Unleash the hackers' arsenal to secure your Web applications

In today's world of pervasive Internet connectivity and rapidly evolving Web technology, online security is as critical as it is challenging. With the enhanced availability of information and services online and Web-based attacks and break-ins on the rise, security risks are at an all time high. Hacking Exposed Web Applications shows you, step-by-step, how to defend against the latest Web-based attacks by understanding the hacker's devious methods and thought processes. Discover how intruders gather information, acquire targets, identify weak spots, gain control, and cover their tracks. You'll get in-depth coverage of real-world hacks--both simple and sophisticated--and detailed countermeasures to protect against them.

What you'll learn:

  • The proven Hacking Exposed methodology to locate, exploit, and patch vulnerable platforms and applications
  • How attackers identify potential weaknesses in Web application components
  • What devastating vulnerabilities exist within Web server platforms such as Apache, Microsoft's Internet Information Server (IIS), Netscape Enterprise Server, J2EE, ASP.NET, and more
  • How to survey Web applications for potential vulnerabilities --including checking directory structures, helper files, Java classes and applets, HTML comments, forms, and query strings
  • Attack methods against authentication and session management features such as cookies, hidden tags, and session identifiers
