SPI Dynamics has maintained aggressive research on AJAX for several years to ensure the entire SPI Dynamics' product line addresses the security of this rapidly growing technology. The release of Secure ASP.NET AJAX Development is another example of the company's abundant expertise in the area of AJAX security and cutting-edge technologies that define the future of web applications and Web 2.0. Microsoft's ASP.NET AJAX technologies, commonly known by the codename "Atlas," and other AJAX frameworks are changing the way web applications look and are developed, but web developers are often unaware of the security risks they are introducing into their applications with these emerging technologies.

AJAX fundamentally changes the user experience and server interaction in web applications, so developers may be taking otherwise secure applications and opening up new angles of attack for hackers. Secure ASP.NET AJAX Development outlines the increased security risk inherent with AJAX technologies and addresses how developers can use Microsoft's ASP.NET AJAX to implement secure AJAX applications. The Short Cut discusses web application security pitfalls that are common in AJAX development, given its focus on increased client processing and more frequent access to web services and databases. In addition, the digital Short Cut focuses on a few key security principles for AJAX developers-demystifying AJAX security and teaching how to develop secure AJAX applications using ASP.NET AJAX Extensions. The Short Cut concludes with a walkthrough of security testing best practices that will help effectively uncover security problems in AJAX applications during development and testing.

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
