Threats o f web the security
As web application grows the threats also grows side by side. The trends for using web 2.0 to create links by socials networking at virtual workplaces and communities has significantly increased the number of available threat to the applicational security. Business communities has now adapted online business sources to fulfill their work requirement and transactions which has empowered the hackers to act more actively in attacking the online activities. We applications are usually attacked openly and directly by the threaten codes and hackers algos. These hacking identities either look for the corporate compromise or threat the users by insisting them to download the infections.Recent research has evolved that many of the web applications are directly attacked also by the corss site scripts and structral query language infection formulation that are integrated to the normal applications by the hackers which results is failure of server,Web page data theft, and network collpase.Link building and web community development has also contributed in increased the number of threats. 50 percent of hackers target business and work networks for spreading the virus through web applications.Shared information is equally beneficial anf harmful when web security is concerned.
XSS errors SQL injections are at the high rank in top 25 error ratings in web application threats.
Standards for Security
The emerged standard for providing the web application security is the OWASP which provide security for the entire architecture of the web based application. Other sub security standards are designed such as WASC which stands for the web palliation Security Consortium has formed a has incident database for individual web hacking activities which provide all the possible way hackers can attack the web application. This helps the developers to provide suitable measures for protection. This has been provides an open source to the public which helps them a lot as web security guide.
Technology implementation in web application security
When treating security it must be kept in mind that it basically depends on variant people and web processes. Hundred of technical possibilities and security solution are available that minimizes the threat risk. Building blocks have been designed for handling the security which offers secure web applications to the users. Some of the high level solutions include
- Black box tools for testing scanners and software that are used in web applications
- Code analyzing tools area also provide that are commonly known as white box tolls which analyze s the ability of eth code or web program to manage the threats.
- Fuzzing tools are also available which analyzes the input by the users and developers.
- WAF, Web application firewalls which acts a layer to block the threat from penetrating into the actual web code.
- The most famous among the above tolls are the password cracking tools that measure the strength of the passwords to make security more strong.
