Summary and Info
75% of attacks targeted against specific systems are aimed against the web application itself; not the operating system or network. While current security technologies and practices are aimed for the operating system and network, the custom developed software that runs the web application is the most exposed portion of any website, and often the most vulnerable. This book defines Web application security, why it should be addressed earlier in the lifecycle in development and quality assurance, and how it differs from other types of Internet security. Additionally, the book examines the procedures and technologies that are essential to developing, penetration testing and releasing a secure Web application. Through a review of recent Web application breaches, the book will expose the prolific methods hackers use to execute Web attacks using common vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting and Buffer Overflows in the application layer. By taking an in-depth look at the techniques hackers use to exploit Web applications, readers will be better equipped to protect confidential.
