Описание: Securing PHP Web Applications covers the most important aspects of PHP code security, from error handling and buffer overflows to input validation and filesystem access. The authors explode the myths that discourage PHP programmers from attempting to secure their code and teach you how to instinctively write more secure code without compromising your software’s performance or your own productivity.

Coverage includes

Designing secure applications from the very beginning–and plugging holes in applications you can’t rewrite from scratch

Defending against session hijacking, fixation, and poisoning attacks that PHP can’t resist on its own

Securing the servers your PHP code runs on, including specific guidance for Apache, MySQL, IIS/SQL Server, and more

Enforcing strict authentication and making the most of encryption

Preventing dangerous cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks

Systematically testing yourapplications for security, including detailed discussions of exploit testing and PHP test automation

Addressing known vulnerabilities in the third-party applications you’re already running
