SQL Injection for Dummies

Being a Security Tester, I have one of the most teasing and innovative jobs in my profession. We, testers, are asked to identify as many major security vulnerabilities in the application, given limited time and resources. We have the constraint to explore the application in lesser time than the developers who build the application. We have to discover all the vulnerabilities present in the application, while the hacker conveniently has all the time and resources to do that. Well, that’s what makes this job interesting and challenging.

As SQL injection continues to be the dominant technique for data fraud, I would like to dedicate this blog to the topic in an effort to eliminate this problem. Let’s get started on the basics of how to identify an injection. Continue reading »

What’s the Mantra for detecting your security threats?

Many new applications are emerging out in the market on one-side and new security threats emerging on the other side. Earlier, product owners were not serious about their application security and they did not give much importance to security testing, since hackers were few in existence.

Now, product owners have begun to understand the importance and criticality of application security and they want their products to be secure.

Testing the application’s security manually is possible but becomes a mammoth task. Well, the right tools should help a tester progress with detecting the security threats in the application.

Estimation for Software Testing

Do you estimate Testing effort as X% of Coding effort?

Scene 1:

The customer has provided adequate documentation on the requirements for the software to be developed and now requests for a quote. Pre-sales consultants, with a developer background, spend just enough time in analyzing the requirements and have discussions with the developers/architects/project managers on how much effort it would take for the development (analysis, design, coding, project management) in the specific architecture/technology. They would go through a series of refinements with various stakeholders before it is being projected to the customer. However, when it comes to the point of estimating the testing effort, the oft-heard response is: “Oh! Don’t you worry; it is just x% of the coding effort. That has worked for us…..”

Well, that’s a scene I have witnessed many a times.

Now, let’s cut to Scene 2: Continue reading »
