provider. Using EC2 ensures that we are in full FedRAMP compliance. AWS has already met many of the NIST 800-53 High controls, which qualify High-impact workloads. (http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/171827)

      INTRUSION PREVENTION SYSTEMS
      We have implemented a limited Intrusion Prevention System. The site tests incoming requests for properly formatted JSON packets and reasonable data contents. The site also uses an authentication generated token to recognize packets from accepted sources. Non-recognized and poor formed requests are discarded. Requests from authorized sources are also discarded, if the requested information is outside of the user’s institution and role related permissions.
      AWS has implemented physical intrusion systems through elaborate employee and personnel security and screening. AWS’s implementation has been sufficient to be rated FedRAMP compliant for software, infrastructural and physical precautions.
