Phishing attack
GNU Taler must mitigate the most common sources of payment fraud. We must follow best practices in software design, 3rd party design guidelines that prevent confusion and misleading user interfaces, and must have others inspect our publicly available code. Furthermore, GNU Taler must provide extensive cryptographic evidence for all key processes to enable all parties to precisely attribute bad behavior.
5. Collect the minimum information necessary
Privacy by design, privacy by default, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant
The privacy of buyers is given particular priority as part of principle (2). However, other parties - such as merchants - also must have data protection. Generally, GNU Taler must collect the minimum information necessary: data that is not collected or is no longer stored can not be compromised.
6. Be usable
Buy with one click. Easy for children.
GNU Taler must be usable for non-expert customers including end-users of a GNU Taler wallet, merchants who wish to accept payments using GNU Taler, and 3rd party application developers for e-commerce and other platforms. GNU Taler must follow best-practices usability guidelines and incorporate feedback from experts and users. Free/Libre software also requires Free/Libre documentation to allow for informed choices. GNU Taler must provide well-documented Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to allow frictionless integrations between GNU Taler and other projects.
7. Be efficient
Energy efficiency
GNU Taler must be designed to be efficient. Quite simply, efficiency means fewer things to break, and it means more transactions per second and lowers our environmental impact. Efficiency is also critical for GNU Taler to be used for micropayments. Therefore certain expensive primitives, such as proof-of-work, must not be used by GNU Taler.
