Black Box testing techniques are critical to application security.

Black box testing techniques are an essential part of any application security testing program. In contrast to white box testing where source code is available for testing and review, black box testing techniques are employed without access to code and with no information about the application structure. Blackbox testing techniques look for vulnerabilities and flaws from the outside of the application, imitating methods and tools that attackers might use to penetrate security.

Black box testing techniques can be highly effective at finding certain kinds of flaws, from server configuration mistakes or errors to input/output validation problems and other issues specific applications.

Routinely using black box testing techniques for application security testing presents challenges for many development teams. Managing black box testing requires a great deal of time and resources, which can be a hindrance for adhering to aggressive development timelines.

The Pros and Cons of blackbox testing techniques.

Blackbox testing techniques – also known as dynamic analysis – are a crucial component of a comprehensive application security testing protocol. Blackbox testing techniques probe applications in production and have no view of source code and no information about the internal structure of the software. Consequently, black box testing techniques operate similarly to the way an attacker would search an application for vulnerabilities, for example, by inputting malicious code into web forms or shopping carts.

Blackbox testing techniques can be very effective at finding certain kinds of flaws such as input/output validation errors, server configuration mistakes and other application problems. But blackbox testing is also highly resource-intensive to deploy and manage, creating issues for development teams trying to meet aggressive deadlines. And to be successful, blackbox testing techniques must be combined with other testing tools to identify and remediate more vulnerabilities successfully.

That’s where CA Veracode can help.

The danger of SQL attacks.

SQL attacks are among the most common threats to application security today. It takes relatively little skill to mount an SQL injection in .NET, Java or PHP, and the rewards for hackers are significant. Successful SQL attacks enable malicious individuals to access sensitive information stored in databases, make unauthorized changes to the content of an app or website, view users’ credentials, and more.

Hackers typically initiate SQL attacks by entering SQL commands into web form fields. If the application fails to adequately clean this untrusted data before using it in an SQL query, the attackers’ SQL language may be executed by the database, compromising systems and breaching application security.

The bad news: most enterprises still fail to put proper controls in place to prevent SQL attacks. The good news: stopping SQL attacks is relatively easy, but frequent and consistent testing of apps in development and production is critical. Automated testing is even better, enabling developers to focus on coding while automated testing tools perform a .NET, Java or PHP SQL injection test to identify vulnerabilities.

When choosing the application security and testing solutions that can help to prevent SQL attacks, more development teams and enterprises today turn to CA Veracode.

The threat of SQL injection in Java applications.

For attacks like SQL injection, Java applications remain a primary target and the damage to an organization can be significant. An SQL injection in Java is easy for even novice hackers – a few simple lines of SQL in a web form field can provide unauthorized access to an application’s database, enabling the attacker to view or steal data or change the way the application behaves.

Preventing SQL injection Java attacks is relatively simple – applications must validate all data inputs against business-specific rules and prevent users from using queries to dynamically interact with database. But these fixes are only helpful once SQL injection Java vulnerabilities have been discovered, and few organizations have the application security and testing technology in place to identify weaknesses that could permit Java SQL injection.

The reason for this lapse in application security? Traditional testing technology has usually been cumbersome and expensive, leading to unacceptable delays in the software development process.

How to stop SQL injection in .NET applications.

When it comes to SQL injection, .NET applications continue to be the primary target. Even hackers with little skill or experience can mount a successful SQL injection .NET attack by tricking an application into sending unauthorized SQL commands.

In a typical SQL injection on .NET applications, hackers enter various SQL commands in the form field of a website or web application. If the application adds these commands to an SQL query without first validating the information, the malicious commands may be executed by the database. As a result, hackers can gain access to databases, view confidential information, steal or destroy data, or make themselves administrators of the database server.

To stop these SQL attacks successfully, it is essential to continually test for SQL injection in .NET applications, both while they are in development and in production. Testing third-party applications is also critical, as many applications that are purchased or downloaded contain .NET SQL injection flaws.

When you want to implement tools to prevent SQL injection for .NET apps, CA Veracode offers automated, cloud-based app security services that make testing easy and cost-efficient.

Combating SQL injection in Java applications.

SQL injection in Java web applications continues to be a significant threat to enterprise security. The reason: a Java SQL injection is remarkably easy to pull off, yet many companies do not have adequate technology in place to prevent it.

Hackers can initiate an SQL injection in Java by getting an application to include malicious commands in an SQL query of the database. Typically, attackers enter SQL commands into a web form field – if the application doesn’t properly validate this untrusted data, it may be added to SQL commands that are executed by the application’s database. As a result, hackers may be able to gain access to the database in order to view, steal, manipulate or damage data, or to set themselves up as an administrator.

While stopping an SQL injection in Java is relatively easy, most companies fail to put protective measures in place. A simple Java, .NET or PHP SQL injection test can quickly find vulnerabilities in most applications, but these tests must be applied frequently and consistently across the software portfolio.

As a leading provider of application security solutions for enterprises worldwide, CA Veracode offers automated testing technology that can help to effectively prevent SQL injection in Java applications.
