Web 2.0 Security - Defending AJAX, RIA, AND SOA

Service-Oriented Architecure (SOA), Rich Internet Applications (RIA), and Asynchronous Java and eXtended Markup Language (Ajax) comprise the backbone behind now-widespread Web 2.0 applications, such as MySpace, Google Maps, Flickr, and Although these robust tools make next-generation Web applications possible, they also add new security concerns to the fi eld of Web application security. Yamanner-, Sammy-, and Spaceflash-type worms are exploiting client-side Ajax frameworks, providing new avenues of attack, and compromising confidential information. Portals such as Google, Netflix, Yahoo, and MySpace have witnessed new vulnerabilities recently, and these vulnerabilities can be leveraged by attackers to perform phishing, cross-site scripting (XSS), and cross-site request forgery (CSRF) exploitation. Web 2.0 Security: Defending Ajax, RIA, and SOA covers the new field of Web 2.0 security. Written for security professionals and developers, the book explores Web 2.0 hacking methods and helps enhance next-generation security controls for better application security. Readers will gain knowledge in advanced footprinting and discovery techniques; Web 2.0 scanning and vulnerability detection methods; Ajax and Flash hacking methods; SOAP, REST, and XML-RPC hacking; RSS/Atom feed attacks; fuzzing and code review methodologies and tools; and tool building with Python, Ruby, and .NET. Whether you're a computer security professional, a developer, or an administrator, Web 2.0 Security: Defending Ajax, RIA, and SOA is the only book you will need to prevent new Web 2.0 security threats from harming your network and compromising your data.
