Don't let your data go over to the Dark Side!


I found a useful resource containing a whole list of academic papers on web-application security.

This list represents an attempt to collect academic papers on the subject of Web application security sorted by the year of publication.

  • Defining a Set of Common Benchmarks for Web Application Security
  • The Essence of Command Injection Attacks in Web Applications
