Our Complex Approach to Securing Web Applications


The most secure web applications are those that are developed initially with security in mind. Q2 specialists follow a holistic approach to designing, building and supporting secure web applications. We address security issues on all application tiers (web server, application server and database).


Our Secure Web Application Development Approach


While developing secure web applications we analyze vulnerability categories and potential threats (external or internal) depending on application scenario and technologies used. This enables us to develop an effective security architecture and take proper countermeasures.


Vulnerabilities and Potential Threats

Securing Practices and Countermeasures

Authentication


Network eavesdropping, Brute force

attacks, Dictionary attacks, Cookie replays,

Credentials theft

  • Partition of public and restricted areas
  • Account disablement policies
  • Proper credentials verification and storage
  • Proper password handling
  • Authentication data protection
  • Communication channels securing using SSL

Input Validation


Buffer overflow, cross-site scripting, SQL injection

  • Thorough input validation
  • Proper input filtration
  • Centralized validation strategy
  • Proper database access

Authorization


Privilege elevation, confidential information disclosure, data tampering

  • Multiple gatekeepers
  • Authorization granularity
  • Role-based security
  • Strong access controls
  • System level protection
Configuration Management

Unauthorized access to application administration, hacking of configuration data

  • Role-based administration with strong authentication
  • Secure communication channels for remote administration (SSL, VPN)
  • Restricted access to configuration data
  • Least privilege approach
Sensitive Data

Sensitive data discloser, network eavesdropping, data tampering

  • Role-based access to sensitive data
  • Sensitive data on demand approach
  • Restricted access to configuration data
  • Data encryption
  • Proper information storage and secure communication

The above vulnerabilities are just a part of a bigger list. Internet, intranet or extranet applications each has its specific security issues and challenges that need to be analyzed and addressed.
