DevShed starts off a new series today focusing on security in web applications, specifically in PHP-based ones, with this first article - an overview.

With the web and web sites open to everyone -- including malicious hackers -- the security of web applications sits at the top of the list of issues on any web developer's mind. In this eight-part series, we will look at the security concerns of PHP developers, and what they can do to make their web applications more secure.

They talk about the importance of having a security plan from the start and look at a few simple steps to get started with in enhancing your application's security - the proper use of register globals, using error reporting to correctly catch problems and how to minimize the code exposure of your app.

DevShed:
Am Introduction to PHP Security
February 15, 2007 @ 06:50:52

Devshed has posted a new article covering one of the hottest topics in the PHP community right now - security.

Security in a scripting language such as PHP is more developer-dependent than language-dependent. In other words, although the language offers you the tools to create secure code, it cannot prevent insecure code. Thus, the degree to which code is secure almost entirely depends on how security conscious a developer is.

The article looks at three security-related topics:

  • Register globals
  • error reporting
  • code exposure
and for each provides explanation and code where needed to help the reader understand the issues and possible problems with them.
