Certifications & Accreditations

It is an integral part of business operations and must be informative, accessible and user-friendly. Just as companies have become more digitised and reliant on more complex tech tools, hackers have become more sophisticated. Malicious activities across the web are widespread, and organisations must ensure that websites and web applications are safe and secure.

Security testing for web applications is the analysis of these six security concepts:

Integrity

Integrity

Ensures that the information provided by web applications is correct.

Authorization

Authorization

Maintain proper permissions for users to perform an action or receive a service.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality

Give access only to authorised users.

Availability

Availability

Ensure that services and information are available at any time.

Authentication

Authentication

Establish user IDs.

Non-repudiation

Non-repudiation

Ensure that a user cannot deny an action taken by them

Software developers need to integrate security into every software development life cycle (SDLC) step. Each stage of the process — define, design, develop, deploy and maintain — has specific security considerations that should be considered as part of the entire lifecycle.

The Need

Security testing of web applications is essential for businesses in all industries.

Security tests help identify vulnerabilities and ensure all data is safe from any unauthorised action.

WebApp

But more so for those that conduct transactions online. E-commerce-based companies, SaaS businesses and online banking providers or finance companies sit at the top of this list.

Security tests help identify vulnerabilities and ensure all data is safe from any unauthorised action. This includes sensitive customer data such as credit card numbers, credentials and personally identifiable information (PII).

When should you conduct web application testing?

Test early and test often’ - advice from (OWASP)

This is advice from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) regarding software security testing, and businesses across all industries should do so.

Comprehensive tests Timeline

Comp

Organisations should consider security for all their applications and develop a security development lifecycle. This means you should conduct security testing throughout the SDLC - especially for apps that deal with critical data.

  • MCSL

    Identify the business's web applications and their complementary assets. This asset discovery stage will outline which apps will be tested.

    Asset discovery stage

  • MCSL

    Check for outdated software and update them before conducting security testing web applications.

    Check for outdated software

  • MCSL

    Confirm user permissions and roles to ensure the app follows secure access rules.

    Confirm user permissions and roles

  • MCSL

    Check the current security measures to confirm if they are working optimally. These include tools like a firewall, malware scanner and secure sockets layer (SSL).

    Review current security measures

  • MCSL

    Perform a web penetration test for common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs), malicious structured query language (SQL) queries and cases of code injection.

    Perform a web
    app testing

  • MCSL

    Run configuration tests to check both application and network structure security.

Testing
  • Test physical network assets

    MCSL

    Test physical network assets for CVEs and specially developed software attacks. This involves testing switches, routers, desktops, printers and servers.

  • Check design & implementation of apps

    MCSL

    Check the design and implementation of business applications and JavaScript loading.

  • Confirm input validation is functional

    MCSL

    Confirm that input validation is in place and functional when accepting user data.

  • Assess authentication rules

    MCSL

    Assess authentication rules and security of session management.

  • Check web app configurations.

    MCSL

    Check for missing or misplaced web application configurations.

  • Ensure unauthorised access is restricted

    MCSL

    Verify if the web applications can allow unauthorised access.

Types of Web Application Tests

The three common types of web application testing

world

This is a test that looks at web apps to check for weak points that hackers can use to break into your system. Because it doesn't involve access to the application’s original source code, you can conduct it frequently.

SAST testing, on the other hand, looks for vulnerabilities in the application’s source code. It offers a more comprehensive outlook on the security posture of web applications.

Imitates a potential hacker’s actions and the steps they may take to breach the web application. Infosec personnel use their own professional experience and knowledge of software penetration tools to find security flaws in the web application.

world

SQL injection attacks are widespread because SQL language is often used to manage and direct the flow of information in applications. When used to communicate with servers that store critical website data, an SQL injection can allow hackers to change, steal or delete data. This type of attack is especially risky for websites that collect client information such as credit card numbers and login information.

CommonApp

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks are similar to SQL injection attacks, but it only runs in a user's browser when they visit a hacked website. An XSS attack aims to collect information that a user sends to the website or application. A leakage can damage a company’s reputation, and the company is often unaware there has been a breach until it’s too late.

MCSL

Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) forces a user to submit a malicious request to the application. Such actions could be illicit money transfers, so your application must use validation techniques to check the identity of anyone who visits your websites and related applications.
