Web security testing cookbook : systematic techniques to find problems fast

"Among the tests you perform on web applications, security testing is perhaps the most important, yet it's often the most neglected. The recipes in Web Security Testing Cookbook demonstrate how developers and testers can check for the most common web security issues, while concluding unit tests, regression tests, or exploratory tests. Unlike ad hoc security assessments, these recipes are repeatable, concise, and systematic - perfect for integrating into your regular test suite." "Recipes cover the basics from observing messages between clients and servers to multiphase tests that script the login and execution of web application features. By the end of the book, you'll be able to build tests pinpointed at Ajax functions, as well as large multistep tests for the usual suspects: cross-site scripting and injection attacks."--BOOK JACKET
