php|architect’s Guide to PHP Security
Security is a hot topic these days, with new exploits and patches released on a daily basis for all sorts of operating systems and applications.
Recently, the security bubble has expanded to touch the PHP world, and several well-known applications have been the target of a great number of attacks.
Despite all the negative publicity, however, PHP is and remains a very stable – and very secure – programming environment. php|architect’s Guide to PHP Security, written by security expert (and frequent php|architect contributor) Ilia Alshanetsky, provides you with a guide that covers everything you need to secure existing PHP applications and write new ones with security in mind.
- Provides techniques for both PHP 4 and PHP 5
- Includes a step-by-step guide to securing your applications
- Provides comprehensive coverage of security design
- Teaches you how to defend yourself from hackers
- Shows you how to distract hackers with a â€œtar pitâ€ to help you fend off potential attacks
Rather than drowning you in overlong explanations, this book focuses on providing you with accurate information on proper security techniques, and showing you a step-by-step approach to writing applications that are stable, secure and reliable.
