Your essential reference to software security testing—from the experts.

Learn how to think like an attacker—and identify potential security issues in your software. In this essential guide, security testing experts offer practical, hands-on guidance and code samples to help you find, classify, and assess security bugs before your software is released.

Discover how to:

  • Identify high-risk entry points and create test cases
  • Test clients and servers for malicious request/response bugs
  • Use black box and white box approaches to help reveal security vulnerabilities
  • Uncover spoofing issues, including identity and user interface spoofing
  • Detect bugs that can take advantage of your program’s logic, such as SQL injection
  • Test for XML, SOAP, and Web services vulnerabilities
  • Recognize information disclosure and weak permissions issues
  • Identify where attackers can directly manipulate memory
  • Test with alternate data representations to uncover canonicalization issues
  • Expose COM and ActiveX repurposing attacks
