about the technology

Nine out of ten web applications have security vulnerabilities. Apps built with the Microsoft stack are no different. This book lays out everything you need to know to secure your ASP.NET web applications, including unique security APIs, browser interactions, and common threats.

about the book

ASP.NET Core Security is a practical and hands-on guide to securing web applications built with ASP.NET. Written by Christian Wenz, a 20-year veteran of web security, it reveals attacks that threaten your apps and introduces the built-in ASP.NET features you can use to defend against them.

You’ll start on the dark side, exploring the weapons used by hackers, such as cross-site scripting, session theft, and SQL injection. Each attack is illustrated with a use case plucked from the headlines, including rogue Firefox extensions and Adobe password thefts. And you’ll really appreciate the detailed C# code samples that show you how exactly to prevent these attacks! You’ll learn how to implement countermeasures, activate browser security features with ASP.NET, and securely store application secrets to keep them safe from attack.
