Web Security Testing: The Basics and More
Web applications are often security critical or serve as front-ends for security critical applications, making web testing for vulnerabilities an essential part of software testing. Unfortunately, most software testers have not been taught how to identify web security issues while testing applications. Join Derek Evans as he shares what you need to know to security test web-based applications as part of your overall testing process. Learn about the most common web security vulnerabilities and how they are introduced into web code and exploited by hackers. Explore test techniques for ensuring that common security features are tested; learn how to identify key security risks within web applications; and find about about security testing techniques and tools to mitigate them. See examples of common web security vulnerabilities and how to identify them. Take home a compendium of tools and techniques to test the security of your web applications going forward.
