Ajax Security by Billy Hoffman, Bryan Sullivan

The Hands-On, Practical Guide to Preventing Ajax-Related Security VulnerabilitiesMore and more Web sites are being rewritten as Ajax applications; even traditional desktop software is rapidly moving to the Web via Ajax. But, all too often, this transition is being made with reckless disregard for security. If Ajax applications arent designed and coded properly, they can be susceptible to far more dangerous security vulnerabilities than conventional Web or desktop software. Ajax developers desperately need guidance on securing their applications: knowledge thats been virtually impossible to find, until now.Ajax Security systematically debunks todays most dangerous myths about Ajax security, illustrating key points with detailed case studies of actual exploited Ajax vulnerabilities, ranging from MySpaces Samy worm to MacWorlds conference code validator. Even more important, it delivers specific, up-to-the-minute recommendations for securing Ajax applications in each major Web programming language and environment, including .NET, Java, PHP, and even Ruby on Rails. Youll learn how to:Mitigate unique risks associated with Ajax, including overly granular Web services, application control flow tampering, and manipulation of program logicWrite new Ajax code more safely and identify and fix flaws in existing codePrevent emerging Ajax-specific attacks, including JavaScript hijacking and persistent storage theftAvoid attacks based on XSS and SQL Injection including a dangerous SQL Injection variant that can extract an entire backend database with just two requestsLeverage security built into Ajax frameworks like Prototype, Dojo, and ASP.NET AJAX Extensions and recognize what you still must implement on your ownCreate more secure mashup applicationsAjax Security will be an indispensable resource for developers coding or maintaining Ajax applications; architects and development managers planning or designing new Ajax software, and all software security professionals, from QA specialists to penetration testers.
