NextCloud for WMCH
Open, HighPublic


Wikimedia CH requested a new NextCloud to share documents with the community without using proprietary software.

This is in line with the Tech Strategy - stub here:

  • setup web environment
  • setup Let's Encrypt certificates with certbot

Event Timeline

I'm particularly OK with these:

Header always set Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=15552000; includeSubDomains"
Header always set X-Frame-Options           "SAMEORIGIN"
Header always set X-Content-Type-Options    "nosniff"
Header always set Referrer-Policy           "strict-origin-when-cross-origin"

But I'm not bold enough in enabling Content-Security-Policy or Permissions-Policy. Tips welcome.
