CMS Airship is a Free Software content management system (available on Github) that we introduced to the world last year.
We chose to build CMS Airship for two reasons:
The population of online publishers that need a content management system significantly dwarfs the population of web designers or software developers.
The existing content management systems offered inadequate security and neglected to cultivate a culture that promotes better security practices. (Often, they sacrifice security entirely in pursuit of adoption and market share.)
Although we have tried for years (and will continue to try) to improve the security posture of other open source CMS platforms, we believe that truly democratized publishing is only possible if a secure-by-default option is available today.
How can we be certain that CMS Airship is secure?
The rest of this post is dedicated to answering this question in detail. There is one thing we want you to keep in mind as you read
