Web application attacks: Types and countermeasuresDate: Nov 15, 2011
Not all Web application attacks are created equally; different layers of a Web app require different means of attack.
In this video presentation, expert Cory Scott explains different Web application attack types that occur in the wild and how they target different layers of a Web application, from the browser to application functionality, data repositories and the Web server environment. He then gives targeted strategies for locking down enterprise Web apps against these attacks.
