LuxSci SecureForm is full-featured, regardless of where your email or website is hosted.

Free PDF Form Hosting

Feature
Secure hosting for your PDF forms

For each of your PDF SecureForm configurations, you can upload the PDF form that goes with it. We will host this file for you and provide you with a secure link that you can use to access it.

  • Unlimited accesses from anywhere
  • Link protected with SSL (links of the form: https://...)
  • Links brandable with your domain name, if you have Private Labeling)
  • 20 MB size limit per PDF (contact support if you need larger)
  • No additional fee for storage or access to these hosted PDFs

Security

Feature

Securely transmit PDF form data over SSL

HIPAA-compliant PDF form submission and processing
At-rest encryption in Email, SecureChat, MySQL and WebAides Documents
SSL-encrypted form posts without purchasing your own certificate
Enforceable security policies to ensure a secure end-to-end process
Anti-virus scanning of uploaded files
SecureForm uses ClamAV (which is updated hourly) to scan all uploaded files. Any form submissions with suspect files will be rejected.
Block web (HTML) form spam and abuse
Limit, deny, or allow form posts by IP address

Block unwanted posts to your web forms via:

  • Optional Form Spam blocking without CAPTCHA (requires that the end user have JavaScript enabled and performs extended validation checks on the submitted data to block spam bots).
  • Optional HTTP referrer checking
  • Optional IP address allow and deny lists
  • Optional per-IP address rate limits; cut-off IP address(es) if limit exceeded over 24 hours.
SSL, SFTP, and other security measures are optional (except for HIPAA)

Form Configuration

Feature
Web (HMTL) form submit via HTTP POST or GET
Web Forms: Custom success and failure pages
You supply links to your own success and failure web pages; the end user is shown these once the form posting completes. For PDF forms, you supply your own success and failure PDF documents to be displayed to the end user once the form post is complete.
PDF Forms: Custom success and failure PDFs
You can upload a PDF to show on successful form submission and, optionally, one to display on failure.

The success PDF can be a "template" so that form data can be re-filled back into it before it is sent back to the user. This allows you to either give the user a copy of the completed form or a personalized success page.

Ink Signatures: Capture hand written signatures in web forms.
Supports up to 25 files & 50 MB of data in each form post.
All posted files are automatically scanned for viruses; posts with viruses are rejected.
Integrate with client-side AJAX form submission

Forms can be configured to return only HTTP status codes (e.g. 200 for success, and 400+ for failure) so that your web site JavaScript processes can submit forms, know if the submission was successful or not, and then take further custom actions based on the result.

This "AJAX Mode" is useful for:

  • Auto-detecting and handling any kind of submission failure.
  • Performing "behind-the-scenes" form posts
  • Complex business logic
  • Continuing operation on the same page after the form post is complete (e.g. after re-drawing part of the page).
  • Any situation where you do not want to navigate away from the current page.
Suppress/skip selected form fields
Internationalization: all form data converted to UTF-8
Dynamically name refilled template files with field values and time/date stamps.
When using PDF or text template files, you can specify rules for file name creation so that each post can have a different or unique name. You can insert date and time data as well as content from the form post itself.
Enable form submitter to download his/her submitted web form data securely
You provide a Template (PDF or other format) and SecureForm refills it and saves that temporarily. SecureForm passes a link to your "Success" web form page; you display that link to your end user (the "Success" page must be dynamic and not plain HTML). The end user has one hour to download that file.
  • SSL is used for the download link if you are using SSL for your form posts
  • Branding is used for the download link if you have Private Labeling for your SecureForm
  • Only someone at the end-user's IP Address uses this special download link.
  • The temporary download expires in 1 hour
  • Compatible with Ink Signatures -- the signatures will be appended to PDF templates.

Note that you must have the ability to program your web form success page so that it can read the passed web address and display that to the end user as a link.

This feature only works with Web Forms.

MySQL Encryption

Encryption at rest for MySQL-saved form posts.

You can optionally choose to have your MySQL-saved form data encrypted cell-by-cell using native-MySQL AES encryption commands using an encryption key unique to your form which is not saved in plain text anywhere on LuxSci. Use our "Online reporting tools" to view the encrypted data, or connect directly to your database and use MySQL AES_DECRYPT commands, together with your key, to access the data on demand.

Online reporting tools: View, search, sort, and download data saved in your MySQL database
Online reporting tools: Grant non-administrators read access to the data from specific forms saved in your MySQL database

  • The data saved to these WebAides can be accessed securely any time from any Web Browser.
  • Export a combined CSV file containing all the data from any selected set of stored CSV data files.

  • LuxSci's web interface can generate PGP keys for you.
