    Great security ideas

    This is a great book with a lot of really good ideas on improving ASP.NET applications and ASP.NET security. The book is organized into ¿ideas¿ which can help secure an ASP.NET (or really any) application. Beneath each idea is a list of what type of threats the specific idea mitigates, followed by the actual ASP.NET implementation. One thing I really liked about this book is that it¿s presented in a way which helps illustrate how hackers could infiltrate your web applications. I found this to be very effective in driving home a security lesson. The book is organized into ten different sections on aspects of ASP.NET security, which range from user management (which includes how to handle user names, passwords, and the like) to developing applications with security in mind (which includes issues like cross-site scripting attacks and error logging). Many sites with user management features provide a ¿Secret Question¿, which is used in case you forget your password. The secret questions often include questions like ¿What is the name of your favorite pet?¿ or ¿What city were you born in?¿. The book goes on to show that the secret question concept goes against everything security experts have been saying by demonstrating how hackers can use brute-force attacks along with educated guesses to gain unauthorized access. This book even discussed connection string issues and encryption in config files, which is an issue I am currently struggling with. Code examples are provided for all of the ideas presented, which are generally quite clever in and of themselves. If you are serious about improving the security in your ASP.NET applications, then do yourself a favor and read this book. I think you will find it was time well-spent.
