Introduction and adaptation of new technologies like Ajax, Rich Internet Applications and Web Services has changed the dimension of Application Hacking. We are witnessing new ways of hacking web based applications and it needs better understanding of technologies to secure applications. The only constant in this space is change. In this dynamically changing scenario in the era of Web 2.0 it is important to understand new threats that emerge in order to build constructive strategies to protect corporate application assets. Application layers are evolving and lot of client side attack vectors are on the rise like Ajax based XSS, CSRF, Widget injections, RSS exploits, Mashup manipulations and client side logic exploitations. At the same time various new attack vectors are evolving around SOA by attacking SOAP, XML-RPC and REST. It is time to understand these advanced attack vectors and defense strategies.Presentation Title: Securing Next Generation Applications – Scan, Detect and Mitigate
McKinsey’s recent global survey suggested that 80% of companies are investing in Web 2.0 technologies. Web 2.0 technologies are no longer restricted to social networking site but forming backend to enterprise level applications. This evolution is giving rise to next generation application hacking and attack vectors. It is imperative to understand these new attacks and scanning methods to detect vulnerabilities. This presentation will be full of real life cases, live demonstrations, new tools and techniques along in-depth coverage on the latest concepts and methodologies.
