Zend Developer Zone:
PHP Security Tips #6 and #7
March 12, 2007 @ 11:38:00

Continuing in their security theme for the month of March, the Zend Developer Zone has posted two more Security Tips for PHP developers out there:

  • The first tip (#6 on their list) talks about the benefits of casting all of the values going in to your SQL queries. This helps keep you and your data away from things like nasty SQL injection issues that could result in exposure of valuable data.
  • The second tip (#7) focuses on regeneration of session IDs to help prevent fixation. They give an example of how, without it, you could inadvertently allow in unauthorized users. Thankfully, one quick function call can remedy the situation - session_regenerate_id.

Check out their full list for more great tips.
