Web App Security: Why So Hard?

 

Action… Mystery… Intrigue…
What does AppCheck’s latest have in store? Read on to find out.

 

Synopsis:

Due to their large and complex attack surface and the difficulty in ensuring they are secure, web applications continue to be a prime target in attacks. All it takes is a flaw in the application itself, its framework, the web server or proxy server configuration, or even some third-party component (e.g. a JavaScript library that is embedded on each web page) to lead to a full compromise of a host or network.

In this session, we will talk both generally about the trends in web application security and look at specific examples of how key vulnerabilities arise (e.g. discussing how, without adequate sanitisation, tainted user input can reach dangerous functions within some layer of the system), paying particular attention to those more subtle cases that usually go under the radar, such as within HTML5 applications. The webinar will also explore hacking scenarios based on real-world examples.

Overview:

– Gain an appreciation of the attack surface complexity of modern web applications
– An insight into how vulnerabilities manifest, whatever their particular form, and their detection through means of inference and signatures
– Examples of subtle, lesser-detected yet high impact vulnerabilities, such as those relating to HTML5
– An appreciation of sound versus flawed input validation and sanitation
