Yetukuri, V. S., & Peele, E. (2008, May). Web Application Security Flaws. Presented at IFD&TC 2008, New Orleans, LA.


Data collection organizations that collect information over the Internet must diligently address web application security concerns to maintain data integrity and corporate reputation. While many of the typical vulnerabilities are well-publicized, some are not. Even more elusive to most organizations is how to effectively test for these vulnerabilities. This presentation will provide an overview of the 10 most common web application security flaws as identified by a 2007 OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) report and cover some of the freely available and commercial security testing tools that are available that address a variety of threats on a variety of development platforms.
