This book defines Web application security, why it should be addressed earlier in the development and quality assurance lifecycle, and how it differs from other types of Internet security. The book also examines the procedures and technologies essential to developing, testing, and releasing a secure Web application.
The book will review recent Web application breaches and expose hackers’ prolific methods to execute Web attacks using common vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection, Cross-Site Scripting, and Buffer Overflows in the application layer.
