What You Should Know About AJAX Security: 24 Tutorials

Posted by Xavier Ashe on October 18, 2006

For the most part AJAX does not significantly increase the security
vulnerabilities in most web applications. However, javascript, XML and
asynchronous server calls do have potential holes if not properly
implemented. If you're an application developer or security
professional there are things to watch out for with AJAX applications.
If you're new to AJAX there are many hazards to watch out for, and
tutorials and examples are one of the worst culprits for security
vulnerabilities. Before you start downloading examples and making them
live on your server you should learn a bit about security first. Below,
you'll find a list of tutorials, examples, and articles that will
detail many of the security implications of using AJAX..

As always special thanks to all of the hard work done by the
developers and security professionals who have taken there time to make
all of this great information publicly accessible. Also if you know of
other great resources or tutorials pertaining to AJAX please use my
comments section on this article to add to the overall list. Thanks!
