The solutions in this book provide answers to these critical questions and increase your ability to thwart malicious activity within your web applications.

Each recipe includes background data explaining how the attack works, an ingredients list, and step-by-step directions. You'll learn how to prepare for attacks, analyze web transactions for malicious activity, and respond with the best solutions.
