I am concerned about security when using POS, and OpenERP in general, in retail environment on both PCs and iPads. Is there an OpenERP best practices guide to securing the client operating environment?

Application Security on user access.

Security of Operating system.

You have to take administration of relevant Server OS which you use. [ubuntu 12.4 is best]

enable best firewall for server & in openerp allocate right security group to user.

For best practices, gather difficult user role and implement test and refine and share online to get accurate feedback.

I understand the need for basic hardening, but I am concerned about attacks on the the browser connecting to an OpenERP instance.

What about only accessing an instance from a workstation/iPad using a VPN in blocking mode which closes all interfaces and ports other than the ones dedicated to the VPN connection?

Is this something that is commonly used/recommended?

I do not know very depth of VPN, But you can install nginx server, enable proxy configuration, from nginx limit the users who only have access on it( or give IP Range), server application must only accessible from smart-dump terminal which are only eligible and responsible to access it.

When you talk regarding Security, must follow ACL of software and ACL for physical system, and ACL for human who only have access.

Server Security by ip address. Application security by group/role.
