Securing Web Applications

Understanding Web Application Security


The OWASP project (Open Web Application Security Project) has several short videos which explain web application security and the most common vulnerabilities (Injection Attacks & Cross Site Scripting) in simple, easy to understand terms. The videos are listed at https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Appsec_Tutorial_Series and are highly recommended as a web application security primer.

OWASP also maintains a list of useful “cheat sheets” which cover topics such as Input Validation, Query Parameterization, PHP security, HTML5 Security, Authentication and more at https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Cheat_Sheets


Since we host many ASP.NET web sites, we have compiled some useful ASP.NET-specific resources below:
