System Description of ExorLive

Print Friendly and PDF


ExorLive is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution for planning workouts and for related administrative tasks. The solution consists of a load balanced web application driven by AJAX and web services, and a separate set of SOAP enabled web services for external integration.

ExorLive is running on a set of Microsoft Azure Servers by Microsoft, in the EU (Dublin, Ireland). Data is stored in an Sql database. The servers are administered by ExorLive Headquarter in Oslo. Only internal technical personnel in ExorLive authorized and located at ExorLive's office in Oslo have access to personal data.


Security in ExorLive is enforced by a strict security policy, and does not permit entities to be accessed or manipulated across organizations. Security is role based within the organization and users can be given administrative roles on a per unit/department level. The application is always accessed over SSL, safeguarding the information being exchanged between the client and the server from eavesdropping. ExorLive stores only a hash of the user’s password, and when authenticating through ExorLive’s regular interface, salt, hashing, and a short lived challenge is used to ensure that message replay cannot be used to wrongfully gain access. All data is encrypted. External services are required to use the SSL enabled endpoints to ensure transport security.

The system provides integrity by ensuring that users are not able to insert or edit entities

they are not authorized for. Actions are logged. All data is replicated on multiple servers real-time, and backups are stored on Microsoft Azure Servers, in the EU (Dublin, Ireland). ExorLive is processing and storing data in accordance with Norwegian, Swedish and Danish laws, as well as current EU directives.

ExorLive and storage encryption of data at-rest:
The ExorLive Azure Database for MySQL service uses the FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic module for storage encryption of data at-rest. The service uses the AES 256-bit cipher included in Azure storage encryption, and the keys are system managed. Storage encryption is always on and can't be disabled.

Security measures and procedures against external attacks: We are partners with Microsoft and keep our technical staff updated on the current system and security solutions. Through Microsoft Azure, we ensure with Microsoft that our services are always up to date on security and latest security patches. I.e. always running the latest version of important software, logging of all attempts at login, performance of manual vulnerability tests.

AD Integrations and SSO

ExorLive can be integrated with the customer’s AD (Active Directory). This means that access is managed in the AD and the users log in with their AD user to access ExorLive. Another IDP (identity provider) than Microsoft AD is also supported as long as the IDP supports either of the following protocols:

  • SAML2.0
  • OIDC

API for integration / link with ExorLive
There are different ways a partner application may communicate with ExorLive.
This is described on our developer site:

Personal information:

All personal information is being processed by ExorLive as Personal Data as defined in the Data Protection Legislation, including the European general data protection regulation (GDPR). Security in ExorLive is enforced by a strict security policy (see paragraph “Security”).

An organization determines their own Personal Data policy. Personal data entry is optional, and is not a requirement for ExorLive to work. However, it is common to enter Personal Data in ExorLive, because it is safe and provides the opportunity for following up the client / patient in a better way.

ExorLive can also deliver a solution where person-objects can be saved in ExorLive without personal information, but with a generic unique ID that can not be traced back to the person. The relationship between the anonymous unique ID and the real person does not exist in ExorLive database, but on a local server in the customer's IT environment. In this way, ExorLive adapts so that the ExorLive server only handles impersonal data, while personal information is only stored on the local server in the customer's IT environment. Further information on this solution, Personal Data Security module (PDS module), can be obtained upon request.
