Academic Papers on Web Application Security

Cyber Raptors Hunting Your Data?

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.

Hacking web applications has become a big thing in the last 5 years, just look at the number of holes found in common PHP applications.

It has papers from 2004-2006.

Subjects cover a good range including:

  • SQLrand: Preventing SQL Injection Attacks
  • Bypass Testing of Web Applications
  • Defining a Set of Common Benchmarks for Web Application Security
  • The Essence of Command Injection Attacks in Web Applications
  • A Practical Approach for Defeating a Wide Range of Attacks
