This section provides information about peer-to-peer networking and security considerations of Topologi products using the markup editor component: these include the Topologi Collaborative Markup Editor, the Topologi Professional Edition and the Topologi Mentor for PureView products.

Availability of Information

When you use the select "Update XAR" or "Update Plug-ins", if you are online, your system will connect with the services that have been enabled. The services are: from the Topologi servers, from some server designated by the user, or from a peer.

Web Update from the Topologi server is enabled by default. You can disable it. The other services are disabled by default. This allows you to maintain your editor with the most up-to-date standards, help assistance and update features. No information is sent from the editor to Topologi servers.

When Topologi first starts, it attempts to connect to a Topologi server and will download any more recent versions of help files.

No information is sent from the editor to Topologi servers. We cannot access any document on which you are working or other information stored on your computer. The only information we can know is that someone has used a computer with a certain Internet address and started a Topologi session or that they are performing a web update.

Computers on the same LAN using Topologi are automatically connected to each other as peers. The only information available from one peer to another is a list of the directories used and the login name of each user. The web update, messaging and screen shot facilities all occur by the user requesting an update.

Note: Directories names are not shared between versions of Topologi running on different operating system families. Within the Windows™ family of operating systems, the C: drive is not shared by default. Files and filenames with a directory are not shared or visible.

Users of portable computers should note that, if connecting to a LAN shared by other users, for example at a conference or sales meeting, the editor will make available the directories you use to other peers. In order to prevent this, disable peer-to-peer networking on startup, or use a unique peer-group name, or block off "diary sharing" from any drive.


It is possible that a user could, by malice or unintentionally, create a plug-in which performs some undesirable operations. In order to propagate this plug-in, all the following must be true: the bad plug-in has been stored into the appropriate location on their system or on a departmental server, and the recipient user has Topologi with peer updates or departmental updates enabled, and the recipient user requests a web update, and the plug-in has a version number greater than any existing plug-in of the same name on the recipient's server, and the recipient has not installed a fixed version of the plug-in using the provided conventions, and the recipient is part of the same peer group (true by default) or is using the same departmental server and directories. If peer-to-peer updates are enabled, a bad plug-in could propagate to all peers on a LAN.

Please note that this security characteristic is similar to using a shared directory (in the case of peer updates) or a LAN server with centrally-provided applications (in the case of department server updates.) No authentication service is currently provided on plug-ins, because Topologi only provides facilities for connecting to "friendly" parties (peers, departments, Topologi servers.)

Plug-ins are dynamically loaded, and unwanted or suspect plug-ins can be removed using the computer's usual file management functions.

Please note that some systems may have security software installed which warns if an application acts in a "server" mode. The "peer-to-peer" networking used by Topologi acts as both server and client, and so may trigger warnings by such software.
