About the Book
As software engineers, we often think of security as an afterthought: build it, then fix it later.
Truth is, knowing a few simple browser features can save you countless of hours banging your head against a security vulnerability reported by a user. This book is a solid read that aims to save you days learning about security fundamentals for Web applications, and provide you a concise and condensed idea of everything you should be aware of when developing on the Web from a security standpoint.
Don't understand prepared statements very well? Can't think of a good way to make sure that if your CDN gets compromised your users aren't affected? Still adding CSRF tokens to every form around? Then this book will definitely help you get a better understanding of how to build strong, secure Web applications made to last.
Security is often an afterthought because we don't understand how simple measures can improve our application's defense by multiple orders of magnitude, so let's learn it together.
