PHPMaster.com:
8 Practices to Secure Your Web App
February 04, 2013 @ 12:56:40

PHPMaster.com has posted a new article with some high level security tips and reminders for PHP developers when wanting to help prevent issues with their applications. The article provides eight tips, each with a brief description.

When it comes to application security, in addition to securing your hardware and platform, you also need to write your code securely. This article will explain how to keep your application secure and less vulnerable to hacking.

The good practices they recommend include input data validation, protecting against XSS attacks, preventing SQL injections, protecting session data, proper error handling and protecting included files. There's some good reminders here, but it barely scratches the surface of effectively protecting your application. These tips are the "low hanging fruit" for securing your app, so be aware that there's more things to worry about than just these eight.
