Web Security: A prototype Tool for Detecting Web Application Vulnerability

H M Andan, G. Aravind, Tripty Singh


Today`s fast growing software industry cluster of platform have been developed for the user conveniences due to the various platform`s, development of application for each platform becoming crucial to make a compatible for all the devices and platform, so developer stared using web applications as a major platform, which is compatible for all platforms. Hence web has become major platform for the developers. Due to increase in the web application development, interest of attackers started exploiting these applications. This paper address a methodology and a prototype tool to evaluate web application vulnerabilities (XSS and SQLi). The methodology is based on the idea of injecting realistic vulnerabilities in a web application and automating mechanism to attack application. To support the assessment of existing security mechanisms a tool is developed to detect such vulnerabilities. The process of validation based on including the evaluation of false positives in SQL Injection attacks and XSS. Analyzed results represents an efficient way to evaluate such vulnerability and to point out their flaws which provides ways for their improvement.
