The following features are only tested / supported on linux hosts:
36

37
* General: QFQ is coded to run on Linux hosts, preferable on Debian derivates like Ubuntu.
38
39
40
41
* HTML to PDF conversion - command `wkhtmltopdf`.
* Concatenation of PDF files - command `pdftk`.
* Mime type detection for uploads - command `file`.

Preparation
-----------

Report & Form
^^^^^^^^^^^^^

In PHP 5.x the QFQ extension needs  the PHP MySQL native driver. The following functions are used and are only available with the
native driver (see also: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/php-mysqlnd/):

* mysqli::get_result (important),
* mysqli::fetch_all (nice to use)

To normalize UTF8 input, the *php5-intl* resp. *php7.0-intl* package is needed by

* normalizer::normalize()

61
For the `download`_ function, the programs `pdftk` and `file` are necessary to concatenate PDF files.
62

63
64
Preparation for Ubuntu 14.04::

65
	sudo apt-get install php5-mysqlnd php5-intl
66
67
	sudo apt-get install pdftk file                  # for file upload and PDF
	sudo apt-get install inkscape graphicsmagick     # to render thumbnails
68
69
70
	sudo php5enmod mysqlnd
	sudo service apache2 restart

Preparation for Ubuntu 16.04::
72

73
	sudo apt install php7.0-intl
74
75
	sudo apt install pdftk libxrender1 file pdf2svg  # for file upload, PDF and 'HTML to PDF' (wkhtmltopdf), PDF split
	sudo apt install inkscape graphicsmagick         # to render thumbnails

77
.. _wkhtml:

wkhtmltopdf
^^^^^^^^^^^
81

82
83
`wkhtmltopdf <http://wkhtmltopdf.org/>`_ will be used by QFQ to offer 'website print' and 'HTML to PDF' conversion.
The program is not included in QFQ and has to be manually installed.
84

85
86
87
88
* The Ubuntu package `wkhtmltopdf` needs a running Xserver - this does not work on a headless webserver.

  * Best is to install the QT version from the named website above.
  * In case of trouble with wkhtmltopdf, also install 'libxrender1'.
89

90
In `config-qfq-ini`_ specify the:
91

92
93
94
95
96
97
98
99
* installed `wkhtmltopdf` binary:

  * `WKHTMLTOPDF = /.../wkhtmltopdf`

* the site base URL:

  * `BASE_URL_PRINT = http://example.com/`

100

101
102
**Important**: To access FE_GROUP protected pages or content, it's necessary to disable the `[FE][lockIP]` check! `wkhtml`
will access the Typo3 page locally (localhost) and that IP address is different from the client (=user) IP.
103
104

Configure via Typo3 Installtool `All configuration > $TYPO3_CONF_VARS['FE']`: ::
105
106
107

   [FE][lockIP] = 0

108
109
110
111
112
**Warning**: this disables an important anti-'session hijacking' protection. The security level of the whole installation
will be *lowered*! Again, this is only needed if `wkhtml` needs access to FE_GROUP protected pages & content. As an
alternative to lower the security level, create a separated page subtree which is only accessible (configured via
Typosript) from specific IPs **or** if a FE-User is logged in.

113
114
If there are problems with converting/downloading FE_GROUP protected pages, check `SHOW_DEBUG_INFO = download` to debug.

115
116
117
118
**Important**: Converting HTML to PDF gives no error message but RC=-1? Check carefully all includes of CSS, JS, images
and so on! Typically some of them fails to load and wkhtml stops running!

HTML to PDF conversion
''''''''''''''''''''''

`wkhtmltopdf` converts a website (local or remote) to a (multi)-page PDF file. It's mainly used in `download`_.

Print
'''''

Different browser prints the same page in different variations. To prevent this, QFQ implements a small PHP wrapper

128
`print.php` with uses `wkhtmltopdf` to convert HTML to PDF.

130
131
132
133
134
135
136
137
138
139
Provide a `print this page`-link (replace {current pageId})::

	<a href="typo3conf/ext/qfq/qfq/api/print.php?id={current pageId}">Print this page</a>

Any parameter specified after `print.php` will be delivered to `wkhtmltopdf` as part of the URL.

Typoscript code to implement a print link on every page::

	10 = TEXT
	10 {
140
		wrap = <a href="typo3conf/ext/qfq/qfq/api/print.php?id=|&type=2"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-print" aria-hidden="true"></span> Printview</a>

Send Email
^^^^^^^^^^

QFQ sends mail via `sendEmail` http://caspian.dotconf.net/menu/Software/SendEmail/ - a small perl script without a central
configuration.

By default, `sendEmail` uses the local installed MTA, writes a logfile to `typo3conf/mail.log` and handles attachments
via commandline options. A basic HTML email support is implemented.

The latest version is v1.56, which has at least one bug. That one is patched in the QFQ internal version v1.56p1 (see
QFQ GIT sources in directory 'patches/sendEmail.patch').

161
162
163
164
The Typo3 sendmail eco-system is not used at all by QFQ.

Thumbnail
^^^^^^^^^

Thumbnails will be rendered via GraphicsMagick (http://www.graphicsmagick.org/) 'convert' and 'inkscape' (https://inkscape.org).
'inkscape' is only used for '.svg' files.

The Typo3 grafic eco-system is not used at all by QFQ.
165

166
167
Usage: `column-thumbnail`_.

Setup
-----

* Install the extension via the Extensionmanager.

  * If you install the extension by manual download/upload and get an error message
    "can't activate extension": rename the downloaded zip file to `qfq.zip` or `qfq_<version>.zip` (e.g. version: 0.9.1).

  * If the Extensionmanager stops after importing: check your memory limit in php.ini.

* Enable the online local-documentation_.
* Copy/rename the file *<Documentroot>/typo3conf/ext/<ext_dir>/config.example.qfq.ini* to
  *<Documentroot>/typo3conf/config.qfq.ini* and configure the necessary values: `config.qfq.ini`_
  The configuration file is outside the extension directory to not loose it during updates.

182
* When the QFQ Extension is called the first time on the Typo3 Frontend, the file *<ext_dir>/qfq/sql/formEditor.sql* will
183
  played and fills the database with the *Form editor* records. This also happens automatically after each software update of QFQ.
184
185
* Configure Typoscript to include Bootstrap, jQuery, QFQ javascript and CSS files.

It's also possible to setup custom variables in `config.qfq.ini`.

E.g. to setup a contact address and reuse the information inside your installation do:

 * `config.qfq.in`::

		ADMINISTRATIVE_CONTACT = john@doe.com
		ADMINISTRATIVE_ADDRESS = John Doe, Hollywood Blvd. 1, L.A.
		ADMINISTRATIVE_NAME = John Doe

 * Somewhere in a `Form` or in `Report`::

      {{ADMINISTRATIVE_CONTACT:Y}}, {{ADMINISTRATIVE_ADDRESS:Y}}, {{ADMINISTRATIVE_NAME}}

This option is useful to make generic custom values, saved in the database, accessible to all QFQ Report and Forms.
Access such variables via `{{<varname>:Y}}`.

In case QFQ should stop working if a given query does not select exact one record (e.g. a missing period), define an
error message: ::

  FILL_STORE_SYSTEM_BY_SQL_1 = "SELECT name FROM Person WHERE name='Doe'"
  FILL_STORE_SYSTEM_BY_SQL_ERROR_MSG_1 = Too many or to few "Doe's" in our database

581
582
583
584

After a full QFQ installation, three things are prepared:

* a table `Period` (extend / change it to your needs, fill them with your periods),
* one sample record in table `Period`,
Carsten  Rose's avatar
Carsten Rose committed
586
* in `config.qfq.ini`_ the default definition of `FILL_STORE_SYSTEM_BY_SQL_1` will set the variable `periodId` during QFQ load.

Websites, delivering semester data, schoolyears schedules, or any other type or periods, often need an index to the

592

In `config.qfq.ini`: ::

a variable 'periodId' will automatically computed and filled in STORE SYSTEM. Access it via `{{periodId:Y0}}`.
To get the name and current period: ::

  SELECT name, ' / ', start FROM Period WHERE id={{periodId:Y0}}

Typically, it's necessary to offer a 'previous' / 'next' link. In this example, the STORE SIP holds the new periodId: ::

  SELECT CONCAT('id={{pageId:T}}&periodId=', {{periodId:SY0}}-1, '|Next') AS _Page, ' ', name, ' ', CONCAT('id={{pageId:T}}&periodId=', {{periodId:SY0}}+1, '|Next') AS _Page FROM Period AS s WHERE s.id={{periodId:SY0}}

Take care for minimum and maximum indexes (do not render the links if out of range).

DB USER privileges
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The specified DB User needs privileges to the database of at least: SELECT / INSERT / UPDATE / DELETE / SHOW.

To apply automatically QFQ-'DB UPDATE' the following rights are mandatory too: CREATE / ALTER

652
653
SIPs
----

The following is a technical background information. Not needed to just use QFQ.

654
The SIPs (=Server Id Pairs) are uniq timestamps, created/registered on the fly for a specific browser session (=user). Every SIP is
655
656
657
658
659
660
661
662
663
664
665
666
667
668
registered on the server (= stored in a PHP Session) and contains one or more key/value pairs. The key/value pairs never leave
the server. The SIPs will be used:

* to protect values not to be spoofed by anyone,
* to protect values not to be altered by anyone,
* to grant access, e.g.:

  * load and save forms,
  * upload files,
  * download files,
  * PHP AJAX pages.

SIPs becomes invalid, as soon as the current browser session is destroyed. The client (= user) can't manipulate the content
of SIPs - it's only possible to reuse already registered SIPs by the user, who already owns the session.
669
670
671
672
673

Access privileges
-----------------

The Typo3 FE Groups can be used to implement access privileges. Such groups are assigned to
674

675
676
677
678
679
680
681
* Typo3 FE users,
* Typo3 pages,
* and/or Typo3 content records (e.g. QFQ records).

This will be used for general page structure privileges.

A `record base` privileges controlling (e.g. which user can edit
682
683
which person record) will be implicit configured, by the way that records are viewable / editable (or not) through
SQL in the specific QFQ tt-content statements.
684
685
686
687
688
689

Typo3 QFQ content element
-------------------------

Insert one or more QFQ content elements on a Typo3 page. Specify column and language per content record as wished.

690
691
The title of the QFQ content element will not be rendered on the frontend. It's only visible to the webmaster in the
backend for orientation.

.. _`qfq-database`:

QFQ Database
------------

Recommended setup for Typo3 & QFQ Installation is with *two* databases. One for the Typo3 installation and one for QFQ.
A good practice is to name both databases equal, appending the suffix '_t3' and '_db'.

When QFQ is called, it checks for QFQ system tables. If they do not exist or have a lower version than the installed qfq
version, the system tables will be automatically installed or updated.

Multi Databases
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

QFQ itself can be separated in 'QFQ system' (see `system-tables`_) and 'QFQ data' databases. This might be useful
for one central data database and multiple Typo3 QFQ installations. E.g. there are three departments and all work on the
same data database, but use different QFQ versions. Than it's helpful to have separate QFQ databases.
792

793
794
Furthermore a `Form` can operate on specified additional database, specified per `Form`.parameter.dbIndex and configured
via `config.qfq.ini`_.

In `config.qfq.ini`_ mutliple database credentials can be prepared. Mandatory is at least one credential setup like
`DB_1_USER`, `DB_1_SERVER`, `DB_1_PASSWORD`, `DB_1_NAME`. The number '1' indicates the `dbIndex`. Increment the number
to specify further database credential setups.

If not explicit specified, 'QFQ system' and 'QFQ database' will use the same database with the same credentials (setup 'A').

To define separate 'QFQ data' and 'QFQ system', in `config.qfq.ini`_ define  `DB_1_USER`, ... (e.g. 'QFQ data') and `DB_2_USER`,
... (e.g. 'QFQ system') and specify the assignment::

	DB_INDEX_DATA = 1
	DB_INDEX_QFQ = 2

833
To operate a form (show, load and save) on a different database, use `Form.parameter.dbIndex` (see `form-parameter`_).

Different QFQ versions, shared database
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

When using different QFQ versions and a shared 'QFQ data'-database, there is some risk of conflicting
'QFQ system' tables. Best is to always use the same QFQ version on all instances.

Variable
========
921

922
923
Most elements of a Form, FormElement or Report might contain (QFQ) variables. Such variables are surrounded by
double curly braces. Three different types of functionality are provided. Access to:
924

925
926
927
* `store-variables`_
* `sql-variables`_
* `column-variables`_
928

929
Some examples, including nesting::
930

931
932
933
934
  # Store
  #---------------------------------------------
  {{r}}
  {{index:FS}}
935
  {{name:FS:alnumx:s:my default}}
936

937
938
939
  # SQL
  #---------------------------------------------
  {{SELECT name FROM person WHERE id=1234}}
940

941
942
943
944
  # Columns
  #---------------------------------------------
  {{10.pId}}
  {{10.20.pId}}
945

946
947
948
949
950
  # Nesting
  #---------------------------------------------
  {{SELECT name FROM person WHERE id={{r}} }}
  {{SELECT name FROM person WHERE id={{key1:C:alnumx}} }} # explained below
  {{SELECT name FROM person WHERE id={{SELECT id FROM pf LIMIT 1}} }} # it's more efficient to use only one query
951
952


953
Leading and trailing spaces inside curly braces are removed.
954

955
956
  * *{{ SELECT "Hello World"   }}* becomes *{{SELECT "Hello World"}}*
  * *{{ varname   }}* becomes *{{varname}}*

963
964
Store variables
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
965

966
Syntax:  *{{VarName[:<store / prio>[:<sanitize class>[:<escape>[:<default>]]]]}}*
967

968
* Example::
969

970
971
972
973
  {{pId}}
  {{pId:FSE}}
  {{pId:FSE:digit}}
  {{name:FSE:alnumx:m}}
974
  {{name:FSE:alnumx:m:John Doe}}
975

976
977
978
* Zero or more stores might be specified to be searched for the given VarName.
* If no store is specified, the by default searched stores are: **FSRVD** (=FORM > SIP > RECORD > VARS > DEFAULT).
* If the VarName is not found in one store, the next store is searched,  up to the last specified store.
979
980
* If the VarName is not found and a default value is given, the default is returned.
* If no value is found, nothing is replaced - the string '{{<VarName>}}' remains.
981
* If anywhere along the line an empty string is found, this **is** a value: therefore, the search will stop.

.. _`sql-variables`:
991

992
993
SQL variables
^^^^^^^^^^^^^
994

995
996
997
* The detection of an SQL command is case *insensitive*.
* Leading  whitespace will be skipped.
* The following commands are interpreted as SQL commands:
998

999
1000
1001
  * SELECT
  * INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, REPLACE, TRUNCATE
  * SHOW, DESCRIBE, EXPLAIN, SET
1002

1003
1004
1005
1006
* A SQL Statement might contain parameters, including additional SQL statements. Inner SQL queries will be executed first.
* All variables will be substituted one by one from inner to outer.
* The number of variables inside an input field or a SQL statement is not limited.
* A resultset of a SQL statement will be imploded over all: concat all columns of a row, concat all rows - there is no glue string.
1007

1008
* Example::
1009

1010
  {{SELECT id, name FROM Person}}
Carsten  Rose's avatar
Carsten Rose committed
1011
1012
  {{SELECT id, name, IF({{feUser:T0}}=0,'Yes','No')  FROM Person WHERE id={{r:S}} }}
  {{SELECT id, city FROM Address AS adr WHERE adr.accId={{SELECT id FROM Account AS acc WHERE acc.name={{feUser:T0}} }} }}
1013

1014
* Special case for `SELECT` input fields and FormElement.type=action `sqlValidate`. To deliver a result array specify an '!' before the SELECT: ::
1015

1016
   {{!SELECT ...}}
1017

1018

1019
.. _`column-variables`:
1020

1021
1022
1023
1024
1025
Column variables
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Syntax:  *{{<level>.<column>}}*

1026
Only used in report to access outer columns. See `access-column-values`_ and `syntax-of-report`_.
1027

1028
1029
There might be name conflicts between VarName / SQL keywords and <line identifier>. QFQ checks first for '<level>',
than for 'SQL keywords' and than for 'VarNames' in stores.
1030
1031
1032

All types might be nested with each other. There is no limit of nesting variables.

1033
1034
Very specific: Also, it's possible that the content of a variable is again (including curly braces) a variable - this
is sometimes used in text templates, where the template is retrieved from a record and
1035
1036
1037
specific locations in the text will be (automatically by QFQ) replaced by values from other sources.

.. _`sanitize-class`:
1038
1039

Sanitize class
1040
1041
--------------

1042
1043
Values in STORE_CLIENT *C* (Client=Browser) and STORE_FORM *F* (Form, HTTP 'post') are checked against a
sanitize class. Values from other stores are not checked against any sanitize class.
1044

1045
* If a value violates the specific sanitize class, the value becomes `!!<name of sanitize class>!!`. E.g. `!!gigit!!`.
1046
* Variables get by default the sanitize class defined in the corresponding `FormElement`. If not defined,
1047
1048
  the default class is 'digit'.
* A default sanitize class can be overwritten by individual definition: *{{a:C:all}}*
1049
1050

.. _`variable-escape`:

Escape
------

Variables used in SQL Statements might cause trouble by using: NUL (ASCII 0), \\n, \\r, \\, ', ", and Control-Z.

To protect the web application the following `escape` types are available:

	* 'm' - `real_escape_string() <http://php.net/manual/en/mysqli.real-escape-string.php>`_ (m = mysql)
	* 'l' - LDAP search filter values will be escaped: `ldap-escape() <http://php.net/manual/en/function.ldap-escape.php>`_ (LDAP_ESCAPE_FILTER).
	* 'L' - LDAP DN values will be escaped. `ldap-escape() <http://php.net/manual/en/function.ldap-escape.php>`_ (LDAP_ESCAPE_DN).
	* 's' - single ticks will be escaped. str_replace() of ' against \\'.
	* 'd' - double ticks will be escaped: str_replace() of " against \\".
1105
1106
	* 'c' - config - the escape type configured in `config.qfq.ini`_.
	* ''  - the escape type configured in `config.qfq.ini`_.
1107
1108
1109
1110
1111
1112
1113
1114
	* '-' - no escaping.

* The `escape` type is defined by the fourth parameter of the variable. E.g.: `{{name:FE:alnumx:m}}` (m = mysql).
* It's possible to combine different `escape` types, they will be processed in the order given. E.g. `{{name:FE:alnumx:Ls}}` (L, s).
* Escaping is typically necessary for SQL or LDAP queries.
* Be careful when escaping nested variables. Best is to escape **only** the most outer variable.
* In `config.qfq.ini`_ a global `ESCAPE_TYPE_DEFAULT` can be defined. The configured escape type applies to all substituted
  variables, who *do not* contain a *specific* escape type.
1115
* Additionally a `defaultEscapeType` can be defined per `Form` (separate field in the *Form editor*). This overwrites the
1116
1117
1118
  global definition of `config.qfq.ini`. By default, every `Form.defaultEscapeType` = 'c' (=config), which means the setting
  in `config.qfq.ini`_.
* To suppress a default escape type, define the `escape type` = '-' on the specific variable. E.g.: `{{name:FE:alnumx:-}}`.
1119

1120
1121
1122
1123
1124
Security
========

All values passed to QFQ will be:

1125
1126
1127
1128
1129
1130
1131
1132
1133
1134
1135
1136
1137
1138
1139
1140
* Checked against max. length and allowed content, on the client and on the server side. On the server side, the check
  happens before any further processing. The 'length' and 'allowed' content is specified per `FormElement`. 'alnumx' is the
  default allowed content for those. Violating the rules will stop the 'save record' process (Form) or result in an empty value (Report).

* Only elements defined in the `Form` definition or requested by `Report` will be processed.

* UTF8 normalized (normalizer::normalize) to unify different ways of composing characters. It's more a database interest
  to work with unified data.

SQL statements are typically fired as `prepared statements` with separated variables.
Further *custom* SQL statements will be defined by the webmaster - those do not use `prepared statements` and might be
affected by SQL injection. To prevent SQL injection, every variable can be escaped with `mysqli::real_escape_string` by
defining the `escape` modifier `m`.

**QFQ notice**:

1141
* Variables passed by the client (=Browser) are untrusted and use the default sanitize class 'digit' (if nothing else is
1142
1143
  specified). If alpha characters are submitted, the content violates `digit` and becomes therefore
  `!!<name of sanitize class>!!` - there is no error message. Best is to always use SIP or digits.
1144
1145
1146
1147

Get Parameter
-------------

1148
**QFQ security restriction**:
1149

1150
1151
* GET parameter might contain urlencoded content (%xx). Therefore all GET parameter will be processed by 'urldecode()'.
  As a result a text like '%nn' in GET variables will always be decoded. It's not possible to transfer '%nn' itself.
1152
* GET variables are limited to SECURITY_GET_MAX_LENGTH chars - any violation will stop QFQ.
1153
1154
1155
1156

Post Parameter
--------------

1157
Per `FormElement` (HTML input) the default is to `htmlspecialchars()` the input. This means &<>'" will be encoded as htmlentity
1158
and saved as a htmlentity in the database. In case any of these characters (e.g. for HTML tags) are
1159
1160
1161
required, the encoding can be disabled per FormElement: `encode=none` (default is `specialchar`).

During Form load, htmlentities are decoded again.
1162
1163
1164
1165

$_SERVER
--------

1166
All $_SERVER vars are htmlentities encoded (all, not only specialchars!) .
1167
1168
1169
1170

Honeypot
--------

1171
1172
Every QFQ Form contains 'honeypot'-HTML input elements (HTML: hidden & readonly). Which of them to use is configured in
`config.qfq.ini`_ (default:   'username', 'password' and 'email'). On every start of QFQ (form, report, save, ...),
1173
1174
1175
1176
1177
these variables are tested if they are non-empty. In such a case a probably malicous bot has send the request and the
request will not be processed.

If any of the default configured variable names are needed (which will never be the case for QFQ), an explicit variable name
list have to be configured in `config.qfq.ini`_.
1178

1179
**QFQ security restriction**:
1180

1181
* The honeypot variables can't be used in GET or POST as regular HTML input elements - any values of them will terminate QFQ.
1182
1183
1184
1185

Violation
---------

1186
On any violation, QFQ will sleep SECURITY_ATTACK_DELAY seconds (`config.qfq.ini`_) and than exit the running PHP process.
1187
1188
A detected attack leads to a complete white (=empty) page.

1189
If SECURITY_SHOW_MESSAGE = true (`config.qfq.ini`_), at least a message is displayed after the delay.
1190

1191
1192
Client Parameter via SIP
------------------------
1193
1194

Links with URL parameters, targeting to the local website, are typically SIP encoded. Instead of transferring the parameter
1195
1196
as part of the URL, only one uniqe GET parameter 's' is appended at the link. The parameter 's' is uniq (equal to a
timestamp) for the user. Assigned variables are stored as a part of the PHP user session on the server.
1197
1198
1199
1200
Two users might have the same value of parameter 's', but the content is completely independet.

Variables needed by Typo3 remains on the link and are not 'sip-encoded'.

1201
1202
.. _`SecureDirectFileAccess`:

1203
1204
1205
1206
1207
1208
1209
Secure direct fileaccess
------------------------

If the application uploads files, mostly it's not necessary and often a security issue, to offer a direct download of
the uploaded files. Best is to create a directory, e.g. `fileadmin/protected` and deny direct access via webbrowser to it.
E.g. for Apache set a htaccess rule: ::

Carsten  Rose's avatar
Carsten Rose committed
1210
		<Directory "/var/www/html/fileadmin/protected">
1211
1212
1213
			Require all denied
		</Directory>

1214
1215
**Important**: all QFQ uploads should then save files in or below such a directory.

1216
1217
To offer download of those files, use the reserved columnname '_download':`download`_ or variants.

1218
**Important**: To protect the installation against executing of uploaded malicious script code, disable PHP for the final upload
1219
directory. E.g. `fileadmin`: ::
Carsten  Rose's avatar
Carsten Rose committed
1220

Carsten  Rose's avatar
Carsten Rose committed
1221
		<Directory "/var/www/html/fileadmin">
Carsten  Rose's avatar
Carsten Rose committed
1222
1223
1224
			php_admin_flag engine Off
		</Directory>

1225
1226
This is in general a good security improvement for directories with user supplied content.

1227
1228
1229
1230
File upload
-----------

By default the mime type of every uploaded file is checked against a whitelist of allowed mime types. The mime type of
1231
1232
1233
a file can be (easily) faked by an attacker. This check is good to handle regular user file upload for specific file types. To
prevent attacks against uploading and executing malicous code this won't help.

1234
1235
1236
Instead prohibit the execution of user contributed files by the webserver config (`SecureDirectFileAccess`_).

* Default *<prio>*: *FSRVD* - Form / SIP / Record / Vars / Table definition.
* Hint: Preferable, parameter should be submitted by SIP, not by Client (=URL).

  * Warning: Data submitted via 'Client' can be easily spoofed and altered.
  * Best: Data submitted via SIP never leaves the server, cannot be spoofed or altered by the user.
  * SIPs can _only_ be defined by using *Report*. Inside of *Report* use columns 'Link' (with attribute 's'), 'page?' or 'Page?'.

* Represents the values in the form, typically before saving them.
* Used for:

  * *FormElements* who will be rerendered, after a parent *FormElement* has been changed by the user.
  * *FormElement* actions, before saving the form.
  * Values will be sanitized by the class configured in corresponding the *FormElement*. By default, the sanitize class is `alnumx`.
