The hands-on, practical primer for professionals who want to prevent Ajax-related security vulnerabilities
Ajax has the potential to revolutionize the Internet as we know it, but with this potential comes equally dangerous new security threats. Ajax Security exposes the minefield of security vulnerabilities inherent in the Ajax framework and provides a guide for developers to safely navigate through it and create a secure application.
Each chapter begins with a myth about Ajax security which is then debunked. Throughout the book, you will find case studies of actual exploited Ajax vulnerabilities to illustrate key points. The authors also include specific recommendations for securing Ajax applications for each of the major Web programming languages (.NET, Java, and PHP) as well as for the popular new language, Ruby on Rails.
With this book, you will learn to

  • Become familiar with security issue in the Web 2.0 world
  • Create secure Mashup websites
  • Identify vulnerabilities that may have crept in your code
  • Keep new vulnerabilities out of your code

Geared towards software developers who want to create Ajax Web applications that are secure from attack, Ajax Security will also benefit QA testers and pen-testers who want to find vulnerabilities in the Ajax applications that they test.
