Title: Protecting Your Application End to End

As more and more data travels across the web,
opportunities for hackers multiply. The device
you used in the late 90s was at a lower risk of
being hacked than the device you use today. Your
web application is even more at risk today since
it is composed of multiple vulnerable components.
The risk gets higher each year as attacker's
techniques get bolder and more sophisticated. The
reality of computing in the modern age is that
securing any one part of an entire system is not
enough to defend against real attacks. Thinking
broadly and holistically about a security
solution end-to-end is the right path
forward. Today, some companies take the approach
of implementing multiple solutions to protect
against external attacks application attacks,
mobile threats, or DDoS attacks. Take, for
example, malware pretending to be legitimate
software on your mobile device, a tried and true
attack that is used to execute malicious code on
a device. To prevent such attacks, most people
use vulnerability scanners on their mobile
device. They just stop there and assume they are
being protected. Or take man-in-the-middle
attacks as another example. Some companies just
protect the data during transmission by
instituting encrypted protocols like HTTPS in
hopes of routing data around the web securely.
Unfortunately, this doesnt protect them from
protocol-level vulnerabilities. Security should
be an integral part of coding your website and
protection should follow at every step along the
end-to-end content delivery path  not just
before application deployment.
  • What are the points along the content delivery
    path? We see the web application security world
    divided into three parts
  • The server where the content originates and web
    applications are executed
  • The middle mile across which the content is
  • The browser where the content is consumed
  • Within each of these parts, there are a set of
    threats and applicable defenses. Essentially, you
    want to layer on protection at each point along
    the path and that defense in depth increases your
    confidence in your system.
