== Web Application Security - Find the Flaw, or Someone Else Will Do==
by Victoria Polzer
Short description:
Extensive information on web application security mistakes (and how to
avoid them) has been available for quite a while. Yet many web
applications still come with flaws that are often easy to find and
exploit. The currently hyped AJAX will probably increase the number of
buggy applications, since it invites programmers to entrust critical
tasks like input validation and access control to the browser - thereby
making it easy for malicious users to bypass these checks.
This talk will provide a short overview of how web applications work and
then discuss the most common security flaws and attacks (e.g. SQL
Injection and Cross Site Scripting). It also presents methods and tools
that can be used to test for these issues.
