NetTuts.com:
Best Practices When Working With Sensitive Data Securing Your Application
July 21, 2014 @ 10:27:07

The NetTuts.com site has a new tutorial posted today sharing some tips about working with sensitive data in your applications and steps to secure it.

In my previous article, I showed you how to protect your server from attacks and malicious software. This part will focus completely on the third layer of security - your application itself. So here, I will show you techniques that you can use to protect your application from attacks and intrusions.

There's three main topics covered here, each with a few subpoints and some code examples:

  • Using a Database
  • Use a Salt When Hashing
  • POSIX: Drop Privileges When You Don't Need Them
